- I signed a five year contract to sell Solar Renewable Energy Credits at $240 each for five years. This has provided $12,000 over the first five years. I will continue to sell the SRECs at a lower price starting in 2016. The system has paid for itself in under five years.

I have used the system to demonstrate the benefits of solar to many other people
Just keep the wires off the roof.
