There was an interesting energy column in the real estate section in today's paper. Solar power, even just for your water heater, is not a do-it-yourself project. You need good carpentry, plumbing, electrical, roofing, and other skills; and you have to be careful not to put holes in your roof. I also learned that there's a safety issue because of the high temperatures that solar-heated water can reach.
