got sun?

We're watching a NOVA on harnessing the sun. What I wouldn't give for $25k, give or take, to invest in photovoltaics for our southern exposure roof. Probably not the best time to try to get a bank loan, however...

No, probably not the best time to try for a bank loan.

But if you're interested, I did find this DIY solar generator online. I haven't tried it, yet, but it's in the plans for my 21-day challenge :). The cost is very reasonable, and it might be enough power to keep some things running - like a computer or a television ... or a refrigerator ... or provide the needed electrical charge for my gas tankless water heater so that in the event of a power outage, I can take a hot shower (dude! Take all the rest, but give me my shower! - I know, I'm spoiled :)
