Seung and I moved into a new house in April. Ever since then I have been busy at work turning it into my green dream home. Last weekend we reached a major milestone: solar power.
This 5.4 kW solar photovoltaic system should produce most of the electricity we need to run the house. I’m stoked.
This whole system will pay itself off in about five years. After that I’ll have a minimum of 20 more years of free energy guaranteed by a warranty. Right now, the incentives for solar in the District of Columbia are better than they’ve ever been. Interested in doing the same? Check out the District’s website on their incentive program right here. And if you don’t live in DC, check out this national database of renewable energy incentives.
