Finally - We are on Solar Power.

After about six months of research and 6 months of waiting we finally have some solar panels on our roof. And just in the nick of time too I'd say as the last electricity bill was a shocker (no pun intended).

For the moment we have a 1.5K system installed but will look at adding more panels at a later date. They estimate that we will reduce our electricity bill by one third. I'll let you know if that's the case when we get our next electricity bill.

It's so satisfying to finally have achieved one of our biggest goals but don't worry I'm still all about the little things as well.

That is so exciting, just yesterday I made enquiries to have solar power installed at our place. I too was 'shocked' into taking action after receiving our winter electricity bill, $6oo! (normally $400) The reno's at our place have made the place so much colder, we had 'plastic walls' for weeks, hence the bill!

Hey Vanessa will have to talk to you about this when I see you next. We are starting to look into it at the moment. Great idea!!!!
