A quick update today on our recent solar-panel installation, which we discussed a couple of weeks ago.
For our last billing month, we pretty much produced as much power as we consumed. After credits for energy we pushed into the grid, we purchased only 4 kilowatt-hours of electricity from Rocky Mountain Power at a cost of $0.35. Our $9.03 bill was comprised almost entirely of mandatory charges and taxes.
Production continues to increase with the sun angle. Yesterday was clear and bright and it was our biggest day so far with 40.7 kilowatt-hours of production. Huge.
The best thing about it is those panels are sitting on my roof, invisible from the street or yard, and require practically no maintenance. Sweet!
