Electric to Site & House
Our electricity is provided by Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative (NOVEC) and is above ground. We're about 1/4 mile off the state road, and NOVEC is obligated to clear a swath and it has to be 30 FEET WIDE! We can use the driveway for some of that width part of the way, but otherwise, we plan on enough firewood for the next two years...kinds sucks though. We didn't want to lose that many trees.
We'd love to go solar, but can't afford it just yet. Maybe another 5-10 years.
