Lee and I thought long and hard about it, but we eventually decided it was worth the investment to add solar panels to both our house in Austin and the house at the Hermits’ Rest ranch. It’s been a long road, but we finally got them installed at the Bobcat Lair house in Austin yesterday.
The fact that we wanted it for two houses in two different counties was hard on poor Ralph, our sales consultant, but by gosh, he persisted and we have been able to move forward. He and Lee did a LOT of negotiating, philosophizing, and drinking whiskey (off the clock). I’ll miss Ralph. But then, the ranch isn’t done yet. If you’d like to read more of the story of how the installation went, I wrote it up in the Hermits’ Rest blog. Here, I’m just re-using a few of my photos.
Can We Have Some Facts, Please?
We haven’t thought of adding solar panels to any of the houses we renovated, and none of them so far have had them already installed, which got me to wondering whether having solar electric panels on a house increases or decreases your ultimate sale price. So, I looked into it. I’d like to point out before I get much further that most of the information I found was put out by solar vendors, so I am taking it with a grain of salt.Hermann says please like and share!
