Is solar power any good?
do they make inexpensive panels yet that can run like say all the lights in a house? Can you store enegery into a huge battery during the day to use at night?

A friend of mine has panels on his RV that run most everything during the day, He has several write ups I have to find it though. I would imagine if he could run a large RV off panels some sort of inexpensive or at least helpful home system could be setup.

Not sure about storaged energy, makes sense though. I wonder if they make super Deep cycle batteries like Optima makes only one that could take it constantly and surive.

I used to work for BP Solar. They are headed in the right direction with using solar energy.

Lots of info on their website:
