I stopped to use "Puro-Pan Gasu"(プロパンガス) (liquid gas) for cooking and heating water in my house last Saturday. Instead, now my family have used "IH, induction heating" cooking ware and "Eco-Kyuto"(エコキュート) that is name of a product that heats water by using electricity at lower price during midnight. People in Japan call it "All -Denka"(オール電化).

And next year, we will have solar power generation system on our house's roof.

Off course, it costs a lot of money, but I have decided the replacement from some reason.

There are concerns that payment for using electricity will rise in near future because electric power companies in Japan have suspended  their operations of nuclear power stations since the Fukushima accidents. But, I am looking forward to seeing how much money we will get from the solar system.

We have solar panels on our house and they are fantastic. We always make more electricity than we use, so we sell it back to the electricity company and make some money! Some months we will make over 10,000 yen.
I agree that they are expensive initially, but they are great for the environment and in the end they will pay themselves off.

Thank you for posting a comment about solar panels. In fact, I have worried about you condition because you have stopped posting an article on your blog for more than 3 months. I am really glad to see your comment.

I think that there is a special reason that let you suspend to write your blog. I hope you restart your blog in near future.
