In my spare time, I’ve been getting bids to install solar panels on the roof of my home. We’ve picked a local company that is offering the SunPower solar panels, which seem to be the most efficient we could find.
Here in California, we pay some of the highest electricity rates in the country. In July of 2006, our bill was over $700.00 for electricty rate alone. Yikes! So we picked a system where we would have net metering.
The process starts with the writing a check and we reserve a rebate slot. Hopefully, the installation will be done in about 2 months, and once we get county permit approval.
So… I guess that makes me a solar machine quilter after it is installed. LOL
