• Even more solar panels

    Did anybody notice something funny about my new photovoltaic system? Well I did. I noticed that it could have been bigger. There was room for four more panels. (My bad for not noticing that on the design plan.)

    So, I contacted the installers and they worked with the other entities involved and, presto, four more panels were installed today, a more than 20% increase from before. All this at no cost to me. The financing company gets more renewable energy credits, and I get more cheap power. They also, by the way, have all the liability of maintaining the system, and they guarantee output. It’s a win-win. Oh, yeah, and there’s that carbon offset thing too.  You’ll thank me later.
