    I found this solar energy video on YouTube and although it's essentially a commercial for a solar company, the video is very well made and interesting viewing.

    What do you think? :dunno:

    I like the 44 gallon drum wind turbine... might be good if you lived at the beach, but if it went too fast it could get dangerous :hysterical:

    Imagine how much power could be produced in one of those tornadoes they get over there :D

    I thought it was a pretty cool cartoon - it must have cost a bit to make... I'm glad someone else found this thread finally lol

    Not sure why i hadn't seen this thread before.
    I didn't mind it. Gives a good overview of how the system works.
    Does it really take a couple of days to install a system like this? I've seen whole houses built quicker than that (well almost :sawwood:)

    Nah, that's bull! My 5 kW system was installed in a day and mine had to be mounted on brackets which added about twice the install time. I think that old couple got ripped :)
