Clean Energy Option

Hi Neighbors,

Has anyone else received the Clean Energy Option mailer? I am curious if others have switched and if so what your thoughts are? Any issues to date? Is it a huge price increase? I’d really like to do this to support Clean Energy but don’t feel like I know enough about the program.

Buying Real Estate with Solar Panels

Just met with a sales rep from SolarCity, and I’m thinking over the option of going solar with their panels installed on my roof. However, they require a minimum 20 year agreement, and I am very unlikely to remain in this rowhouse that long. Curious what opinions people have on buying a house with existing solar panels installed. Is that a plus? A minus? No big deal?

I’d also welcome any feedback anyone has who has previously worked with SolarCity.

HELP! Pepco is out of control

Dear Popville,

Our Pepco bill for February is $356, this is about $80 more than in January which was already extremely high for our two bedroom one bath condo. The bill states that our usage is about $270 (for ‘New electric supply charges-SOS Provider) which is approximately the same as last month’s bill (and already outrageous), however this month there is an added $85 charge (for ‘New electric distribution charges-Pepco’) which was not there before. We also have a Nest thermostat which is supposed to decrease our energy use, but our bill is going up every month significantly. Every bill states that it is an actual reading, but it doesn’t seem right either. We also went on Pepco’s website and realized that the chart stating what we’ve paid over the last four months (we moved here in November) does not match up to what our bill was (see attached screenshots). I don’t know what to do at this point, but I do know that $356 is way too much to pay for a 2 bedroom condo. Not to mention that our house has never been above 64 degrees this winter in an effort to minimize the bill. Do you know what this ‘New electric distribution charge’ is or if there is any action we can take to get our bill lowered to a reasonable price? Are there any other competitive providers who do not go through Pepco, or are they the only choice? Any advice is welcome!

Wind power provider?

Hey PoP forum—
I’ve been sourcing my electricity from Clean Currents for the last year or so, but earlier this month they went out of business. I’d like to transfer my business to a new alternative provider but am not sure who to go with.

Do you use a wind/solar energy provider? If so, which one do you use and do you like them?
