ConocoPhillips has indicated to MCGC Neighbors that they want to share information about well site construction and operations, safety, water, traffic management, air quality, infrastructure, etc. and build a cooperative relationship with Murphy Creek.

Cold and flu symptoms

Do You Have a Cold or the Flu?

January and February are prime months for the flu or a cold.  How do you tell the difference?  These points from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases may help.

Fever – Rare for a cold, common with flu.  Can exceed 102 degrees & persist 3-4 days.

Headaches, body aches – Rare for a cold, common with flu.

Fatigue – Possible with colds, but flu usually begins with exhaustion. Can last 2-3 weeks.

Sneezing, sore throat – Most frequent with a cold, but sometimes occurs with flu.

Chest discomfort, cough - Mild to moderate with colds, but can be severe with flu.

Regardless of which you have, rest and drink fluids often.  A cold will run its course.  If your symptoms are severe, contact your doctor.

Solar Panels – What Is the Impact When Buying or Selling?


Our Guest Writer this week is Jennifer Oldham, a resident and neighborhood Realtor for over 10 years. 

Jennifer was recently presented with the Coldwell Banker International President’s Circle Award, placing her in the top 5% of all company agents nationwide.

In this article, she is providing important information that you should know about solar panels when selling your home.  Thank you, Jennifer!

 

Most homeowners choose to lease their solar panels for a monthly fee, instead of investing over $20,000 to purchase the system.  When homeowners purchase their systems, they can actually generate monthly income by “selling” their excess electricity back to their local electric company.  Some refer to this as living “off the grid.” 

The monthly fee to lease a system is usually under $100 per month, but any excess electricity generated goes back to the solar company.  Usually, these leases are for 20 year terms, so the homeowner has to agree to pay the monthly fee for the entire lease term. 

The issue that may occur is when homeowners decide to sell their homes with a leased solar system - they have to make sure their buyer agrees to take over those payments.  This becomes a seller’s contingency. I have seen buyers terminate their home purchase contracts, once they learn about the lease. 

So, if you have leased solar equipment, make sure your Realtor is aware of it and provides full disclosure in the listing and in documentation left for buyers to see when visiting your home.
