    We should be putting solar panels, oh, about everywhere. Shouldn't be allowed to build a house in the Sun Belt without them, at the barest of minimums.

    You know, afternoon in July.

    This peak offset would go a long way in reducing fossil fuel burn, as those tend to be the energy production techniques which are used at peak times, as they can more rapidly and cheaply be activated.
