Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We're on the local "Green Power" plan, which uses utility company solar panels to provide electricity via the regular power lines. When the program was introduced, it was estimated that it would add about $8 to the monthly charge for domestic customers.

The regular electricity rate is high right now due to the problems in Texas last winter (frozen natural gas lines that drove the price up all over the country) that the utility company is still paying off. As a result, the Green Power rate is lower now than the regular rate, because the solar panels are cheaper overall than the coal+gas that provides most of the conventional power.

So that is good.
