Is there such a thing as cheap solar/wind?
Any tips/tricks for obtaining solar panels cheaply? (besides sitting on e-bay for 6 months till a deal comes along on a kyocera).
PSE&G just put up thousands of panels on New Jersey electrical poles, I wonder if they have excess that they would sell or something? Are there other ways of obtaining used or otherwise cheap panels for a do it yourselfer?
I'm not talking about a set-up to run a refrigerator off of while crossing the pacific, but rather something rigged up for topping off the batteries during extended weekending.
How about wind generation? Lots of DIY wind generator projects online, does anyone have any real experience with these types of project windmills on boats?
Just curious for some input from any scroungers/DIYers out there.
