Tomorrow, if all goes as planned, we will sign the contract for the solar panels to be installed. The installation is scheduled for mid-April. I find this all so exciting! Yes, I should get out more! 😆
Above is a layout of the buildings. The solar panels will be installed on the middle building, which is the shop. We’re so lucky that it’s close to perfect as far as location to the electric meter, almost south facing, with no shade.
We chose a company out of Austin to do the work. Since it will be April before it’s installed, and since our electric company is about 6-8 weeks behind on the net metering, that means we will not have kW credits in our “bank” so we will probably be paying partial electric bills at least through September but hopefully, by then, we will never have to pay an electric bill again. Time will tell . .
I’m just happy to have the decisions made .. the company to do the work, the type system, the electric company we’re going to use .. now we can move on to the next exciting project and I think it has to do with . . birds! 🙄
