Living in the Green Future
Popped into Costco today to pick up a couple of items, and what did I see?
Just in case you can't read that too well, it's a 60W solar panel setup, with inverter (allowing it to power 110V devices), junction box to hook the four panels together, cabling, and frame... for under $300.
Stacked like tires at Costco.
This is a beautiful example of why I talk about the banality of the future. Cheap solar power systems readily available to the unwashed masses was once something out of science fiction; today, it barely elicits a glance from shoppers stocking up on cases of pickles and TVs by the six-pack.
The future isn't here. The future was here awhile ago, ate all your donuts, and took off to get some beer.
