Getting Closer

I met with Charlie to discuss the quote. He was pushing hard to keep the subs on his part of the contract, dropping the markup/margin on those items. We left some things off of the project on my end, so the price right now is $102k. I'm thinking that's close, but...I'll be thinking this over carefully.

I've done the research on solar hot water and it looks like we can get the parts for $2000, I'm waiting on a cost to install from Charlie. While I was checking that out, I found a 3KW PV system for $17,000. I think that would cover about half my yearly energy needs. While it would probably take 30 years to pay off, the interesting thing is that the last time I priced these systems out, they were a couple thousand dollars more expensive.
