We’ve just had twenty solar panels installed on the roof.
Apparently, we’ve joined a growing trend in the Netherlands. In 2012, there was 260 MW of energy produced via solar panels – a doubling of what was produced in 2011.
I must admit I get a kick out of watching our electricity meter run backwards – indicating that we are supplying electricity to the national grid (and getting paid for it by the Power Company!), rather than consuming from it.
This is a long term investment – it will probably take ten years to break even, but I’m glad that we’ve done it.
