Everyday is solar power!

April 27, 2011

In the past, having solar was just a distant dream, now it is reality. Back in the old days I thought of solar, but the loan payments were not in the budget at the time. Now, I have a small lease payment, a small electric bill and by the end of the year, it looks […]
