Now that we have solar, can we change the thermostat settings or leave the lights on?

No. Energy conservation will still be our priority and having solar does not change that.  The solar project is sized based on usage.  If our usage increases to more than what we sized the system for, we could end up paying more for energy through the solar production and to the utility company for electricity from the grid.  This would yield higher payments than not having solar.
