I just got a new toy - We just added solar panels to our house.
Every hour or every time the sun changes I dash up to the garage to check the output and then race out to the power meter to watch it spin backwards.
It is somewhat ironic that as a result we are going to have to trim the crowns of several trees that impinge on our solar horizon.
We anticipate that this will reduce our electrical bill to zero.
However, due to a Reagan era clunker in the the Byzantine US tax code, we are going to be scrod and unable to obtain the Federal Tax credit.
