Please, do tell us more, so we don't have to buy the CD to find out.
And while you're at it, tell us how much the taxpayers contributed to this project...

Thanks everyone for the info. It does look like batteries will be more costly than a generator. I mainly wanted to use the solar because it was already here, and I thought it would be less expensive, but I'll look at hooking up a generator and a crossover switch shortly.

You guys are awesome. =)
