I am a college student who is working on a project. I wrote a
fictional "pitch" to try to get more tax incentives for home owners to
install solar electricity systems in their homes. The catch is, I
have to have a knowledgeable person give me feed back on how I can
improve my work. Here is the link to my survey from surveymonkey.com.
Thanks to anybody who responds.

This is probably not what you want to hear, but solar cells are about
the worst way possible of improving energy efficiency in a home simply
because as you have already found out, they are simply too expensive.
Better solutions which are far cheaper and save more energy than the
solar cells will ever produce are
Solar Water Heating.
Better Insulation. (Cuts down energy bills for heating and cooling.)
Campaigning to get some Govt incentives for these would be much better
than higher subsidies for solar cells.
