We've heard this before.

"In 1954, Lewis Strauss, the Chairman of the United States Atomic Energy Commission, promised a future of energy that would be 'too cheap to meter.'”

Yeah. We are at a point where the installation costs are becoming the big factor in reducing the price. OTOH, I don't know any real way to reduce those much because you are going to need someone with electrical knowledge to hook those things up...I mean, unless you want a lot of fires and electrocutions and such.

What we also need is a way to spread solar power to renters - both apartment and house renters.
