    If both people work how can you do things before 4pm? I guess you could start everything before you leave before work.
    Glad that I went solar, the power that I generated during the day and got credit for I can run the AC in the evening and cash in on it.

    Guess they have to extract that pound of flesh when most use the power . I have a 6 kw solar system that went on line in 2006 . guess my rebate will be lower next year . Wind doesn't care about time of day , maybe more of that type of power should be considered rather than the large solar farms currently being installed . Got to be something like the tax incentives are better for solar . Most of the wind turbine tech seems to be from outside the USA where solar is at least partially built in the USA . Another double edged sword for the consumer !

    I'm thinking about backup batteries for when the sun goes down.
    I called a local solar company and they said that they only have the batteries for their system but are working on other systems.

    Makes me happy noone is generally home during those times. Or, rather, awake and at home during those times.

    I have a 6.5 kw system on my house with a powerwall in the garage. The powerwall is good for 14kwh. I can power the house and charge the powerwall during the day and run off the battery all night. I would never change a thing about it or have another system without a backup battery.

    My daughter sent me a SDGE email citing a recent rebate for energy efficient A/C-heating systems. Since I got a new A/C-heater recently I clicked in, got the information and then clicked into the instructions to apply and got a blank page. Tried twice and got the same thing. Called the "Customer Service" number and after going through several prerecorded "blah, blahs" several times I then got through to a recording that said "We are experiencing a larger than..etc......hang on and you will be connected in 30 mins to a live person or submit an email." I then sent an email for instructions on how to qualify for the rebate. That was a week ago and no reply. Why do I have a feeling that they really don't want to give me a rebate. :emoji_confused:

    Had something similar happen to me. When they were doing rebates for energy efficient windows we had all of the windows changed out. I sent in the paper work and hadn't received any confirmation back. When I called them about it they said that I didn't send a header sheet. I said that I would send it but they told me that the money was used up.
    We just had a new heating and ac unit installed because of R-22 not being available in the future. I was told that there wasn't a rebate, I would be interested to find out what you find out. Mine was installed at the end of last year. Thanks.
