This is the closest I’ve come to having to pass on a topic. Gutters in this part of the world are pretty boring and functional.
So, in the most tenuous link I could come up with – gutter = roof, I will tell you about our solar panels.
They took forever to be installed because in order to make them compliant our house needed to be re-wired, but now they are soaking up the (almost) summer sun. On a good day they produce almost as much power as we use (10 kilowatt hrs).
The whole solar industry went into a meltdown earlier this year when the new state govt took away some of the incentives, but it hasn’t effected us because we’re never going to make more than what we use. I think it will average out to about half of our power usage.
Every morning Jeff goes out and checks on what they made the day before and enters it into a website he’s made that graphs the energy output. It’s like a little pilgrimage of love every morning. The convertor thingy is fire engine red and very important looking. It’s a really good feeling to have them in finally, and now a sunny day makes me extra happy.
That is all.
P.S. here’s the graph.
