Solar energy helps protect our environment, reduce our carbon footprint and lower greenhouse gas emissions. Plus, it can lower power bills by about $1,500 annually. Yet only 8% of U.S. households have installed solar panels at home.

One reason is the price tag: the average cost of solar panels is more than $17,000, with many households spending as much as $25,000. What’s more, it can take more than eight years for the investment to pay off.

This is a great article and well worth your time to read.  The $1,500 annually savings it mentioned seemed low to me, so I did what so many people are doing, GPT Chat and asked the question below.  Who’s more believable, me, or GPT Chat?
