Aside from the $0 million price tag, I wonder how much one might need
to spend for a maintenance contract and insurance...

...and how much might need to be spent on licensing.

You weren't thinking of putting it in /my/ back yard, were you? :)

OF course not.  I want one all to myself.  You can play with your fair
weather solar toys all you like.  I want to pull rods and rock and
roll all the time!

Does this mean we have to have a geothermal dump-load well to use the excess
energy when we are not running our peak load? Can the ground take that much
heat?

My pool has already has a huge lime ring when it evaporated dry from the
last one they said would get approval back in the 80s.
