So here we are guys, thank me later. All those nut jobs that think there is an alternative to coal in the NE. Good panels at 10 bucks a pop... Dirt cheap. Don't grid tie, no approvals, no grants just do it. There are cheap ways of linking them, youtube is full of it. . Think about it, you can now afford a 20 kw array and on a cloudy day you could recharge your cell phone and perhaps even your laptop. Run your electric car on it ... You can thank me later ... hahahahahhahahahaa. I slay myself. I'm a little cold this morning and I'm off to grab some real energy from my coal pile.

You’re getting a new power plant not far from you, right off of I-84, what do you need solar for?

He wants to be able to charge his cell phone on cloudy days .He might even be able to power some led lites inside an antique stove on a cloudy day during the summer after a t-storm knocks out the power .

The tops of our ridges here in the Alleghenies are littered with “green energy”. Windmills dominate the landscape from Somerset to Northern Cambria. We hauled stone into every one of these and as much landscape was dozed up for roads and crane pads, I feel certain they could have stripped for coal much cleaner. Never mind all the wildlife that was disrupted for that nonsense.

They catch on fire and burn up, blades come apart and the maintenance on them is downright silly for all the more electricity the actually make. What happens years from now when they must be decommissioned because they are worn out junk?

And quite frankly, I think they look like hell.

So I am off to put one out in the back yard just for CN, he has inspired me, then I will wire it to run the blower on my stoker boiler for the three days per month that we have enough wind to do so. :D
