  •  we love our solar! (2+ / 0-)

    We did not get a bargain, but installed 36 panels and solar water heat on our roof as part of a renovation. Living on a hill in North Carolina, we knew summer would produce a lot but were surprised by the winter - today was bright sun, and with the trees still bare, our panels get a long day of rays. Today we produced 37.6 kilowatt hours. I love how a local power outage only means we reset clocks - a few seconds and we switch to our battery backup. Our attic underneath the panels does not get nearly so hot in summer, too.
