              $50 sounds like a pretty good deal. He claims that you can build a solar system for less than $200! and it's portable! (is that a good thing? :rolleyes:). I think the value is in the step by step... time is money, and NOT having to re-invent the wheel would save countless hours... plus parts suppliers and such.

              Part of the savings is by letting you in on a secret of how to find deep cycle batteries for free... (batteries are very costly).

              I am tied up with other projects right now, but generating my own electricity is definitely on the list, so I may buy some how-to's somewhere, might give this one a shot.

              Still would like to know if anyone else has taken the plunge.:cool:
