Saturday 1383 – 25.01.2014
Today I made the final decision about 2 things that I have wanted for a very long time.
One is about helping the planet ( and me too of course! ) and the other is going to give me a bit of luxury in my advancing years 🙂 .
I am about to join the solar energy revolution and my roof will soon look like the roof above.
I am ridiculously excited about this as it’s something I have wanted to do for a very, very long time. ( can you sense me jumping up and down!) In fact since I first became involved with the environmental movement back in the late 80’s, early 90’s though I only seriously considered it when I first bought this house in 2009 but the price was still very prohibitive then.
At the time I was very disappointed and thought I would never get the opportunity to produce my own electricity but the price has dropped dramatically, I’ve paid off my mortgage and the dream is about to become a reality.
Can you just imagine producing your own electricity and exporting the excess to the National Grid. I think I may be about to spend hours watching my meter go round! It’s an environmentalist’s dream and I am putting my money where my mouth is, so to speak..
( Well you didn’t think from the title that I was going to write about the religious sort of Light did you ? 😉 )
The second little dream that’s about to come true is underfloor heating in my big north-facing kitchen which is usually chilly.
I always have cold feet.. well from about Sept to April.. and have dreamt about having a lovely warm floor to rest my little feet on and it’s going to happen.
Of course the 2 go together quite well because underfloor heating uses electricity much more slowly than other forms of heating.
Happy, Happy Days
Have you had any long-held dreams come true lately?
As ever I welcome your thoughts .
