Inspired by: I am on a mission to accelerate the transition to solar energy. http://lightontheearth.blogspot.com/
I have been designing, developing and living with solar energy systems that are user-friendly, affordable, robust, and easily maintainable for thirty years. I design solar energy systems that support all of the amenities considered necessary in the developed world. In systems of my design, I have never experienced a power outage. It is my legacy work to spread what I have learned as far and wide as possible for the sake of my children and all future generations.
