It’s been 3 weeks since the installation of the solar water heater. In case you’re wondering, there are no photovoltaics involved, just passive solar. What was the driving force behind deciding to go solar? My insatiable drive to make the world a better place even if it’s just one solar water heater at a time. Also, I find it necessary to start integrating environmentally, socially and economically responsible choices into my life if I am to encourage other individuals to live likewise. So, there it sits upon my roof. Quietly doing its job. Sometimes I run upstairs to check the incoming pipes to see if it’s working. For the first 2 weeks, I checked religiously after showering. Now I anxiously wait for the first electric bill, post solar water heater installation.
