I have to ask the same question, P13. I joined this site primarily b/c I was seeking advice on a rather straightforward project (or so it seemed), but it didn't take long before my fascination with solar and wind power found their way into other posts.
What amazed me is that there was always quite a bit of interest in the topics on both the electrical and plumbing boards (haven't spent much time in the other boards yet, but give it some time--the house is old and so is almost every system in it).
It is my firm belief that the cost of energy can only go one way. Therefore, I'd like to be proactive and design systems for that renovation project that will reduce my reliance on both natural gas and electricity. An alternate energy board would sure help in that endeavor. I know, there are already some DIY solar forums out there, so solar is obviously gaining as a DIY field of interest.......
How about this, Nathan? Do you think there's enough interest at this point to consider expansion????
TIA for whatever time and effort you choose to dedicate to this issue.
