We now start on our solar energy projects. The first is to reinstall our solar hot water heater which was removed for the re roofing. After that we plan on installing a 4,400 watt photovoltaic system on our south and west roofs. None of this will be visible from the street but it will give us a fair measure of independence from the grid without relying on conventional generators in the event of a power outage. In addition, unlike a conventional generator that only runs in an outage, the photovoltaic system will be generating electricity every day to offset its cost.
