The Hotel (an American) Crowne Plaza (adjacent to the 2008 Olympic Stadium, arranged these guided tours through another American company Grayline of Beijing, unlike they conduct tours in most American cities through a bus, but by a nice new Honda car, driven by a Chinese Chaufer, and a Pleasant young Chinese girl wel versed in Engish language to answer most of our question which also provided lunch (based on our choice).I would highly recommend to all a visit to China to dispel our image and the contnued progress of China inspite of all the bad news we hear on the TV and printed media. It was a most enjoyable trip (11.5 hours from Los Angeles to Tokyo, and 3.5 hours from Tokyo to Bejing). People are very courteous and helpful. Food and taxis are dirt cheap, except the lodging, which is worth the visit - much better than many other Hotels.Bashir A.

One thing I can suggest is that FRY;s Electronics store has at least one or two 100 Watt solar Polycrystalline Silicon panels costing about $6.67/Watt (Peak) retail and the same number of Charge Controllers. They also have one or two 18-Watt kits containing everything for RV owners for $150.00.The other and least expensive proposition is to show them a Video "An Introduction to Residential Solar Electricity with Johnny Wieis, produced by Home Power Magazine for training purposes used by our company.Bashir A.

Subject: RE: Help in istalling Solar Panels in Our School
I received a small grant to install solar panels with inverters to teach
our students alternative sources of energy. Are there any helps you
could provide to us to help us carry out this educational project?
The things I need are: solar panels, mount, inverters and batteries. I
also need help installing them. My grant is about teaching students
alternative sources of energy.
