Steve,
Thanks so much for sharing your very honest perspective of your new experience with solar. I do appreciate this endorsement. Thrills me to know this is working so well for you!

The one thing I think is so important as regards a departure (whether is be total or partial, depending on need) from fossil fuel is that the solution most conducive to a region be utilized. In our case, here in the southwest with an abundance of guaranteed sunlight and BTUs, we can depend on solar technologies and applications. Plus, the fact that our utilities and Fed will work with us with rebates, tax credits, etc. is very beneficial financially and environmentally in lots of ways, as you point out.

One thing that troubles me. The influence of HOA and negative view or prohibitive view of solar panels on our roofs is daunting. We live in a state with 90% sunlight year round and in some neighborhoods solar panels are forbidden. I've done a lot of conversing on this issue in my neighborhood. Many of us have and I see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Thanks again, Steve!
