Going Solar - The Second Year

As I begin the second year of solar ownership, shown below is a table with a summary of my HEL payments, as well as payments to my electric company, JCP&L.  Also shown as credits, are the amounts I receive from the sale of the SREC’s generated from the solar array.  As before, this post will be updated periodically to reflect these payments and credits as they happen.  Note that thus far, the solar array has required absolutely zero maintenance.

As before, I have listed how fast I am accumulating solar renewable energy certificates (SREC’s; 1 SREC for every 1000 kWh’s generated), which are listed in the table below.
