We entered the SunRun Holiday Lights Contest!



Yesterday we entered the Holiday Lights Contest sponsored by our solar lease provider, SunRun. We love that we showcase our clean energy with our visible-from-the-street solar panels on our roof by day and power our holiday light display on the fro
nt lawn with solar energy by night. SunRun makes us very happy solar energy producers and consumers!

Our decision to go solar also fits well with community norms here in Mar Vista.

Wish us luck because we would love to win! Robert mentioned just last night how he would love to buy some LED Christmas lights for our home. Turns out, LED lights are part of all the prize packages:
  • 1st: $100 Amazon gift card and LED holiday lights
  • 2nd: $75 Amazon gift card and LED holiday lights
  • 3rd: $50 Amazon gift card and LED holiday lights
I guess it was a good thing I figured out how to make decorating the outside of the house fibro-friendly with "low altitude" holiday decorations.

You can read more about our solar journey--from signing up for a solar lease, having the solar panels installed on our home, to watching the meter spin backwards--by clicking here, here and here.

I'm going to try to take pictures at dusk tomorrow so I can get the solar panels in the frame as well for "extra credit"...




P.S. Just remembered that Snoopy enters a holiday lights contest in A Charlie Brown Christmas. Got a chuckle from that! I think it's time to break out the Christmas DVDs and start watching all those holiday favorites with my dogs and cats. (Sorry Woodstock, no birds in the house here.)

ADDENDUM:


Here is a picture that gets the panels in the frame too:
