TECHNOLOGY AND YOU – GARY M. KAYE – You are hard-pressed to drive through a neighborhood nowadays and not see at least one roof covered in solar panels.

However, if you’re over 50 with retirement on the horizon, is a large investment in solar power really worth it? It could be. Check out this analysis of solar power from Courtni Wisenbaker-Scheel a writer for website Modernize.
