    Those look like garbage! They would never pass any electrical inspection or be good for resale value.

    The "Horsemen" and the blame. 1.) Aquifer depletion is to be blamed on the people who are over the aquifers, not on outsiders. 2.) Soil depletion can only be blamed on the countries where they are or have depleted their own soils(by not adding organics/composts, salinization by over-irrigation with river waters high in salts, citification by uncontrolled population growth and sprawl, and by not fallowing the land), not on outsiders. 3.) Oil depletion can only be blamed on the countries with oil who have sold it for their own wealth to outsiders. 4.) AGW has a number of sources of blame; the countries burning oil, the countries burning coal, the countries using slash and burn agriculture, the countries cutting down their forests--not outsiders. 5.) overpopulation beyond sustainable is the fault of the countries involved. It may be their culture. It may be their average stupidity. It may be religions. It may be their immigration policies. It may be the greed of some. It may be a combination of factors. 6.) world fisheries collapse can be blamed on drift netters, shark finners, and 3 billion people who get 60% of their protein from fish/seafood. 7.) Surface water pollution/depletion can be blamed on the people in the areas it is occurring and the people upstream who over-use and pollute with everything from agricultural chemicals, industrial waste, excrement, and pharmaceuticals.

    It must be reiterated that you must check you local building department requirements for electrical. Most require permits and inspections. DIY panels or wind generators may be allowed or they may need to be UL approved. Most require UL approved. Some solar power installations require no permit if they are 15 amps DC or below, check your local regs.
    Danwillie, Jason was banned, as you can see, for being a spammer of garbage looking panels that are not UL approved. I left the video here to show what NOT to do.
    I have seen videos of well made DIY panels, but when you can get UL approved panels at as low as 80 cents per watt, why bother? DIY installation of UL approved shopped for and best deal components saved us so much that the system paid for itself in 6 1/2 years. That was when panels were $4+ per watt!! They passed inspection and have been performing very well. The only thing we would do different now is to use NiFe batteries instead of lead acid.
