Re: [APD] Sunlight in a tube - Solar Power

Timing was right. I had some excess $$ (read this as I had some money to burn and couldn't justify some things) and thought that I might want to reduce my electric bill. We over-engineered the panels intentionally so we could add a hot tub. Our electric bill went from over $100 a month to about $230 for the first year. That includes the hot tub that is heated 24x7 and a lot more liberal use of the air conditioning. The hot tub doesn't help the fish, but the A/C certainly keeps the tank from overheating in the summer when it's 100+ outside.

Seriously, that is one impressive project you have there.
