    I have an idea I wish we could make happen with regards to generating solar power from a residential homesite.  Instead of the minimum panels to help offset the cost, why not cover the roof with as many as structurally possible, with enough batteries to last through the night and an opportunity to sell unused power as an investment for the home owner.  If someone could make this happen, I would be fine with selling the power back to the local power company at wholesale just for the investment potential.  I am sick of everybody but me getting rich on my 401K and would remove trees in my yard to put my money into something that would have more positive gains.

    There was a report before the pandemic about an ocean turbine that used wave energy to produce electricity. Two guys in the pacific northwest won a competition.  Why not follow up on that? Where is the prototype? Who has invested in the award winning solution? 

    Competition went from 2015 to ?
