the one downside

I have been singing the praises of solar power for a while now. So far Terry and I have found just one downside.

When we had the solar panels installed we thought it might help with the insulation of the house, and help keep the house cooler in the evening after a hot day. It turns out that the exact opposite is true. The house retains heat in the evening and doesn’t cool down as fast.

This is obviously not a big deal, and one of the points of having solar is that you can turn up the air conditioning without having to pay the power company more money.

Overall, we still know that going solar was exactly the right thing to do, and we’re delighted to have done so.
