Solar Power Without Net Metering: Is It Worth It? 

The combination between solar panel installation costs, electricity rates, and market incentives offer a valuable alternative that allows you to save money on your utility bills and contribute in the fight against climate change.

Westerly Project Preview | Adding Up 2 × Into a Dutch Colonial Into a Dutch Colonial Photo by Talia Sweenor/Sweenor Builders Inc.

Its Shoreditch location even has a cool artist-in-residence. Naturally, the spaces, all designed by architecture and interiors firm Daytrip Studio, are cool, too. So when it came time for the couple to renovate their home, a run-down…
