Solar is a great way to “lock in” a set electricity rate for decades. Unlike National Grid, the sun doesn’t change its rates a few times a year! In the case of this Foster, Rhode Island homeowner, the rate has gone down from 19 cents per kilowatt-hour from the electric company to 10 cents with solar. And as electric company rates rise over time, that 10 cents will look even better!
