For this family, installing  a photovoltaic solar electric system was the right thing to do.  Their goal in installing the system was to reduce their fossil fuel dependence in order to preserve resources for the next generation.  According to these homeowners, the best thing about their new solar system is its "hot, hot, hot and it's all from the sun."  These El Encanto residents, practice what they preach in other ways by also employing solar hot water, rainwater harvesting and by driving a hybrid car.
