SOLAR ELECTRICITY 101
Solar panels create electricity when the sun hits photo-voltaic cells, exciting electrons to flow and create DC current which is then transformed into AC current for use in our homes. It takes many panels to offset the electricity use in an average home, and this can be expensive, however, there are many cost structures available to you. Solar may be impractical for some home owners as you need the right roof structure with the right orientation. Renters are out of luck as owning the location for your panels is paramount. In addition to reducing the amount of electricity you need to buy from the utility, there may be additional incentives in the form of "Green Credits" which vary from state to state.
