    The mourning line, I just slow-nodded to that, as to my memories of K-8 Catholic school, yes, with the ruler-bearing nuns.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Re: AOC Rules!

    One of my favorite exchanges when they're talking about the abortion protesters.

    Liz: You're Catholic, can't you talk to them?

    Bethany: They hate me more than you. At least you have an excuse, you're Jewish, you don't know any better.

    Liz: I don't think they'd accept that one, we used that one already when we killed Christ.

    That was so classic.

    Its a no brainer in certain parts of the country, pairing them with mini split heat pumps is also a no brainer in the south as AC is needed when the sun shines. I've seen smaller mini splits with SEER of 40 now. Thats unreal. https://www.coolingpost.com/world-ne...42-seer-split/

    Just plug them off grid but not so if its grid tied. Micro inverters have been around a long time. They have become much more reliable and have some advantages.

    Kennedy's famous speech to congress came in May of 1961. At that time the United States had flown just one Mercury mission, Alan Shepherd's 15 minute, suborbital flight. It was 9 months before an American even orbited the earth and nearly 4 years before the first manned mission of Project Gemini. Yes we had a "space program" when Kennedy called for a man on the Moon, but just barely. At the time the Apollo project was mostly nothing more than a larger follow-up to Project Mercury, with most of its funding dedicated to determining if we could even put multi-person teams into space. Many in NASA at the time did not believe we could accomplish such a lofty goal of landing on the Moon, and before the first Gemini missions some in NASA even wondered if the only way TO accomplish it would be a multi national approach, including partnering with the Soviets.

    Yes they have, but how many panel-micro inverter systems are being marketed right now? Especially when it's designed to be modular- buy them in the bulk you can afford, and just add more as you can. Without storage, the cost of power my MIL's home is just $4k- which is pretty amazing (yes, her service is that small).

    Most any panel can have a micro inverter. Companies make them not tied to a panel. You add them as you go. I havent looked lately but Sunny Boy used to make one. There are other manifacturers.

    Well, forgive me for not knowing the current state of the art that supports AOC's arguments....

    There's far too much internet fluff to really believe it, which makes finding the real situation close to impossible.

    The installers I know have stayed away from micro inverters because having electronics sitting on a roof isnt the nicest enviroment for them. A large system could have 20 or 30 micro inverters on roof. They are combing strings and bringing them down into a large inverter in basement/garage etc. Easier maintenance if necessary. But old habits die hard and micros have improved.
