That's awesome . You still have a credit.. unreal.. we are hoping for that ramp up in daylight to save our butts in Febs bill but I think we'll owe again.

by Joeski1  Yesterday

wow! I got it.. that's why you referenced the heat wire @ the panels base.. our avalanche (when we get the big rush) hits the lower panels.. then lands on the flower beds.. no wonder you want to get rid of it.. you get that damage because it's likely freezing into ice and getting compacted.. by all means with that much snow.. controlled in any matter is better than not.. good luck! I still like the blower best but if that white stuff is frozen,, that bum rake may be the only route! I think you unequivocally nailed the biggest operational "con" from the panels..sorry..

Jim..my panels are not accessible from the ground to clear.. but I like the blower idea best.. I wait for the avalanche .. we are 100% clear this day..got 15 yesterday.. solar post on gb today..pump, pump,pump! Joe

Hey jim... yeah.. lucky me.. I get feedback from a guy who's CAPITAL letter lock is stick huh?? that was w/regard's to a fracking/earthquake comment sir capital letters made.. real genius out there.. utter genius.. when ya can't stand what they do with your cash anymore.. that's what gets me.. when Bp dump[s oil in the gulf.. I yell @ myself "why do I give them my money? When the pipe leaks methane that I have to pay for.. I say "why do i give them my cash?? it always gets down to using less of the product or replacing what one uses with what one can make.. we burned 1150 and pushed 250 back on the pile.. so this month the power bill is short of $114.. now for the gas.. but we had it @ 73 (4) even... keeping garage @ 62* w/electric supplemental.. heat pump runs over 34^ so gas use should be down somewhat... gerat .. 2 feet fo snow.. again you may get the worst with wind/accumulation.. look out!! Make sure the kat's accounted for and batten down the hatches..

Gb definitely does not like T or the article posts..it jibes with their "all is peachy keen in fossilfuelsville, our industry is above reproach" slant. J1

that loss to the Lambo might have something to do with this 'small print' I lifted from the Tesla site

by Joeski1  Jan 22, 2015

** The P85D top speed is currently electronically-limited to 130 mph. In the coming months, we will be able to upgrade the car free of charge to enable a 155 mph top speed. This free update will be available for the lifetime of the car (not limited to the first owner). Additionally, an over-the-air firmware upgrade to the power electronics will improve P85D performance at high speed above what anyone outside Tesla has experienced to date. In other words, the car will be better than you experienced. This free upgrade will be rolled out in the next few months, once full validation is complete.

here's the rub jim.. a tesla is NOT a lambo... or a porsche or a corvette.. really.. it should be running against Bentley's.. the fact that it can even slightly hold it own against one of the fastest ICE's made is the msot amazing thing out there.. not that the Lambo won.. who'd thought it would lose?? It goes like 220 MPH right? Ev's will do it soon buddy... 5 years or less..
