In this episode, we discuss our first big financial decisions of 2018 in depth: going solar at the HiFi House! We describe the financials, how the system works, and how and why we made the decision we did (and boy was there a lot to think about!). In order to make the decision, we had to consider the following:
- what our solar company, Sun Valley Solar Solutions, could really offer.
- our power company's rate plan for customers who have solar panels.
- how much we currently pay for power and what we might pay after adding the system.
We also address a GREAT listener question about balancing a longer commute with other life priorities. As we chat through the question, we recall our episode on our spherical living and what it means to either shrink the distance you have to get to places or extend that distance to reach things that are important to you.
Finally, in Love Notes, Chris compliments Kelsey on not letting his mindset age too fast, and Kelsey appreciates Chris forging ahead on solar when she might not have done it otherwise.
