This post is just to let you know that I intend to share with you our own solar project in a series of update posts which I'll intersperse with regular posts.  We’ve had solar panels installed on our roof.  I’ll be discussing the installation itself, the inspection process, and then, as I have preached here on PPP&P, the handover to “operations” in which we’ll (hopefully) generate an economic and environmental benefit for the longer term.

Here are some photos of the installation to whet your appetite.

So we will be crisply at the intersection between projects and sustainability!  Look for the first posts in very early 2020.  For now, just think about this question: what would happen if everyone ‘went solar’?  You'll find some help with this question here.

In the meantime, we wish you a very happy new year – and we leave you with this charming and optimistic view for 2020…

Dear Richard
Thanks for sharing the solar panel mounting photos at home and for the video

With the technology we currently have, is it possible for everyone to go solar?

It is clear that the path is made by walking and that concentrating on this energy source will surely lead to the invention of new ways of producing and accumulating solar energy.

I'll be watching your blog next year.

I take the opportunity to wish your year 2020 to bring you everything you wish

Happy New Year, Richard. We've been considering solar panels for a bit now. A buddy of mine recently had them installed. Maybe 2020 is the year. We'll see. Cool to see you getting it done. I'll check back for any updates.

Great initiative to install solar panels for sustainability. Thanks for sharing Richard

Richard, Dave, good initiative. I am not sure where you are based, and how many hours of sunlight you get per year. I am originally from Spain, where we get several hours of sunshine, yet the solar panels are not widespread. I am currently located in the Netherlands, known for its cloudy and miserable weather, and see solar panels all over the place. Again, great initiative.

Richard,
Keep us posted on the impact on your electric bill. Very good move

Love it, I hope to go solar very soon (Q4 2020), FPL is offering leasing options to get it done without much financial impact.

Problem is not with going solar, but sustainability of power all through out day and night.

I hope if dogs ever take over the world, and they choose a king, they don't just go by size, because I bet there are some Chihuahuas with some good ideas.
