Oh you mean the OP worked for the store in Oakville. (smile)

I live at Latitude 57 north so photovoltaic doesn’t work so good in winter.

This week I am supposed to do a science presentation for some grade school kids on PV panels. Guess what? weather forecast calls for cloudy and rain all week. Just can’t win! Have to find another demonstration subject.

Some people say I am politically incorrect because I promote use of generator sets. But what other choices do we have? There is a distributor locally who sells wood gasification equipment but the reality is this region is rapidly running out of wood feedstock for any sort of bio-energy alternative. Meanwhile the gas companies have capped almost half the gas wells because they feel they are not getting enough money.

What a cockeyed world we live in.
