When you need to replace a hot water heater, your furnace and/or air conditioner, your stove/oven, consider electric options, including an electric heat pump.
About 10 years ago, in June of 2010, my ex-wife and I became the first homeowners in our Aurora, Colo. neighborhood to install a rooftop solar system on our single family home.
I feel like I am about to explode and I cannot, and will not, wait any longer to unload on one of the worst solar installation companies in the West: Sopris Solar. This, even though they are not finished with our solar installation, and lashing out right now could possibly make things worse. Of course, I am not sure how things can get worse because Sopris has been such an incompetent, poorly run solar installation company.
Thanks to the continued, massive burning of fossil fuels, our house, the earth, is literally on fire, as the Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg noted almost two years ago .
How many of you out there who have had solar installed on your residence have waited 15+ months between the time you signed the contract with your solar installer to the time that your solar system went online with your utility and was feeding electricity back into the grid?
I have been doing a lot to reduce my direct burning of, and support of, fossil fuels over the past decade. However, I've still got a ways to go, and I hoping to get to zero direct use of fossil fuels within the next five years.
