Great idea Jean, just one flaw that I see. The Pacific Northwest has a very good solar index to produce solar energy. Actually it is much higher than most of Germany. We produce excellent Pinot here as well due to the good sun index and cool evenings. We are trying to fix the stereotypes that are attached to our state. I was at a Career fair with my tiny solar array trainer that was producing 3 amps of current with many clouds in the sky and mist in the air. The High School students who came over didn't believe that Oregon could produce any solar energy at all and I blew their minds with our demonstration. It doesn't always rain in Oregon and it isn't always sunny either. But we do have the capacity to produce our own solar power.
