In 2019 I installed 2 Mini-split Heat Pumps in my condo in South Burlington, and while my gas bill plummeted, my electric bill went up as expected. Of course, living in a condo means I can’t have solar energy, but I found the good folks at AllEarth who connected me with a family in Charlotte who had solar in their backyard, and they were able to sell some of their excess energy to me. In fact, it started off at about a 10% discount, then when the rates went up last year, it was even more! I love saving money as much as doing good for the environment!
