If you don't mind my asking, how close to the house is the 403, how
tall the tower, how long the wire run/guage and primary voltage... and
what does the thing *sound* like?


Amen to that.

PV really isn't an option in your price range , it's also generally more
expensive than grid power.

If you think your computers are a large source of the draw it might be worth
upgrading/investing in computers
based on the mini-itx (via) motherboards. Also get rid of the CRT and
replace with LCD for monitors

The power draw is in the 10-20 watt range (excluding monitor) for 500
mhz-1ghz speeds .. Fine for any web-server and most business applications
