Going Solar

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.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
