I am always thrilled to see examples of PV power in action if it includes private individuals getting to participate. I know it's good for the environment whether the PV power is generated by individuals or corporations, but "individuals" lose out most of the time and corporations get most of the benefits. Germany allows individuals to participate as do many localities in this country. It amazes me how few people actually do participate, but will gamble their hard earned money in a mutual fund.

It took four years for my electric cooperative {cooperative suggests cooperation, and they ain't it} to allow me to operate a PV array, but I am blessed to have it going right now! I am still commited to, and working on, being as energy efficient as I know how. The PV array ties into my retirement planning.
