As I recently wrote, I am trying to decide if when I get a solar system installed on my roof here at 1644 W. Canal Court in Littleton, Colo., which will hopefully happen sometime in the next several months, I should spend more money to get a bigger system or use some of that money to buy battery storage and go with a smaller system.
Six months ago, the HOA community that I live in, Highline Crossing Cohousing Community in Littleton, Colo. went online with 19.6 worth of solar on our so-called Common House and on some of our shared garages here. I worked with other residents for 18 months to persuade residents to go solar, not an easy task in a community of 40 residents where 90% of the households have to vote in favor of a measure in order for it to pass. Yes, that is the "cohousing" ethic/approach -- cohousing is a form of living that is deliberately extra community-based and community-focuses.
To the right-wing folks who are INCORRECTLY claiming greening the grid caused the power outages in Texas: YOU ARE WRONG!
