Sungevity brings back deal to save $1,000 on Solar through month end!

I’m excited to let you know that through the end of this month and for the first time in the better part of a year, Sungevity is offering $1,000 off on the price of a solar PV system for your home. If you aren’t sure if it makes financial sense, I’d suggest that if your electric bill is $100 or greater, or if you plan to buy an electric car in the few years, then it will save you money while also being good for the environment.

I’ve posted a lot about our experience going solar on my blog at http://www.evchronicles.com in case you want to read more.

As you can see in the graph I’ve attached, utility prices have increased over the years and we can only expect them to continue to do so in the long term. Even the recent decrease in the price of petroleum has not lowered electricity prices and with our grid aging and needing much improvement increases are inevitable.

Click on this link for a free hassle free quote that is based on a Google Earth picture of your rooftop (don’t worry, they will actually visit to confirm details before installing). Feel free to ask me if you have any questions about our experience with Sungevity and our installation, and let me know how yours goes! If you hit any snags, let me know. I have a number of friends I went to grad school with who work at Sungevity and I can always give someone a nudge if they drop the ball.

Please leave me your thoughts and comments on my blog too if you are so inclined. I would appreciate it and I read all of them!

Finally, thanks for reading this far and considering solar. Each one of us who invests in renewable energy is helping create a better climate for our children and generations to come!

Gotta Plug-in to Move

My wife and I have been busy looking for a new place to live. We haven’t wanted to move and only began looking because our landlord has a family member who is moving in to what has been our home. Sad as we are to leave our home we are grateful for our new and to finally have a backyard including a space to plant a garden.

The one almost deal breaker is that there is no outdoor outet to plug my scooter into. The great news is that our new landlord agreed to install a new outlet and split the cost with us! So North Oakland here we come.
