Our decision to install solar panels has been one of the best decisions of our 50 year marriage.  We are delighted to be able to say we spend ZERO on electricity and only pay for the service of staying connected to the grid.  Perhaps of more importance, it feels so good to know that we are not contributing to the carbon imprint in terms of electricity usage;  and, most important of all, we believe we have set a good example for our three daughters, three son in laws, and six granddaughters!  Our granddaughters (ages 7 to 13) are all keenly aware of the environment and the impact that we, as human beings, have on our planet.  It is, indeed, a win win situation for us!
