I work with a company called  Citizenre that will come install solar
panels on your house at no cost, The company then sells the solar
energy back to you at less than you local utility and never raise your
rates.  There is no installation cost , no system purchases ,no
maintenance, no performance worries and no rate increases for the life
of your contract. Full term contracts before the 1st have the $00.oo
deposit waived and will have 2005 electric rates locked in for the term
of your contract .  If you or your friends have questions or would like
more information please visit www.solardays.com or call me at
512-788-5281 ** citizensolar@gmail.com. I am open to both interest and
feedback on this . -Tim

OK, there's a lot of guys in these groups that know a lot about this
stuff.  I'll be very curious to hear what people think of this one.

I mean in the "ideal world", this wouldn't SOUND like a bad idea.

And assuming it is legitimate, what if rates somehow (unlikely, I know)
drop BELOW the 2005 rates you mention here?  And why 2005 rates when
we're about to hit 2007?

 I briefly read the fine print on their website the other day.  If I read it
correctly, then it says the homeowner is responsible for all repairs and
maintenance to the system.  If it breaks you have to pay to have it fixed.
While it is broken you have to pay Citizenre for the electricity it should
have produced while it was broken.  I presume this is to encourage you to
pay to have it fixed even if you don't have the money at the time.  There
doesn't seem to be any reason for them to install high quality product the
way the deal is written. Unless the price of electricity goes down AND you
sign a long term contract with them there is nothing in this deal for the
homeowner, except extra holes on your roof and a higher insurance bill.

It assumes you want to be green and that is why you are doing it.  I could
of course be wrong on all these points I have not talked with the dealer.

 Mike,

Thank you for your reply.I am glad to have some thinkers out there.
Citizenre maintains the systems. It is their system to maintain so they
take responsibility for its full operation. It does go on your
homeowners insurance . My insurance will only costs me an additional
.25 a month. My agent said it should not be very expensive for anybody.
As for the quality they do have a reasons to install high quality
material . They both want to maximize the output and the durability. If
they have low output panels they have to pay for more panels on your
roof as well as the upkeep. The looked to make the decision where the
output and durability lines crossed to maximize both sides of the
equation. I think one needs to look at this a different way . Citizenre
will have the largest solar plant in the country next year. The
economies of scale allow them to affordably offer this service. I see
myself both saving money with the fixed lower prices and using green
energy to power my home. I am also betting that energy prices will not
go down dramatically . Doing so would be against the long historical
average.  Its a win-win in my book and many things in it for me as a
homeowner.

Thank you

Tim Padden
