Let the sun shine

Look what landed on our roof on Saturday

Not the best photo I know, we have a high set house so it's a bit hard to get a good photo. There are eight more panels around the other side of the roof, making it a 3.04 Kw solar system.
Whilst I'm very happy to have solar power and all the positive environmental implications it brings. Apparently this system should zero out our electricity bill, not sure about solar credits yet. I'm really not happy about the added debt we have just incurred having this system installed. In the end I felt like I had little choice in the matter and now feel very much out of control of our finances.

To make matters worse, I finally got round to having my car serviced today. It cost a fortune as it was a major service and it needed some other work done. Boy don't they see you coming!
Oh well, the panels are here to stay. I'm going to pop over to Gavin's blog and read all his posts about solar energy, he's got some great info there.
Stupid paragraphs are all merging again :(
Sorry to moan.....

I think I read you Lisa. The panels will make a world of difference to the power bill but it's a horrid feeling re finances. I've been wanting to put on solar panels but the cost has held me back.

Yes you read right Rose. The cost is the problem.

It's a bit of a messy post, just having a bit of a moan really.
