2017 Favorites | Part 1

While some parts of 2017 weren’t so great, others were truly satisfying and awesome.  That’s how life is, isn’t it?  I wanted to a few posts to document my favorite moments, things, experiences in 2017.

Favorite Home Improvement:  Installing Solar Panels

Going to solar power was the best thing we’ve ever done for our house.  Our electric bills went from over $200/month to $11/month.  Most months we generated more into the grid than we used.  And it’s clean energy.  We truly love it.  We wish we had done it sooner, but this year seemed to be the sweet spot between price and performance.  After all, we live in sunny San Diego!  Why did we wait so long to get solar power??
