How do you pay so little for panels? How big is your system and when did you get it 👀


foodcoma85 t1_j9edkaf wrote

7 panels through Trinity Solar. The whole system I think was somewhere around 17k. It's gonna be 42.98 for 300 months (25 years), but given the 3600 I put down I should pay it off long before then. The system was actually installed 1 year ago today.


ryzku t1_j9edp2y wrote

I’ve got 18 panels and it’s running me 30,640$ I’m only producing like 25kilowats on good days too. Same thing 300 months but I’m paying 97$ I wonder all the time if it was the right move


foodcoma85 t1_j9edzl9 wrote

I think for sure we're negating the impact of this price hike, so there's that


ryzku t1_j9ee3px wrote

I supposed although my last electric bill was 133+ the 97 I suppose it could be a lot worse I got some phone calls to make in a couple hours I think I’m gonna try and get a cheaper price instead of the 24cents Eversource is charging.

I switched in December so what was a $240 bill went down to $175 this month.

I’m in a weird situation, the solar company I went with (posigen) I don’t recommend, said that our output would cover out electric bill. According to their company, our panels are producing the numbers they say, but according to UI, they argue not. They keep pointing the finger at each other. It sucks.

TheSpacePopeIX t1_j9hsfwp wrote

That seems high for a heat pump. Have you done the energy audit? It really helped us. We were around $800 last year but have got it down to $650 even with the rate increases. Energy supplier change goes into effect on the 24th.


itselectric69 t1_j9e4h8q wrote

December $475…. Hot tub and mini splits running 24/7… keep in mind half the month was at the $0.24kw/h rate half was $0.12. January 100% wood stove at $0.12kw/hr was $250. No oil consumption and I aggressively change my electrical supplier. Tired of spoon feeding Eversource CEO’s! Anyone who doesn’t change their supplier is just a big dope lol.


KindaEgotistical OP t1_j9e4vqs wrote

I didn’t even know changing the electrical supplier was a thing and I will GLADLY start doing that more

$320 and I have solar panels. 2500 square foot we heat with oil. Eversource is the bane of my existence.


KindaEgotistical OP t1_j9f07sn wrote

I’m confused why is it 320? How much energy are you using. How big are your solar panels?


bearcrevier t1_j9f82fb wrote

My solar panels are huge (98.7% offset) but the salary of Eversource’s CEO is huge-er.

KindaEgotistical OP t1_j9dpvze wrote

Wow that sounds great!


gregra193 t1_j9dqea5 wrote

Yeah. There are rates as low as $0.10/kWh available now. Short term of 7 months. Would advise switching to another provider or back to standard offer during month 5 to be safe.

Are you on alternative supply?


KindaEgotistical OP t1_j9dqik3 wrote

No I mean honestly I did not even know that was an option up until today


gregra193 t1_j9dqzle wrote

There are longer terms too, just set a reminder to shop around again a full two months before the rate expires. You can always go back to standard offer too.

12.99 for 18 months should be decent. Current Eversource rate is 24.17.


KindaEgotistical OP t1_j9dr7d2 wrote

Wow this is amazing! Thanks a lot you’ve also have been a big help in general


gregra193 t1_j9drnk7 wrote

You’re welcome. Also I just saw your post about solar and definitely $0.19/kWh is too much— buyers won’t like it either.

We passed on even looking at a home that had a PPA.

Yeah at this point my resolve is to have the buyer pay for it. I don’t think I could sleep at night if I forced myself to get the house

Swede577 t1_j9eloz0 wrote

I only pay the monthly $9.62 connection charge year round. I installed solar panels 8 years ago and converted my house to all electric. Heat pump water heater, heat pumps for ac/heat, induction stove, heat pump dryer, etc.

According to my energy monitor my 1800 sqft house used 8500 kwh for all of 2022 or about 700 kwh a month. My heat pumps consumed 2500 kwh of that electricty for heating/cooling.

Where was everyone 8 years ago when panels were $1.50 a watt to install? The prices now are like $3.50+ watt. The net metering was also way better than the current one they changed to last Jan. The state was offering massive upfront cash incentives as well. The payback period was like 5.5 years. I was the only house in my neighborhood for years with panels.


MyFianceMadeMeJoin t1_j9f20yr wrote

I see so many people explaining how solar helped them in January, if I generated 15 kW a day in January that was a great day. Things are already starting to turn around and production is moving towards enough to cover a whole days worth of consumption but man, November to January are sad production months for me.


Swede577 t1_j9j8g1i wrote

I'm on an old net metering plan. All my summer production gets carried through winter and resets in April.

Do the energy audit. They’ll tell you how, and you can fix a lot of it for pretty cheap since all of the it is rebates.

How is your bill still so high? You guys got something going on eating mad electricity.


itselectric69 t1_j9zrl7f wrote

It’s my buddies. They have oil/electric heat. But idk how they’re that high. Unless they’re cranking the heat to 80°. But the electric is upstairs only, so you’d think they’d be fine.

If you don’t mind me asking this seems like a lot. How is this possible? How did it become so high?


realbusabusa t1_j9ds0in wrote

It's the electric heat that is a killer


1500mgsalt t1_j9dvlvt wrote

Yes, it’s the electric heat and not enough insulation. We do have Eversource as our supplier but I think the first two are the biggest reasons.


KindaEgotistical OP t1_j9dwmbs wrote

I’d definitely look into insulation or alternative suppliers or something to help make your home energy efficient because for two people that seems like a lot and I abused my electric heat 2 years back and had so many things running

Oh.. and another big reason is my husband refuses to turn down the heat. He said he’d rather get a second job lol.
