Even more insane is replicating a totally wasteful life style with re-
newables. Solar is only viable when it costs considerably less than a
grid connection. When it comes to reducing ones energy costs
insulation and better energy awareness can save a grid connected home

Baloney. Lots of sensible people have spent *more* to have solar
instead of or in addition to a grid connection, for a variety of
reasons. Two of the most common are that a backup supply was desired,
or they expect grid prices to skyrocket.
Wow, that's deep man. Thank you Captain Obvious!

Baloney. I see you have no scientific refutation. PV Solar does make sense
when the grid is so far away it would cost a fortune for a connection
*and* you live in a sunny place ( very variable - see insolation maps ).
If it isn't, use the grid and simply be energy efficient e.g. by property
construction style. Mass production of grid energy is hugely less costly

Totally agreed but sadly little promoted.
Why ? Call me a cynic but there's more money to be made in selling allegedly
energy to the gullible that actually costs a fortune both in your pocket and
conceivably environmentally too. Where have all the 'environmental impact
due to the hugely increased level of spam please make the obvious adjustment to
