With electric bills soaring to over $700 a month in the hot San Joaquin Valley summer, we switched to solar several years ago. Dust deposits cut back on their efficiency by about 13% according to my husband who watches the bill carefully. So early in the morning about every six weeks he climbs up on the roof.He scrubs the solar panels down with a long brush, the hose and a long squeegee. Our bill was about $20 the first YEAR and about $115 lastYEAR, and you know the rates did not go down.I want to give a shout up to him for taking such good care of things at our home. Thanks VP. You earned some well deserved R & R.What would you like to do? I know. Pick up another long stick, and play in the water.
