because i know it turns hkpuss's crank below is something in list form...
i'm currently researching the following things:
solar power panels
wind power turbines
power storage units
DC power transmission through a house
I figure, hey, i have 193847193847 computers running 24/7 as well as a slew of networking devices. most of them have AC->DC transformers... maybe it makes sense to go to a renewable energy source since most of those output DC to store in a battery.
who knows. we'll see how far i get. plus that might allow me to drop my energy costs...
