A few things to consider about solar:
The cost of solar panels has plummeted 70% in the last 5 years. Even without major advances in solar panel output, solar has become a cost competitive energy source.
Powering your home with solar is now cost competitive with energy produced from your coal-powered utility. The cost of solar energy is already cost competitive in Utah, which is about the last place in the USA we’d expect this to happen (besides Wyoming).
Numerous options now exist to pay for solar panels including $0-down leases, innovative solar loan options, as well as cash purchasing. You can now afford to put solar panels on your roof, with the punch-line that it’s the only home improvement that pays for itself.
