Solar Power

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 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.

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.
