Electricity. This is reckoned per household, not per person. We cook on an electric stove. According to our solar meter, we produced 4437 kWh since theÂ system was turned on, and 581 kWh this last month (you can follow our solar harvest liveÂ here). And most heavy electrical Â equipment has been turned off: the growing lights and heat mat and the heat lamps for our chicks. Result: we owed NStar nothing. How much we consumed is a mystery: our NSTAR bill will not say. All we know is that we producedÂ 581 kWh and they rebated us (yes, paid us) $26, but who knows at what rate! I’m going to guess here:
