I have a place that is about 30 miles outside of Phoenix city limits.
The piece of property was very inexpensive, because it is in the middle of nowhere. I rely on solar for all of my electricity needs. I also have a windmill on my property. I have an AC unit in my home that runs on solar. I’ve been fixing all of the little problems that come up from time to time, but last week the AC unit stopped working all together and I was unable to figure out a solution to the problem. I called a couple of places in Phoenix that offer AC repairs and maintenance. Most of the places were unwilling to drive out to my property because it is 30 miles outside of Phoenix. I was going through a list of companies calling each listed number. I called the 10th number on the list and the Phoenix AC repair company agreed to drive out to my home. The Phoenix AC repair company charged me a fee for the driving distance, but if I paid for the repair, the fee was waived. I ended up using the Phoenix AC repair company to replace my system with a much nicer solar air conditioner that is quite an upgrade. The AC repair company came back the next day to install the equipment. Not only did the company not charge me for either one of the trips that they made to my home, but they also gave me a 20% discount for allowing them to videotape the process for their youtube channel.
