Solar Tour
solar power Today, I'm doing no scouting, no hiking, no work.
Today, I'm doing my little part to help promote alternative energy solutions - specifically solar power in my case. Our solar arrays have been in operation on our roof for a month now and we've produced over 800KWHours of energy. I'm part of a 'Solar Tour' today where people can drive around to different installations and see how it looks and how it works.
So, I'll be hanging around outside with my little laptop on a card table in the garage, waiting to show people the panels, the electric meter, and the web page where they can see the power being generated right now.

You can go to Enphase Energy and drill down in the map to any place of interest to see installations. If you drill down to Eden Prairie, MN you can see there are 4 installations and I'm the smallest producer - because mine is the newest.
You can go directly to Kautz Solar and view my solar arrays.

If you've thought about solar power, this might be the time to investigate further. Depending on the election results, current rebates and credits may go away in the coming years - and that support really makes a big difference in your cost to get set up.

Shine On!

How much does it add to your home value for tax assessment purposes?

Val - I don't know yet since it was just installed this summer.  I suppose it depends on the size of system, but it's such a new thing, I don't think the tax folks know how to handle it.
By the way, production is up to 1.3MWh now and I'm generating 3.5KW right now at 9:30am on a sunny, cold day. :-)

Nifty!!  I hope you left some capacity for the Tesla that is in your future.
