Because of the installation of solar photovoltaic panels, our carbon offset has totaled: 4,262 pounds which is the equivalent to planting 53 Blue Spruce Evergreen trees. And this carbon offset is just so far — since mid-February this year!
(Below are our actual “before and after” Hawaii Electric Company “HECo” bills.
January 2013: $302.97, March 2013: $17.00 ($17 is the base cost for a connection to HECo). HOO HOO!
Last month we took the leap to “get off the grid” and had a photovoltaic solar system installed, which means we now have the ability to harvest all our energy from the sun! WOO HOO!!!
SO, the next time you’re on your computer or taking a shower or doing a load of laundry at Hale ‘Nalo, you can ENJOY the fact that you’re using only the sun’s energy!
Mahalo for your support!
A hui hou (“until we meet again”) from Hale ‘Nalo!
