Solar Panels On Our House

The panels on the left roof will generate electricity and feed into the NSTAR grid. On the far right, those panels generate hot water. My last solar hot water system lasted 30 years.

The house is painted with a linseed oil based paint. Every 7-10 years, it will need a reapplication of clear linseed oil. The color does not need to be reapplied. This keeps the wood in good condition and is less expensive than buying and reapplying paint.

Linseed oil is indeed a magical product that we've gotten away from using. It totally protects finished wood surfaces from the sun, especially, and the other elements.

Great for making non-skid surfaces on almost any material. And it's made from an agricultural product - flax seed.

How does one go about getting solar panels? Is it expensive to begin? I'd love to research that and be a real green family. Sounds wonderful for you and yours.
