Some big fat cloud just sat down on the city. It would remind me of London if I had ever been there, I think.

I do know how you boys feel though... I've been trying to put a Solar PV system on my roof since November 2017.  Seems something is always interrupting....  I've had to refinance cause delays push me past the purchase window of the first loan.  Had to remove a electric meter from the house or pay for 2 sets of permits.  Now Met-Ed is saying they have to replace my transformer and its a billable upgrade...
That last one really POed me good!!! I had two meters feeding 2 200 Amp service panels so in my book that was 400 Amp service.  They are claiming I have a 15KVA transformer feeding the house and need a 25KVA to accept the backfeed from my Solar, a system that outputs a maximum of 150 Amps.

Estimated upgrade cost ~$2000. Ouch  

I'm arguing with Met-Ed right now and also bitching to the Solar company.  It looks like the Solar company is willing to "help" instead of loosing the sale of the system....

Just another day in the life of budweena... Confused

Mornin gents.

Bud I was thinking of you just the other day wondering how your project was going.
I had a solar pv system installed by a company years ago. Worst investment I've ever made.

Overcast, calm winds, and temps going to low 60s here.

If I remember right you only bought a 5KW system so you never get out from under the electric Co.
Mine is 20.5KW and will replace the electric bill completely plus an additional 25%...

Fixed lease going forward so no inflation... Big smile

IF I can get it installed... OuchAngryOuchDead

Everything is now approved by the electric company and Green Solar so transformer upgrade is supposedly the last hang up....   NO I don't believe them... Cry

Good morning gentlemen!!! It's supposed to be a Beautiful day hitting the mid 60s! Clap

I got the shock of my life last evening.  

First I received a call from Met-Ed.  Yes I have to upgrade the street transformer at my expense even though it's Met-Ed's property and will remain so.  Secondly, after the original estimate to upgrade coming in at ~$2000 the written estimate came out as $1305.50  Shocked  Thumbs Up  HITH did that happen?!?!?!? ClapClapClap

About 30 minutes after getting that news Green Solar called to tell me that they had decided to subsidize the upgrade.  Dead

My funeral should be Monday or Tuesday, I haven't decided yet. Tongue

I think I'm gonna buy a Lottery Ticket today.... LOL

Mornin gents.

G, can you operate a backhoe like a genie on a flying carpet? If so, have I got a weekend plan for you.

Bud, in my experience, the power company does not want you supplementing their power.

Overcast, mid 50s to 60s, with calm winds today.

I don't think a backhoe moves fast enough to interest Graham....  Tearing stuff down, yes but fast!

The Green Solar rep says they will start shipping the system next week!!! Big smile

I have entertained the idea of a 10kw wind turbine, and it would probably produce more power than I need. The price of the turbine is the cheapest part of the investment. The tower and the base it would need would be the largest part of the expense. When you get down to it, I can pay a lot of electric bills for what it would cost for the system.

It seems most here who go solar simply exchange their electric bill plus some for either leasing or making principle and interest payments to the solar company.  My bro inlaw spent $60,000 on solar panels for his house and is doing payments over 20 years.  When I asked him what the interest rate was to the solar company, he had no idea.  He didn't even comprehend that he would have to pay back considerably more than the $60,000 he borrowed. 

I would love to do solar, but would never want to borrow to do it.

The loan rates for my lease is only 2.99%.  Where the solar companies make out is the Government 30% kick back.  They make most/all their money on the front end thru federal tax incentives which they get under a lease.  Purchasers would get that under a direct purchase / private loan butt nobody out there will offer attractive rates for that.Angry
