Sunny news…

January 10, 2012

Do you want to know the best part of all of this lovely weather we have been having?  Sure the farm looks lush and green right now, but all of this sunshine has made us even greener.  I don’t know what has made me happier… that our last bill from SRP was ZERO thanks to our new solar panels from Royal Solar, or that our carbon offset was 3.14 tons for the month of December, or the equivalent of 81 trees.  To date since the system went in, the panels have produced 13.5 MWh, which could power 445 houses for one day, meaning our total carbon offset since this began is 9.30 tons or 238 trees.   In fact our bill was better than zero, we have a credit now.  This last month the panels put energy back into the power grid after providing the farm with all of the power we needed.  Love that!

Here is a little sampling of what else the sun helped with…

And my morning snack…
