I like your home solar report EX396,I was wondering if you don't mind posting what part of the country you live in? As it seems like you are happy with your set-up. I have a younger brother who did a solar study for a class project when he was attending Syracuse University. HUD paid him a grant to investigate if solar would work in the New York City area. His conclusion was that there is to much fallout from pollution to be worth while. I live in upstate NY,where the air is pretty clear of pollution,however we have a fair amount of cloudy days. Yet there are a few solar companies promoting their systems in my area,& I'm doing my own evaluations on the best way to go.
