What the heck is a photovoltaic, grid-connected system? Solar energy systems can be expensive to install but there are currently more tax incentives available than ever before. The Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Energy is a great resource that lists important information and incentives by state. Home solar systems are becoming increasingly common and as they continue to shift into the mainstream, prices will continue to decrease.
