Today the Baudains' went solar. We had a 2.8 kw system installed on the roof. It looks amazing and is already generating power even though it has been cloudy all day. This is another big step to making our place a sustainable home in the suburbs. We have a little room for expansion which we hope to do once we add an alfresco to the backyard. I am sure that this step will help us become even more aware of our power usage,we already turn off lights and don't do standby but I am sure there are many more ways we can improve our power consumption. Will let you know how the first power bill goes.
