Retired DTE employee in Washington, MI

Income ~ $45,000 annual income

Installed 5.7 kW solar system May 2010

 

Year one:

  • No energy (gas/electric) bills from May 2010 on
  • Received all income tax back for year 2010 (due to Federal Tax Credit)
  • Received $401 check  from DTE for excess generation

Year two:

  • No energy bills
  • Will not pay income tax in 2011
  • Expects a bigger check back again this year.

Next 20 years:

  • No energy bills
  • Over generation check from utility, annually

ROI

  • With DTE Solar Currents & FTC = 3-4 years
  • Without DTE Solar Currents = 5-6 years
