Solar roof update

by Thomas Beutel

We’ve signed off on getting a 3.85KWh solar photovoltaic system. Return on investment will be 10-12 years, probably less if we get a plugin-hybrid electric car in 3 or 4 years. The roofers will be here tomorrow to mark the joists, and sometime in the next week or two, the racks will go in.

I’ll be commenting more a bit later about our installer, Real Goods Solar, but so far they have been FABULOUS!
