Tomorrow I have to drive myself to work because my carpool took the day off. That means I can sleep a little later, take my trash to the dumpster at work, and pick up another door from the Habitat Store for my little bathroom addition. I have exactly 24 inches for a door. I found one that size before so I am hoping I am lucky twice.
My boss is getting solar panels installed on his home, enough to run all of his electrical requirements. After rebates and incentives he will pay around $20k. I am interested because I need more electricity on my land and my choices are to bring it out from one power box on the opposite end of the 4 acres or to bring it through a dry creek bed where is would have to be 6 feet deep and encased in concrete. Both of those options sound expensive although I don't really have any idea of the cost. Solar panels can be purchased through the local electric company's solar program and they will buy back some of the excess solar power.
I don't exactly have $20k lying around but it is something to consider if my parents did indeed want to move here.
