I'm sorry to hear about your health. I hope you are able to fight through it. Happy Belated Birthday! Friends started calling me Bevner while tapping beer at the rodeo 18 years ago. It's a combo of my first name and part of my last name.

Many happy returns of the day CocoPaz. Remember, things get better with age so you are only nearing perfection.

I've had to go off the drugs for prevent a recurrence. The side effects of it are just out of sight. It is as my husband says, like menopause on steroids - and more. I am the only member of my family to have any type of cancer, and the drug is not worth the side effects. The oncologist said the risk is not worth the nastiness that I am experiencing, so I am off it. It will take about 2 months to get rid of the hot flashes, the night sweats and all the rest of the shit. I can hardly wait. At 71, I am too too old to worry about wanting to live another 30 years. Have a good weekend. Mary.

Hi, thank you. Buds would be nice. I enjoy posting current prices as I have a longish work week commute and travel by 5 stations M-F. Thanks again

Cancer is a bitch. I'm winning my fight too.

Correction net cost should be $38,500.

(the rest of the answer) ...installation. Income from the FIT program for the first install was: 2011 - $5,727 2012 - $6,052 2013 - $6,176 2014 - $4,761 (through July) The 2010 system cost $55,000, but the income tax credit was $16,500 so the net cost was $39,500. Projected payback will be in seven years. We installed a second set of forty solar panels in 2012 and enrolled them in another fifteen year FIT program. The 2012 FIT program for the second install pays 30% less than the first, but the installed solar panel price had also decreased 30%. The success of the solar program is dependent on the electric company supplier. We were fortunate to have PGE’s encouragement on how to develop both our roof top solar panel generation systems. We used the same contractor, RS Energy, LLC, to design and install both systems.

I hope this answer to your question is helpful. Our solar install: We have a 3500 square foot house in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, which is in northwest Oregon. The majority of our rain falls in the winter with at least one snow fall each winter. The summers are dry. There are very few days of temperatures over 100 degrees. Our first solar install was forty panels manufactured by Solar World in Hillsboro, Oregon. They were installed in the fall of 2010. They were implemented as part of a pilot photovoltaic program called FIT (Feed In Tariff). FIT is a program managed by the Oregon Public Utilities Commission. This involved signing a contract with Portland General Electric (PGE), our electrical supplier. This contract is for 15 years during which PGE will buy our entire solar production. After that period of time, the production will be handled in a net metering program with PGE. The money we receive now from PGE is intended to offset the solar panel purchase and installatio
