Mobile Homes And Solar Panels -- Or Mobile Home Parks And Solar Panel Arrays

I am wondering if there are any mobile homes that feature a solar panel array?  If yes, is it on top of the mobile, or on the land nearby?  Are there any mobile home parks that have installed solar panels for themselves as a business or their tenant / clients as a way of saving money or providing alternative energy?

It looks like CT has some grant programs to help pay for the cost like this one here or other programs like this one here.

This northeast solar installer site here claims a 5 year payback period with a life system of 20-25 years. If true, that seems to be something that would benefit the landlord to look into.

I haven't heard of that, but I would think that it might make more sense in your area in CT or in NY state to have solar installed for the multifamily buildings where owners pay hot water and heat.

Owners could install the system, take deductions for the repair/improvement on the property, take depreciation on the improvement and then net any savings on a monthly basis from their own bottom line. Are any landlords in your area doing that?

No Idea Peter.  That would be interesting to find out!
