Exploring the Benefits of Solar Power
Correspondent Jaymes Vaughan is in southern California visiting a home with Robert Evans from American Solar Direct to look at solar panels. The homeowners explain how they will see utility expenses reduced more and more over time as the cost of electricity goes up, all the while reducing strain on energy consumption. Robert explains how a payment plan reduces the expense of solar panels, and shows how easy they are to take down if a homeowner should move. A visit to the electric meter shows it going backwards, as the solar panels provide power to the grid, earning credits that can be used for night power usage.
