Bob the Builder says "WOW!"

Bob the Builder says WOW ! . . . .this Green thing is really cool!  We are so excited and are anticipating our next DTE utility bill.  What, who wants one of those?  Well our last 4 months have been negative numbers and as a result DTE owes us money.  Our recently enlarged solar panel array is really doing the job.  We enlarged the system to 6 kilo watts and even with air conditioning on through the summer we are running negative utility bills. 

Plus…….we received a 30% federal tax credit towards the cost and a huge rebate from DTE so in the end we paid only about 40% of the cost of the solar panels.  And with the DTE Solar Currents program they will pay us 11 cents per kilo watt hour that we generate for the next 20 years! 

Pretty cool to have a positive return on investment toward our utilities!  Call us if you would like to know more.

And, we have a new Timber Frame home going up west of Saline with a tentative Timber Frame Raising the last week of September 2010.  Contact us if you'd like additional information or watch our website for updated details.
