Let's here it for Solar Panels!!
In response to 140716: electric bills, posted by Richard B on Friday, 10 March 2017, at 4:59 p.m.
I have some good fortune and some better fortune. I have a vacation rental down by Magic Sands. The Solar City people analyzed my usage and calculated that I needed 47 panels!! They must have based their calculations on the winter sun in Fairbanks Alaska. Now dig this: they got to the house (after a year) with all the panels and 8 guys to install them. The foreman stepped on the roof and a single cracked. He said "I'm not installing a system on this roof." They bought me a new roof!! THEN the permit expired AFTER the new rules went into place. But HELCO allowed me to renew the permit with the old net metering provision. Yes, THAT HELCO!! O.K. but that's only the good fortune because it's a leased system, so I pay a couple hundred bucks a month. The better fortune is that at my house I'm totally off the grid. So I have no electric bill at all here. Here being inland south of Palani Road sort of parallel to Creative Day as the drone flies.
