I have gone off the grid.
"But, Rich, you've been off the grid for months.. we never see you anymore."
No, no, no.. I mean OFF. THE. GRID.
Well, at least during the day. My solar panels are installed, and churning. Just went outside as the sun crested over the horizon and the meter went from flying forward to slowing, slowing, stopping, then spinning back the other way.
I'm producing, people! And with 2 refridgerators, 4 computers, a Wii, two fishtanks, 2 ponds, electric water heater, TV's and TiVos on standby sucking up juice anyway and a dozen other things on...
I can't wait to get my next electric bill.
