Here’s an idea. We have several acres of land, most of it covered by brush. A few animals live on our land. Otherwise it just sits there. We have no power or water on the land. The local power company wants to charge $6,000 to place a power pedestal on our property. If we build our main residence out there, they will refund the money.
I’m thinking about clearing an acre or so and installing solar panels for powering our RV when we have it out there, and for eventually powering our house when we build it. In the meantime we can sell the generated power to that power company. What do you think? It used to be pasture before being overgrown. We can use it to get good power out there without having to pay ridiculous fees. Or we could conceivably store our own power and use it when we need it. I’m not sure of any of the regulations regarding this, but I have the strong idea they won’t like it much.
