This website - http://green-energy-at-home.com/solar-stirling-plant, describes and reviews all about buying these products. I think the Solar Stirling Plant is really great and is my favourite because I can generate electricity with it and even hook it to the grid for extra cash.

Imagine if the crooks fell off the roof? They would have sued the homeowner! Thank you crooked politicians for giving crooks the power to sue people they rob -- while taking away a citizen's right to to carry a side-arm.

This isn't the Manalapan we raised our children in. We need to start seriously paying attention and watching out for our neighbors.
