I developed and run www.Find-Solar.org It is a free public service
site that has been sponsored by DOE, CA Energy Commission, ASES, and
It would be nice if you could let people know about this; and perhaps
link to it
Note: This is different from Findsolar.Com which is a For-Profit site
that actually goes directly to CoolerPlanet.Com who sells sales leads.

Pretty cool estimator. However, I live in Georgia and according to
DSIRE.org, Georgia gives a 35% ($0,500 cap) tax credit for PV, but
your estimator said $. Is this an error, or am I reading something

You are correct. I added this to our database of incentives for the
state of Georgia. We try to keep things updated, and partially rely
upon people like you notifying us changes needed/requested.

Thanks. I'm kind of new to this and just wanted to make sure I was
reading the dsire website info right.
Hopefully this new federal incentive will really help get solar in
many homes! We've done some small stuff (solar attic fans and spot
lights) but with 65% in tax incentives now in Georgia, I think we'll
be able to install to provide some of our own energy!
I'm a firm believer in renewable energy - it's time the US wakes up
and realizes fossil fuels won't be around forever.We have our own
energy sources, and while it may be a little more expensive to get
them started, in the long run, we'll be thankful!
Like I said before, your estimator is very cool and really helps
people understand what they can expect to pay and their returns - I
haven't found anything like this on the web. I'll definately plug it
whenever I can. Keep up the great work!

I am pleased to see that your site is linked from Southface Energy
Institute in Atlanta on their Solar Road Map page:
Keep up the good work with your site.
