We Didn’t Know Our Solar Home Was Haunted Until We Got a Text from the Ghost

This Probably True Solar Story is the first haunted solar house story ever told... So... we're making pop-culture history! I think... If you find another one, let me know. 

As for the story, it's about a family that's moved into an updated solar home that seems to be haunted by a ghost with an unfulfilled environmental mission. But will that mission help the family ... or hurt them?

This episode is fairly tame in the scary story department. There are a couple of bad words. So... listen to it first before sharing it with any little ones.

True solar takeaways:

  • Clean your solar panels regularly or a ghost might remind you
  • You can make your solar home net zero--producing more solar energy than your home uses every year
  • Lower your hot water heater's temperature to 120 degrees Fahrenheit, 49 degrees Celcius. 
  • Vampire loads, (TVs, stereos, cable boxes, and other appliances on standby mode) suck energy and waste money. Get smart plugs and power strips.
  • LED lightbulbs save money now. Don't wait until your old ones burn out.  
  • Solar homes have a higher resale value.
