Solar System sizing misconceptions

Most people think that when installing a solar electric system for their home it should produce 100% of their current monthly usage in order fo it to be cost effective. When in fact by installing a system that is sized to keep you under Baseline usage (>300kwh per month) on your utility bill, you can reduce the cost of the system by several thousand dollars and only have a utility bill of about $30 a month instead of a few hundred a month.
