Grouch estates goes solar!

The Missus and I are turning to solar power for Grouch estates.  The process will take about three months before everything is installed and switched on, which puts us right smack in the hottest part of summer for our happy valley.  At last we will be able to run the air conditioning at a temperature lower than 84F!  

This program has us paying a low fixed power rate to a provider and reaping the Edison credits for selling back our power that the cells generate.  Not sure how the third party power provider makes money in this whole thing but we're promised a 30% reduction in our annual power bill plus the excess power generation credits that we can cash in at the end of each year.

Now, if we add one of those new Tesla house batteries, maybe we can just about cut all of our power purchases!

Stay tuned for further developments.
