I grew up on the beaches in Florida and my wife grew up on the rocky coast of Sweden. Our daughters have grown up loving the sunshine in Colorado.
We have always been thinking of ways to recycle, reuse, and conserve to make the world a better place for our children.
We have been considering solar panels since the early 2000s, studying the costs, the efficiency of solar panels, and many other factors. Recently Real Goods Solar contacted us and we had them put together a proposal. This time the finances made sense and we are excited about joining the growing community of solar powered homes. I would like to think we are doing our part to help Xcel Energy shut down another coal fired power plant earlier rather than later.
It is just one more reason for us to love the sun!
