Although my solar panels were installed several weeks ago, Oncor had to put in a meter and turn them on and they just got a-round-to-it late Thursday. Friday was my first full day using my solar panels and my estimated usage, according to TXU was $.33. Saturday it was cloudy and Adam and I did laundry so our usage was about $1.81.
To remind you: in installment #8 of my series, “Goodbye natural gas you dirty boy! It’s over between us!” I told you that Texas solar incentives are back through One Block Off The Grid so going solar is easy and affordable. My panels will offset approximately 50% of my electricity usage and lock in a low rate of approximately 3.2¢/kWh for the next 20 years.
