3370Re: backup solar system
- Sep 29, 2005Noyes,
I live in houston as well and want to learn about renewable energy.
I plan to put solar in my house at some time, but want to learn about
it so I can do it my self. I have also thought about doing a small
system to run some lights, fan, etc. also. What part of houston do
you live in? Maybe we can learn together or if you set yours up I can
help. There is tons of stuff on the web, it takes a lot of reading.
As I am finding out, there are many many facets to renewable energy.
I really want to do something with bio-diesel as well.
