You should know that a green energy system is a long term investment. Paying off a full scale system powerful enough to power your entire home could take you up to fifteen years.

The size and cost of your green energy system will depend on how much energy you need to produce. If you have a large household and many appliances, it might be best to work on reducing your energy consumption before investing in a green energy system.

Consider replacing your old appliances with energy efficient ones and get an energy monitor so you can easily keep track of the amount of energy used in your home.
The best way to finance your green energy system is to borrow enough money to cover the initial cost of your system as well as its installation. Some vendors will let you set up a payment plan, but your financial institution will give you a better interest rate if you have a good credit score. Plan on making monthly payments that correspond to what you usually spend on your energy bills. Paying off your green energy system could take you up to fifteen years but you will not have to make any changes to your budget.

You will then be able to use the same amount of electricity from the main power grid and receive a check for the power you did not use. You could actually make a small monthly profit if your green energy system can produce more power than you need.
