I find myself pushing my car a lot. Does that count? Doesn’t work so hot for me ‘cause it’s hard to steer

The back (eastern) side of our roof is covered in solar panels. It provides more than enough energy to power the washing-machine and most other appliances. Also, we do not use our tumble-dryer during the spring and summer. All of our clothes are dried outdoors on a line.

The solar panels have already paid for themselves (6 years), and now we save a little money every month. Just doing out part to make the world a little greener!

Thanks for the GA Eambos. That is the kind of info I am looking for. Do you have any plans for enhancing what you already have going?

Once we save up some more, we want to put up more solar panels. Also, we want to add a few more windows to let the natural light flow through the house.
