Peter’s solar array

October 2, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC+0

Free

We have had a 7kW solar+battery system for six years now. We went solar to reduce our carbon footprint, save on energy bills, and it was my midlife crisis, the symbol of which is a Porsche medallion attached to the front of the rooftop panels. We also have a Nissan Leaf EV, which is charged mostly by the sun. As a quality of life issue, there’s nothing better than driving a non-polluting vehicle that’s charged with free fuel from the sun.

Because we have battery backup, every time the grid goes down (which isn’t often), our power stays on and our neighbors line up with their extension cords (kidding about the neighbors).
