2015, The Hottest Year on Record
Two of my neighbors now have installed solar panels on their roofs.
I’d LOVE to install solar panels. It’s a long-held dream.
Yes, even up here in Maine, solar panels will work.
What’s stopping me is that my roof is about 14 or 15 years old, and I don’t want to install solar panels and then have to take them down for a new roof.
Apparently one can get a loan that is a “wash” with current energy bills.
But, maybe, this year I’ll start the conversation with a local solar company with a great reputation.
Meanwhile, here’s an article discussing the heat generated this past year. There are some great statistics and good graphs AND a link to a “quick question and answer” document that’s interesting. (Admission: I don’t agree with the section on meat eating being a major cause of global warming. The CAFO lots are a problem, but we should be grass-feeding cows anyway. Meat is a major source of fat soluble vitamins and amino acids in forms that our body accepts.)
