Why should you finish your conservation carrots before enjoying some solar panel sweets?
Installing a new solar array is exciting (and even a little glamorous in some circles!), but you could make much more renewable energy for a lot less money by minimizing the amount of energy your home uses first. Like granny always said,
"Energy saved is energy earned."
(Okay, maybe it was, "A penny saved....")
Here in Chelan County, you can save thousands of dollars while still “generating” the same amount of power as a solar array by first using less energy at home. Once your home is a lean, green conservation machine, go all out with your solar desserts!
