Until solar panels are cheap enough (or subsidized enough) that *everyone* will have 5-6 on their roof.

 Hello seriously-reduced-strains on the power grid.



how do you compute how much electricity a solar panel can make? take it's average live span (in hours) and divide the cost of the panel into that?


and I wish I was paying 1.5-2.5 cents/kWh. our electricty is petroleum, shipped from the oppisite side of globe. costs about $0.14 /kWh



All hail our supreme overlord the great burning sky god! May you shine your life-giving rays upon us, and bless our 200W GPUs! ALL HAIL!
