Did you know that GRU currently offers a one-time rebate for installing solar panels. GRU also pays for excess energy the solar panels produce!

This system is in place but a new system is proposed. The new system would not limit the amount of energy GRU would purchase.       

Under the proposed system, John Crider, GRU utilities analyst says GRU would pledge to buy all solar energy produced by households and businesses for 26 cents per kilowatt hour.

Question: how much are you paying right now per kilowatt hour?


About Michael Levin

Michael loves sharing what he's learned about organic lifestyles like living off the grid and bicycle commuting. He calls it "lifestyle entrepreneurship". He's into organic gardening, mindful living, and realizes that we only have this life and each other. His favorite quote is "The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both." (James A. Michener)
