The COVID Effect—How Much Did You Spend on Electricity?

It’s been a full year since the pandemic started, and you’ve probably spent more time at home than ever before. Some perks you may have enjoyed are trying new recipes, commuting from the bedroom to your home office, finally having time to binge watch your Netflix shows, and most importantly, spending quality time with your family. But all of these directly impact your electricity usage. How so?

We compared the electricity usage of two families in our area—and it’s surprising to see how much this year has affected our community. If your electricity bill has increased, we’d love to show you how solar can benefit your family. If you currently own solar, adding additional solar panels may help offset the unexpected increase. 

Check out this video to see how to compare your usage.
