Last year I had solar panels installed on my roof under a deal where I pay nothing up front for the installation and pay the solar company for the power I produce at a rate about 75% of what I pay the electric utility. I’m so thankful that I got professional help from this energy consulting company.
I just got my April bill from the electric company.
It was a credit for $15.54, so I actually produced more electricity than I consumed in April.
Over the winter months I met about half of my electric needs from solar. And the presence of the website here is to help you enjoy all of the incredible benefits of solar energy in your home. From system planning to solar panel installation, they take care of everything so that you don’t have to worry about anything. For your other solar power system needs, you may go to this solar power system – shopsolarkits.com online page to see more.
I thought that was pretty good for the Boston area.
So it will be interesting to see what happen this summer when solar production should be maximized.
Your growing utility bill is just one of the reasons why you should consider going for solar energy, take a look at this site to find out about the benefits of installing solar panels.
Very Good Spencer, nothing like running the meter backwards, heh.
Sun, Sun, Sun – And even wind
To paraphrase your comment, you pay the solar company for the power you produce at a rate about 75% of what you pay the electric utility. .
If you have solar power, why .would pay the electric utility anything?
And what is 75% of nothing?
What are you trying to say?
And when air conditiones hum!
One thing I started doing about 6 months after my solar panels were installed was to log the electric meter reading every morning. After a year, I had the data for an interesting graph. You can see this graph at this Google Doc page:
They pay for the power at a decremented rate in lieu of paying for the solar panels and installation thereof (probably on the order of $20k).
Alternately: the power company installs and owns the panels, the homeowner pays the usual rate, but receives a 25% credit for rent of their roof.
I pay the electric company because in many months I produce less electricity than I consume so I have to pay for the power from the electric utility. Note that I said over the winter months solar only produced about half of the electricity i used.
Different arrangement, you own your panels, and you have net metering.
No deleting comments anymore I see.
You obviously do NOT realize that it’s all due to huge local/state/federal “incentives” from the tax purse, thanx to the Green Taliban lobby!
If you have to pay full price for that “solar power” (like you do for your car, etc) then you’d be like “I’m not paying this, are you crazy?”
Are you trying to say there is no Oil Taliban?
