head_dunce writes "In a first for an automaker, American Honda Motor Co.will offer free home solar systems to customers, hoping the incentive will help its green reputation and make solar power more affordable.

  "Honda and Acura customers and dealerships will be able to install solar power with little or no upfront cost, depending on the customer's choice of plans. Customers will be given a choice to pre-pay for their solar electricity or pay a monthly payment that will be lower than the cost of their current utility bill, with insurance, repairs and monitoring service included," according to the company.

Customers in SolarCity's 14-state area are eligible: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington. Interested customers can visit www.HondaSolarCity.com and get a free web or phone consultation.

The total cost of installation and equipment is typically $10,000 to $20,000 for a residential solar system, the spokesman said."
