Renters don't have much say in whether a building gets solar panels or not - it's completely up to the landlord. And seeing as landlords don't pay our electric bills, we aren't expecting the footsteps of installers on our roof anytime soon.

However, we were interested to read about the problems facing city residents who would like to install solar panels on their home. From inflated costs to lack of subsidies, it seems there are many hinderances and not always enough incentives to make the switch to solar. We're curious if anyone out there has looked into adding solar panels to their home, and if so, what were the costs and benefits for you?
