Solar - Does It Make Sense?

I guess I'll find out.

A while ago William Mertz started a thread about solar electricity in the area.

A number of people thought it made sense, but I didn't see a lot of people saying they were going to do it. ;-)

I'll let you know how it goes. I have made arrangements to have a 10 panel installation done at my home in Troncones. It should be done by November 23.

I have splurged and I'm having an air conditioner installed in the second bedroom. I don't use the air conditioning in the main bedroom, but renters seem to like air conditioning.

I have found that air conditioning and the swimming pool have increased my CFE bills dramatically (as in 10x). I couldn't justify putting in a second air conditioner previously, but if the solar system works as expected, it should be OK.

I'll post here from time to time to let others know how it is going.

So far, it has been a pleasure to work with William. We have exchanged a number of emails discussing a couple of sizes of installation and pricing. I've put down the 80% deposit of for a 10 panel installation and air conditioner. I'm in to it for a bit over M$106,000 now with just under M$27,000 remaining upon completion.

Feel free to ask me questions as this hopefully unfolds and doesn't unravel. B-)
