    I have been pondering the idea of getting Solar Power added to the house (of course I dont think my Home Owners Association would allow all the mirrors or photo-voltaic sheets on my roof)

    Is your area good for Solar Power?
    Here is a great LINK

    My Areas solar rating is:
    Good (4.989 kWh/sq-m/day)

    and the estimates to pay 50% of my electric bill would cost me about $162,000

    That is a little steep, how about you?
