This 30-second video posted to YouTube and shows a home’s electric meter running backwards after installing solar panels.
The meter runs backwards because the home is putting more power into the electric grid than it is taking out for itself.
With energy costs expected to rise sharply this winter and the costs of “going green” coming down, it may make sense to evaluate whether solar panels are a good fit for your home.
There’s still that up-front cost, but then there’s the thrill of watching that meter run backwards. Each clockwise tick is lowering your monthly energy bill and could possibly even eliminate it.
It’s worth watching those 30 seconds again.
