Well the bill came and it was good news all around. The methane bill came to 268 considering how cold it has been near miraculous. I used 278 kw hours so still have a credit of 74 bucks. That should get me through the rest of the winter without paying for electricity. Our trip to the southlands helped in late Jan. with electric consumption. Panels showed minimal melting today some minor improvement but it was never out of the twentys today.

Panels here are still about 1/3 clear some progress since yesterday but not much temps are still in the 20s but full sun. More snow is predicted for tomorrow night and Monday morning but only 3-5 inches as of last night's prognostication. We may see the feb bill today or not depending on US Mail.

Too true, Joeski1. Only anti-environmental, pro-fossil fuel articles (including opinion pieces) are allowed on this site. Have a good one!

I crunch numbers because there is a part of me that is still suspicious that going off fossil fuels just won't work, especially here. We had a blizzard that dumped 87 cm/34 in of snow on the 15/16th blown about by winds right here reaching 126 km/78 mph, for drifts across the road at my driveway that were 22 ft/7 meters high. We were stuck at the house for 6 days...but its 5F (feels like -11F) outside and 72 inside just from my solar air heater alone, and the dishwasher is running on hot water from the solar hot water panels on the roof..so I'm even closer to being convinced that I could go the last 13% and be off fossil completely.

I may have paid too much for my 3kW system. I bought it in late Nov, '14 and last week another salesman said I could have gotten 7kWh from him for the same price. So far, I am happy. In six days, I have generated 100 kWh, sent ~ 60 to the electric co. and they sent ~81 back at night. Won't know what this means until I get a few bills. W.

I think I got it figured out enough to make an attempt to fix the snow problems but it would be nice to have SolarCity approve the attempt especially since I will be paying for it. I do try to be safe and it makes me move real slow. I am 65 so I am slowing down some. Cool I see warren its is A Jeep thing went solar. Maybe we were good influence on him.

I got my new Solar PV system cranking on Fri. afternoon, naturally it was cloudy. This week has been good, nice clear days. Warren

I am kind of disappointed at customer service at Solarcity I thought that I would be speaking to an engineer about my problems and they did not call me back even to confirm that they got my pictures. I still have about 70% of the panels obscured even though I worked a couple more hours. It is just unsafe to do any more. I had to drop the roof rake once as it almost pulled me off the ladder. It was up to 34F today and there was some melt. At least I can see that I have removed some of the snow.
