Tonight I am enjoying the benifits of a small solar power system!


I scrimped and saved up a whoppingly large pile of Canadian tire money and bottles and spent them all on

1 solar panel, a charge controller, a deep cycle battery, and an inverter! after hooking it all up, I am now running three lights, a clock radio and a small portable dvd player off of it! I will also be using it too charge my rechargable AA and triple A batteries. . . It should pay for itself in savings in 2 to 3 years.
It was a bit under $300 for everything including an extension cord. The hardest thing to hook up was mounting the solar panel. a one legged monkey could do the rest.

If only the city could follow this fine example of leadership, and get the entire city off grid. less than one third of one years city taxes could buy one million of the systems I just installed in my house.

Leadership. Some people on social assistance have it, while lots of Mayors, premiers and Prime Ministers don’t.
