....and if you don't have an account with the Dark Empire can you still come?
I set about a few months ago to model the financial gains of PV and it was a real nightmare - there are so many variables. I ended up with an 8 year payback as we only have a monthly lecky bill of $110.
It doesn't help that we have built a low carbon house - no gas - so cooking is a big hit.
However my recommendations are that if you want to go with PV you need to run everything you can on timers....water heating and all the appliances you can - dish washer, washing machine, freezer(?) etc. These need to run during the day when you're making electricity as storing it on the grid quickly becomes too expensive......and change to Meridian!
AC micro-inverters and power out systems are coming too which are great steps forward.
OK you got me there - thanks. ;-)
"Are there any ethics left in modern politics?" was where I was getting to. :-)
I was interested in the Prime Minister's use of the word "mistake" - i.e. "Len made a mistake - we all make mistakes".
When I last looked having an extra marital affair could hardly be described as....
"an error in action, calculation, opinion, or judgment caused by poor reasoning, carelessness, insufficient knowledge, etc."
....I think we all know that if you view marriage as a worthy institution shagging around is wrong.
