I'm wildly delighted with the solar I got a couple weeks ago.

I took pictures... maybe you'd like to see how it looked going in.

When my friend who lives near Canyon Road came to see it, she said, "Oh, I think I could hide it on my property."

So, that makes me think that the person who was writing about their Victorian house could get it and make it work inconspicuously.

Oh dear... I have a tad of brain damage and I can't work out the html for urls...

The nerve damage is from a few things... but in the beginning it was from low vitamin B12...

the worst thing about it is that sometimes I just cannot stop saying the same thing... like "okay," once I say that it's hopeless and I usually say it many many times...

I didn't see a place for signatures when I did my profile, but what I have on my emails is this:

That's because if you have ridges on your fingernails, which is likely if you are under a lot of stress... then it's pretty likely that you are low on B12....

I sooooooooooo wish I'd known....

I did some calculation and using the maximum of tax rebates it would take roughly 20 years to break even on capital investment to put in solar to sell to power company.

Beware CitizenRe. They originally claimed to start installs in Sep 07.
In the next month, they'll need to:
*Decide where to build their factory
*Design their solar panels
*Account for all that money

Regarding Payoff Time for PV, it really varies by state.. at $7/W installed, I broke it down by state, though every different utility co. varies:

Arizona: 30 years (power is too cheap)
Colorado: 13-20 years
Connecticut: 3 years
New Jersey: 13 years
New Mexico: 8 years
New York: 8-10 years
Texas: 29 years (power is too cheap)
Washington: 9 years
