There’s finally some good news emerging out of the heated debate around net-metering. In California, a previously controversial bill, AB327, introduced earlier this year to reform residential electricity rates, was amended to turn earlier critics from the solar industry into supporters.
In recent years, companies have made great strides in offering third-party financing to bring solar and energy efficiency to residential consumers with little or no money down. What if they paid you to put solar on your roof?
On this Independence Day, we at ClearlyEnergy are of course thinking of energy independence – not the national kind, with debates about fracking and oil prices – the consumer kind: independence from your electricity bill! In the heat of summer, solar power sure comes to mind as an abundant energy solution. Read on to find out if your roof and the sun can contribute to freedom from your utility.
It’s finally warm outside – time to get out the old trowel and pruning gear for this spring’s landscaping…and the old checkbook for this summer’s air conditioning bills. We tend to get spoiled in April and May, where houses in most US climates need little heating or cooling and our electric bills are low. But when muggy summer months hit and our a/c causes the bill to rise again, we sit there wondering how we could save on cooling costs. Well it turns out one of the best ways to cut a/c use is something you can do with your trowel: plant a tree!
April 22 is Earth Day – a great time to do something green. If that “something” includes a move to renewable power, we’ve got you covered: In three clicks or less, ClearlyEnergy’s electric search function makes going green while saving green easy!
