My next door neighbour has gone all electric: solar panels on the roof, Tesla car and even an electric boat. Because of the nose bleedingly high electricity (or hydro, as we call it) rates in Ontario he claims to be ahead and is even selling power into the grid occasionally.

I usually have for my breakfast different sandwiches, fruits or pan fried eggs with bacon/tomatoes/sausages :D And coffee of course! :D

I'm missing something. If the electricity rates are quite high, why would it be desirable to use devices that consume electricity? Obviously I've gone down the wrong track in my thinking . . . .

If he's making his own juice running the electrical appliances is in essence "free".

Right, now I get the point. However, I do wonder exactly how much it costs to purchase and install solar panels/buy a Tesla/buy an electric boat? One wonders how the dollars and cents add up when spending is equal to or exceeded by saving.

Good question Gary. I haven't asked him how much the panels cost or what he thinks the payback period is to the extent it ever pays back. As for the Tesla and the boat, the car costs about $100k and the boat about $50k. Go figure! Seems to have the attributes of an AD. :mrgreen:
