Interesting. Maybe my calculations were wrong or based of old pricing. That said, I still run into the problem that very little of my house/property gets a whole lot of sunlight due to me living in a fairly wooded area, so I'd have to chop down a whole bunch of trees for solar to work for me at all, and I like the trees so I probably won't be doing that. I am however thinking about installing individual electric heaters in each room in my house so that I'm not heating the whole house to 72F. Doesn't make a whole lot of sense to keep the living room, kitchen, dining room, play room and my office at the same temperature as the rest of the house when we're in bed sleeping. If they had individual heaters I could just set a programmable thermostat to entirely shut off the heat in those rooms during the night hours. I've already replaced my old hot water tank with a tankless unit, which first of all is awesome - I can take a nine hour shower if I want to and not run out of hot water, and second has saved me about $15 a month, which puts my break even point at about 3 1/2 years. Of course I have trouble bringing myself to replace old appliances with new. Sure, the new is a lot more efficient, but also seems a hell of a lot less reliable. I had bought a used frigidaire fridge several years back that was manufactured in the mid 80s, and while it wasn't very energy efficient, I never had problems with it. I replaced it with a fancy Samsung unit (which wasn't cheap!) two years ago, and I've had to get the thing repaired FOUR times already. All covered under warranty, but still, new appliances seem to be shit quality - or maybe just too complicated for their own good. I don't know. I'm not very well versed in celebrities I guess. These celebrities keep dying and I'm always like "Who?".
