Solar Panels

So DH and I are considering installing solar panels. I'm on the fence about it.  Our electricity bill isn't incredibly high, but the idea of not having an electricity bill is attractive.


The real issue that is holding me back is that a good number of the panels would have to be installed at the front of the house due to the direction our home faces.  Problem is I think the panels look ugly!  Is that silly of me??  They're a bit of an eye sore!  I wouldn't care if it was the back of the house...but I don't know.  Here is a pic of the front of our house and then I photoshopped panels where they would go.


The left top roof (above the two windows) would be covered in the panels. The right side that is over the garage would not. What do you think?  Would it be too much of an eye sore?

I love the idea of solar panels.  Like you, our electric isn't outrageous, but any savings...I'm all for it.  I personally don't think the panels would look that bad on your house and I have been seeing more and more panel "fields" being put up around where I live.  DH and I have been discussing doing this later on down the road once we get other obligations settled.  I say GO FOR IT!!!

If the panels look how you have shown them I would absolutely go for it. They don't look too intrusive and the savings will be worth it - plus I'm all for being green!
