Talk to me about solar power...

One of the long term goals for our small, suburban homestead is to move towards being more energy efficient and less dependent on the local power grid. After looking into the various power sources, we believe that solar is the way to go for us. We have recently fixed all remaining problems with our roof (where the system will need to be installed) and are now finally ready to take this next step, but we are complete novices when it comes to alternate power systems. I do know that we will not create enough power to completely cover our needs, so we will need to remain hooked to the grid for those times. Any advice, experiences, suggestions, things to watch out for, etc would be most welcome! Thank you in advance :)
