    Solar

    Our panels and meter are installed. Just waiting for electric company to come out and do their thing. Huge investment. Anybody else here use solar energy?

    Coworker has had it on his house over a year and his light bill last august was around $50.00 highest bill (2600 Sq ft 2 story house.). Most times it is less than $10.00 a month. He really is glad he made the investment.
    For me going fishing is just about getting outdoors. Catching fish is just a bonus.

    $44,000 with a $10,000 discount from the Green Police. Thanks. We appreciate that.
    House is 4,000 sq ft, built the same year I was born. 1968. We have 2 AC/heat units. Both need an upgrade as well as windows. Electric bill is OUTRAGEOUS in winter. Summer is high but tolerable. I think we made a smart decision but only time will tell. Windows are next.
