That's why he recently decided to put up some $25,000 to have a solar-power system installed at his home, banking on incentives from the federal government and DTE to recoup his costs within five years. “I'm all for going green, I like that, but that's not why I'm doing it,” said DeMars, who lives with his wife and toddler in a 980-square-foot ranch in the village of Milford. “I just want to save money.”
DeMars said rising energy costs had him thinking about solar power for the last couple of years, but like plenty of other people questioned whether spending the money to outfit his home with the system would be a wise move. “But once I heard about the DTE program and the federal credit, I did the math and found it was definitely worth it,” he said
A crew from D & R Energy Services — based in Milford and Brighton — was at DeMars' house a few days ago, installing an 18-panel photovoltaic system to harness solar energy and convert it to electricity. Robert Craig, senior engineer and owner of D & R Energy Services, said DeMars' home is the first in the Village of Milford to have the system installed by his company — but said there is a growing number of people who are recognizing the financial benefits that solar energy provides. Trouble is, the up-front costs are out of reach for many, particularly when the economy is struggling.
“A lot of people just don't have the money to put down initially. It kind of scares them,” Craig said.
Still, he said, with the rebates and renewable energy credits available, installing a system is a healthy long-term investment.
