Yeah me neither - I would be willing to pay $1000 down and then a monthly
payment that is less or close to my current electricity costs though. So
really, the fact that it doesn't "belong" to me might not be so bad if the
other terms of the lease are okay.

My pleasure. I also found a simpler design that was originally
published in "Mother Earth News" way back in 1977.

Some enterprising soul should build one of each and find out which one
is more efficient. 🙂

Yeah, that may not be bad. Not sure about Colorado, but NY is gonna jack up the electric rates big time.

The state DEC (where I do work at) has a cap and tax thingy that already is charging the electric companies millions (so I know that'll be passed along to us consumers).

National Grid (our main electric supplier) wants people to "conserve" electricity, so they've publicly stated that they're going to request a rather large rate increase.

Plus National Grid is deploying Smart Grid and they're passing that cost to the consumers as well (and you cannot opt out of it), I believe it will ad about $20-40/month onto the average electric bill already.

Soooo, in our neck of the woods, that's about a 50% increase in the next year or two for electricity.

So leasing may be attractive (not sure of all the details).

But I'm pretty sure rates in CO are nowhere near as bad as here.
