Steve Browne: Solar Power - The Bottom Line

KSAT 12 Meteorologist Steve Browne and the Big Zero

SAN ANTONIO - Solar Update...July 11, 2010

My June 2010 electric bill has arrived. Last June (2009) is was $191.00.

This June (2010) it is $14.25.

I used zero electricity from the grid. The charges came from "Service Availability" - $8.25 and "Windtricity" - $6.00. That's a voluntary fee to support wind farms. Woo Woo!

It's an apples-to-apples comparison since I was out on vacation for a week last June, too.

The video was made when Josh The Electrician hooked me up in April.
