Nice setup Doug. Are you sending surplus energy to the grid after charging the Volt car? Wow, living the dream. Good work if you can get it. Is your house all electric? Thanks for the tour

Yes, it's grid tied and I sell energy back to TVA, they charge 10 cents a KWH, and pay me 22, I get a check for about $800 a year. The house is all electric except we have a propane range. I use wood heat to back up solar space heat, it also heats domestic water.

if you think brussel sprouts are yummy, you should try any other food. And this tiny ad:
