Whitley's with the solar electric system

After installing solar on their home in Salisbury, Massachusetts, Ray and JoAnn Whitley open up their home to show people how they can save through green technology:

“80 to 85 percent of what it costs to run the house is paid for by the solar panels,” JoAnn Whitley said.“We save about $4,500 a year. Heating this house with oil used to be about $3,000 a year and our electric needs came to about $1,500. We also get Solar Renewable Energy Credits back from the state. The credits amount to about $1,600 a year we get from Massachusetts. We get that credit for 10 years.

Added together over the past two years, their overall savings is more $12,000, and Whitley estimates they’ll recoup what remains on their initiate investment in the next six months.
