Thought I would recycle the cartoon I drew last year! Seems appropriate.
It has been a year since Joe and I installed a solar system on our house. We love it! Now that we had the data for the first year, the number of panels we installed worked out well. Our electricity cost for the entire year was under $10!
This year, thanks to increased government support (tax incentives, rebates), the cost savings can be about 30%!! Here in CA, there are both state and federal incentives. It just made sense since we live in a part of the US with extremely expensive electricity.
Besides going solar, Joe and I recycle, compost for the garden, and we built our house with some earth smart and energy saving devces. besides being green, it just makes sense financially.
I would love to hear if you have changed your behavior in order to be more green or save $$. Regards, Carla
