MINI-E #250 Soon to be Charging on Solar Electric!

After about 4 months of applications, permits and weather delays, my solar electric system if finally being installed. I should be charging on sunlight by Monday. This system should generate enough electric to charge the MINI-E and about 80% of my entire homes usage. I'll post some pictures once the system is installed and operational.  Have a Happy Easter everyone!   


  1. Congratulations, you made a wise decision. In a few years it will pay for itself and the rest is pure profit

  2. Awesome! You are living the future my friend

  3. You are going to love your system. I have had a 7kwh for the past 10 years now and it was the best thing I did for my home.

  4. Thats Great Tom, Congratulations on your Solar system

  5. Thanks Robert. I always wanted to go solar, but having the car to charge pushed me over the edge. Plus, I wanted to get the State & Federal rebates before the programs all get slashed. It's up and running now, really cool. I'm generating a little more electric than I'm using so far, but the central A/C isn't running yet...

  6. Tom,

    Great looking install. Love the all black sunpower panels and you have the right roof for them. Can wait to see the finished pics.

    You just installed the cheapest gas station on the east coast. The fact that it makes power for your home as well, it just does not get any better.

    You walk the walk!
