Lets get the machines a humming. I hate my power bill.
Unless the power companies buy up all the tech and still charge outragous prices
GrimpachiOK I had not heard about that. $50 dollars does seem steep but $5 to use the grid I think I could live with. When I last checked into installing solar here in Florida there is a $20K write off but no rebates but I believe states such as California had many thousands more worth of rebates paying upwards in some cases of $2 per installed watt in some cases that is over half the cost.
Paying $5 a month doesn't seem bad
The way my old house was set up is during the day any power generated that I didn't use went back into the grid effectively running the meter backwards and at night I used the grid power. After about a year of moving in I started to get checks from the power company for the credits not used the year before. It was much more than $5 a month. I started becoming more frugal at that point and buying more energy efficient appliances.
Man I miss not having a power bill. $50 though would have been more than I got back in some of the winter months though so that would have sucked.
