I think I am at or better than breakeven, but PG&E California with Air
Conditioning is the place for that to happen.


For the California calculator, zip defaults to an E-1 "straight" rate.  To
get Time of Use, which is beneficial for me, you have to select by city,
for some reason.


I was talking to an energy consultant who says the biggest battle is
getting below a 10 year payoff.  People don't expect to stay in the same
house for 10 years, and they don't expect a new buyer to value the PV, so
they don't want to commit to anything that takes longer than 10 years to
pay off.  I am currently hitting that rate in the summertime, but not all
year.  

I just wanted a 20 year loan payment to be covered, and it is.
