Going solar: Not so SNAPpy

Looking further into prices for my solar power setup, it appears that a grid-worthy inverter will cost more than $1,000, which would almost double the cost of setup of a solar photovoltaic system for the office. Eventually, I'd like to feed back into the grid, and it would pay for itself pretty quickly, but I just don't have that kind of cash on hand. So, no SNAP for the Republic.

At least not yet.

Hans and I went down to ABS Alaskan and took a look at the various goodies they have there--so delightful. I filled out the electric load form incorrectly, apparently, and so it looks like I'd be using less power than I thought. I hope.
