Fun post from Michelle of Moms Going Solar on just how easy it is to go solar and save tons of money (with some minor formatting changes):

Andrea and I started this blog to document our experience vetting photovoltaic solar leasing companies and installers, and to subsequently share our experience with the installation and interconnection. Well, and I’m being very honest, it couldn’t have been e a s i e r! My road to becoming powered by the sun was so hassle free!!

Sungevity kept me apprised of a few changes to the original plans (due to fire code, they had to downsize my system a little bit), the installation company New Energy Construction (NEC) installed my system in two days without incident and while I was on vacation (but my husband was here to coordinate with them), and the county and utility inspections happened within three weeks of installation.

From start to finish, the process took about 5-6 months, but probably less than one working day of effort on my part in that entire timeframe.

I am IMPRESSED and looking forward to sitting back and enjoying tracking the kWh produced by my system: Day 1 = 21 kWh, but we had a hazy afternoon, and Day 2 = 24 kwH! And the system actually looks good on my roof! Now to get the rest of our new house in shape: painting, adding a deck, etc… I hope it’s all as easy as installing this solar system!
