Energy News For The Smart Homeowner

Are you STILL wondering whether you should switch your business to solar power in 2017?

As an industry insider, I still am amazed at PG&E's annual rent increases, even after tracking them each month. A 32% increase is rather massive, especially when it comes on top of other large rate increases in the previous years.

Energy is a nuisance purchase for any business. You can't do without, plain and simple, but as energy is the ultimate commodity (electrons), one would expect business owners to act with cold rationality, and run their business on solar to the extent possible. Solar energy, made on your own rooftop or property, costs about 50–70% less  than the power you buy from PG&E. As you are still connected to the grid, there is no risk of running short or running out. Let's repeat that: solar gives you the same energy you have always used to run your business, at 50% to 70% less, risk-free.

Yes, you read that right. Why would anyone get energy in any other way?
