It’s winter in New England! The chill of the cold has set in and all my mind is worrying about is what the next electric bill is going to cost me. It’s times like these when I really wish we had solar panels – we could be saving a lot of money. We have propane heat, the furnace of course runs on electricity, and that furnace is coming on quite frequently. You add the heater in my son’s room, which also is propane powered but needs electricity to operate, it’s running at times – almost non-stop. And then there’s my daughter’s room. It’s so cold in her room that we purchased a room heater just for her room – and that too is electric powered.
Some day I might just find myself investing in solar panels. Between the cost of the summertime electric bill and the wintertime electric bill – we could save ourselves a lot of money in the long run. It’s said the initial outlay of funds would be recouped in 5-7 years because you’d no longer be paying to ‘rent’ your electricity from the electric company. Coupling that with how it is such an Eco-friendly energy solution, I would feel good about doing my part in promoting a cleaner environment for my children, their children, and so on down the line. There’s also the option of renting solar panels. Renting panels could be a great alternative depending on your electric bill and your budget.
