Dave Ramsey takes a call from a listener who is conflicted about whether he should borrow in order to pay for the installation of solar panels on his property.
Here is more on Dave’s response:
“I believe that the solar technologies that are out there now are vastly superior to what they were even just a decade ago, but certainly, when it all started coming out when you and I first started seeing it 20 and 30 years ago, it was crap but the technology is amazing now and it’s worth it.”
“I endorse solar, and I have endorsed solar companies for installs in a lot of markets, but I would not recommend on a financial basis that you do an eight-year break-even period or a 10-year break-even period that’s too long. Here’s what I would do if I were in your shoes, okay?”
“I would do the deal. I’d pay cash for it because I have 260 thousand dollar income!”
