We added a new member to the family this month - solar panels.  Since I have a 2013 FFH and not an Energi, they won't cut down my transportation costs, but they'll take care of my expenses for our pool (with a heat pump that I also added with the panels), the water booster pump needed for irrigation and for air conditioning, along with cutting my heating costs probably in half.  Our area is close to ideal for the solar panels, with sunshine around 90% of the time during daylight hours.  The panels have averaged 44 kWh per day output in the four days they have been hooked up.

Good for you!  We just signed up to have solar panels installed on our home in Denver.  We're in the permit-approval stage right now, and the panels should be installed next month.  We're very anxious to see how they work.  In anticipation, my son and I took out our old natural gas water heater and replaced it with an electric heater.

Really? That's great though. I sure hope that it'll turn out good for your household.
