We weren’t sure just how much power we’d get from our solar panel installation, but it’s looking very possible all our electricity will be generated by the sun! Right now we are getting an energy credit, as the panels are making more than we’re using over the course of the month. This energy will come back to us in the winter, when the panels don’t generate as much power. Pretty cool.
It doesn’t quite mean we pay nothing to the utility; we still have to pay the $14.00 supply charge assessed every month, but other than that, we’re done with conventional power.
