      enthusiast?  The reason I ask is that I've been noodling with an idea that could dramatically accelerate achieving the holy grail of PV (grid parity) and I would be interested in bouncing the idea off of somebody in the industry.

      It's not a technical idea but more of a policy prescription that would create the economic model for massive investment in PV production/installation.
