"...In order, probably 1,4,2,5, but since I'm already doing all of
them, I'll
still root for cheaper PV."

So how much cheaper would PV have to become in order to move up to even
3rd on your list?

$.50/W, probably.  In small generation it's not a lot worse deal than wind.

No - a $.50/W _reduction_ in cost.  He asked how much cheaper it would have
to be.  I've been paying CDN$ to $.50/W.  $.50-$ would put it right
into the range of small wind turbines.
