I don't know what all of the contributors are, but in Brisbane, Oz, where out boat is parked many of the houses have between 15 and 30 solar panels on the roof. It is a very good area for solar with intense radiation, and electricity in the country is pricey since they don't have big hydro installs or nukes. I wonder if there are government rebates when you buy the panels or what? I think a fair comparison would be Queensland and Florida and you rarely see so many solar installations in Florida.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
