Solar Panel System Completed

On March 25, 2011, PSE&G came out and changed out our old meter to the new digital meter which can run backwards. This was the final step needed in order to be able to turn on the solar panel system. It works great. We have had 4 days in a row of sun, so the system has produced well over this period. Total cost of system = $13, 410. I signed the contract on 9/16/2011, so it took about 6 months to get a system installed and working. Hopefully this process will become more streamlined for future customers but dealing with the state and local inspectors may always take time. Now I need to sign up for Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs).
