    Any word on how much the project is going to cost? Average cost per resident? Who’s footing the bill? Is it taxpayer money, private equity?

    Solar Power is so cool. it is clean and renewable energy. when the cost of solar panels goes down, i think every home should be owning a mini solar power station.
