We’re Generating Solar Energy–Finally

July 29, 2010

Update on our solar system…it’s working!  As of today, we have generated 640Watts or 14kWh (kilo Watt hours).  Whoopee!

Hagar's solar system up and functioning

A clarification must be made here.
We choose NOT to be off grid. Why?
Batteries–toxic, non Earth friendly, and they require maintenance.
Instead we choose to manufacture our own energy (small at first) and feed it into the grid. This method effectively offsets our electric bill.
To afford the system, we took advantage of rebates from the Colorado Governor’s Energy Office (GEO) and Federal tax incentives to offset nearly half of the price of our system.
We feel it was worth the investment.
