      Seems like a good idea, but for how much will the electricity company pay for our energy? For the same price as they sell to us? Nice hub, thanks.

      No doubt about that Solar Energy is the best way to go but the initial investment is probably greater than the normal building material. There would be maintanence issues as well. Thanks for the informative hub!
