    I agree that solar energy is the most abundant and easiest to capture.

    While PV electric solar setups are great for electronics, I do think we tend to “over-electrify” our solutions.

    I like to harvest it directly for:

    * Lighting

    * Heat (water and thermal mass)

    * Growing Food

    Do our roofs need to be so solid and opaque? We put solar panels on top to then turn on lights and heaters inside the house. How about a simpler greenhouse-like weather-shield that lets in more natural light and heat? Would you live inside a greenhouse?
