After years of talking about it, we’re finally going solar. Over the coming weeks, we will be working with Puget Sound Solar to install a 49 panel Silicon Energy system. The panels and transformers are made in Washington and qualify for the highest production incentive at $.54 kWh. This, along with the 30% federal tax credit, are the reasons why we are doing this now. We want to take advantage of the credits and incentives to reduce the payback time on the system, which is projected to be around nine years. We’ll document the installation and post additional information about the system and the choices we made with this installation in future posts. Right now, I just wanted to share the news because we’re both pretty dang excited about this!

    I am totally excited for you too! My husband has always been interested in the solar technology. Will be fun to watch your project go from planning to implemented.
