I'm buying my own solar system

Did you get free shipping?

 

Yes.

 

I've got some details about the system written down somewhere around the house that I'd like to share with everyone. But I haven't gotten any sleep yet so I'm off to bed.

 

Off the top of my head, I do remember that it's supposed to put out 107% of the amount of power that we currently use.

 

And it's got panels which provide shade. I'm not sure if I fully understood the functionality but I gather that it's something like the function of the shadow squares on Larry Niven's Ringworld.

I suddenly read this as 'I'm burying my own solar system' and got much more interested


   Give it a while, you’ll see it.

     I just realized that Archer was talking about a Solar power system for his house and not some game mechanics thing.   In the words of Emily Littela   Oh, that’s very different....Never mind.

I just thought someone conned him into buying some star in the constellation of Orion.

 

Those Nigerian princes need a new gimmick after all.

After a lot of COVID delays, trials, and tribulations (including a "one day install" which lasted 7 days), my solar system has been installed and has been up and running for a partial month. 

 

Our electric bill was a negative $42 and some odd cents. And that billing period included a week when the system was supposed to be installed and running but wasn't.

 

If the system had been up and running for the whole month, I'd estimate that our electric bill would have been well in excess of a negative $100. That's roughly what we'd been led to believe that it would be...but that was one of those claims which my wife swallowed without skepticism but which I was unable to.

Ditto. I had never heard of this system under this name and assumed the title was literal and a joke.

 

The 21st Century is really leaving me behind. :(
