Back in 2003, we self installed 12 solar panels on our garage roof. The City of Pasadena solar rebating us 2/3rds of the cost. This was something that we couldn’t pass up! They made solar affordable to common resident. By producing our own green power, it was one more step in making the Urban Homestead more self- sufficient.
With our energy use being at 6.5 KWH a day, the solar panels are able to produce nearly 3/4 of our energy for the year. For the other 1/4, we opted to pay the few extra cents for the city’s green power program. The Urban Homestead’s energy source is either sun or wind – both renewable.
