These homeowners received a shock when they moved to Tucson from California and were suddenly faced with electricity bills much larger tahn their previous $60.00 a month.  They decided they needed to look for ways to reduce their electricity bill and so "We started reviewing solar providers and systems in March, a couple of weeks after we moved into the house.  We actually signed the lease agreement on May 1.  TFS had the panels installed and the final City inspection completed on July 10." Solar is just the first step for this family.  They use their data monitoring system,  which records how much electricity they produce and also how much they consume everyday.  With this tool they are looking for other way to reduce their electricity usage: they learned that the pool pump was one of the largest users of electricity and so they are now reviewing purchasing an new pump.  In addition, this home uses CFL and LED lights to reduce electricity consumption.
