- Oct 1, 2005
I have read that wind generated power is less expensive and in may be more productive than solar. Before buying solar you might want to see which would be more cost effective. I was interested in solar but, with demand outstripping supply the cost of solar is a premium.

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.
