    Got to watch out for that. Should have discussed it with the neighbor.

    Their problems are more serious than that.
    the earth, apparently, has stopped revolving.
    total darkness on the other side of the planet .
    major cataclysmic events to follow.

    Neighbor would be in violation of his solar rights in many places.

    We live in a remote area “off the grid” and have had hydro power for years. During dry years we need more power so we bought a solar system for $40,000 a few years ago. It’s life expectancy is 25 years and the batteries must be replaced every 7 years @ $12,000 a set. The total cost averages $240 a month and the system produces about $75 worth of power if we were “on the grid”. Solar power isn’t ready for prime time yet.

    Rather than wind or solar power, I think I would go with an electro-magnetic generator. I’m currently looking into the cost and longevity of such a system.

    There goes the local bat and raptor population…….

    Solar isn’t ready because you jumped the gun?

    LOLOL!

    What idiots we be!

    What do you do on a cloudy day?
    What does his neighbor do on a calm day?

    @Redhead55

    Please explain how this electro-magnetic generator is powered. How does it produce power?

    I am all ears …

    There goes the local anything-that-flies population. They’re finding dead eagles in the wind turbine farms in Colorado, both bald eagles and golden eagles.

    they told me back in the 1970’s it was just around the corner, damn big corner to make.

    I think it was Toshiba that had developed a self contained nuke plant that would provide all the power for a city of like 23-30,000. and price well under typical power plant.

    Chuck Barnard: Sun rights are unlikely to be affected as the shadow would only be in that position for an hour or so. If longer, the law would apply.
    .
    rush.diana: Bats could avoid them in total darkness. Eagles are slower reacting, but casualties would be minor compared to the rate of avian deaths caused by skyscrapers. Strange there were never any such reports in the pre-REA days of abundant farm windmill pumps and generators. Studies of the Danish off-shore wind farms show most birds view them as a solid object and fly around the whole array, while gulls and cormorants view the maintenance platforms and ideal nesting sites. I think these avian death stories come from the American Petroleum Institute.

    @treesareus

    Solar power is for those who are too far off the grid. It also gives the users a sense of “smug.”
