Pros: Today's solar panels are less expensive than they once were, can be fitted onto many styles of existing roofs (that part of your roof facing south is most important) and can potentially save you a big chunk of change on your energy bills in the long run.
Cons: The initial installation costs are still quite high, and you won't recoup your investment with energy savings for many years. So if you are planning to move anytime soon, it could be wiser to wait to install solar panels on your next home.
