Ever wonder whether there's enough sunshine where you live for solar panels to work? Well, it turns out that sunlight is just one of the main ingredients that make a solar home energy system tick.
Sunshine is probably not the first thing that comes to mind when you think about New Jersey, for instance. But the Garden State is the country's second-biggest solar market, after California. How is this possible?
If you're thinking about installing solar panels on your home or business, it's helpful to think in terms of three broad categories: sunlight, electricity prices and incentives, like solar rebates and tax credits.
