Other Benefits:

Two car charging stations for electric cars

Efficiency or Sustainability Improvements:

In additional to solar, we are renovating our 1875 farmhouse to superinsulate and switch all heating / appliances to electricity. R60 roof, R40 walls: most types of insulation - double wall, spray foam, foam board, hard pack cellulose.

My Motivation:

Saving the planet, low cost of living for when we retire

Solar installers were very customer focused - lots of helpful information about the process

Additional Notes:

Savings are at current renovation state. Will be more when complete.
