Save the Earth, Cover Low Income Houses with Solar Panels

It seems like such a good idea. I was talking on Twitter with Jesse Menn and we decided that this would work. Why not?

You can lease solar panels from Solar City for about $80 a month for 15 with zero down. That gives you about 25 kilowatt hours of electricity, which is enough for my family of four, sometimes with some to spare. In many places you can now sell the extra back to the grid.

The benefit of having one single bill every month that's always consistent is quite obvious, in contrast to a fluctuating electricity bill. I could never afford to buy them outright so this is how we've gone here.
