    dear Sir/Madam
    In my opinion solar and wind energy are great to certain extent but they are costing the tax payers a fortune and they are only supplying energy amount to a drop in the ocean by the name of low carbon energy, I think the only way we are going to make any effect to the climate is to have a system for every home small and cheap enough and easy to install even if it can generate 2kw.hr daily.
    Watch this space all I am waiting is some help.
