The Trick played by Utility Companies
Utility companies like to be the only game in town. They foster intergenerational dependency on their grid and fossil fuel resources which they charge top dollar for and continually escalate the price of. We are made to think that there is no other way and we have no other choice but to shell out hundreds or sometimes thousands of dollars per month to obtain access to their energy supply, without ever owning a piece of the power station that generates all this energy. And these utility companies produce outages that often leave thousands or even millions without power at a time. For example, between 2008 and 2017, over 11.5 million homes were affected by power outages in the state of Texas alone, forcing homeowners to endure more than 1,600 power cuts.
Solar Energy: The Oldest New Alternative
The Sun has been around since the dawn of time. In fact time itself is measured in large part by the speed at which light from the sun passes across space. Yet until 65 years ago, this virtually infinite power was all but elusive to us. Now with the recent technological advancements of solar panels, inverters, and battery backup systems, not only is harnessing energy from the sun no longer a dream of the ancients, but the best method we have today to produce electricity in a cost-efficient and sustainable way.
When you live in sunny states like Texas, California, or Florida, you have enormous amounts of solar energy to utilize. In fact, even utility companies themselves are jumping aboard the solar bandwagon and trying to produce it for you in order to keep you writing checks to them for the rest of your life. The good news is that you don’t have to get solar energy from them. You can produce your own solar and own the panels that produce it too!
