Solar power = free, unlimited energy*

*except when the sun isn’t shining.

Which, in Troy, Michigan, is apparently enough of the time during the winter that if something goes wrong with your battery back-up, your 800 sq. ft‡, $900,000, completely off-grid alternative energy showplace has it’s pipes freeze causing so much damage it is unsafe for use.

Nearly a million dollars for an 800 sq. ft. house?  My bloody apartment is bigger than that.  Triple my energy costs and I can pay them for the next 50 years and still have $700,000 left over.
