well, that's the problem really - alternative energy really isn't "cost
effective" yet. Most people in the mainland US do not participate in
alternative energy because it really saves them money. They do it for the
bigger benefits (i.e., a commitment to trying to make it cost effective down
the road).

Re: New Solar Energy options in Colorado

Are you planning on moving soon? The other thing that's important is that
the lease company basically takes your tax credits and benefits. You could
own it outright and save some cash.

Re: New Solar Energy options in Colorado

Well, that depends. Even with the credits it would cost us about $15000 -
that's a lot of cash to put out even to be greener!

Batware? You mean they all wear utility belts that just happen to have
whatever they need to solve a particular crime? 🙂
