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.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
