Make Your Own

Last panel going up!

We always like to make things ourselves when we can.  Well, now we’re making electricity! (Though we really can’t take any of the credit for the work.  Sundog Solar, and of course the Sun are the real power houses).

We have talked long and hard about solar electric over the years, not really knowing if financially it would ever be an option.  Now its really happened and it feels so good to have invested in something so worthwhile.  Ours is a 16 panel photovoltaic array (makes electricity not hot water), and is grid tied.  This system should supply all of our electrical needs plus quite a bit extra.  Eventually we hope to be able to switch our propane water heater to electric and ditch that bill too.

Yay for renewable energy!
