Dear John;

Thanks for your e-mail. With solar panels I think such could be used for
soil cables and save on electricity. Thus the installation would cost a
little, but the sunlight is free! I am sure such will come to pass, if
not already here, and be used to raise vegetables and fruit. Such is
much used in California for various signs, and one sees them along the
freeways all the time. There are also certain tax advantages in using
sun panels as efforts re made to save fuels. Cheers, John E. Bryan
