12. the utilities don't even notice sources
The utilities already have a means of noticing and keeping track of small producers through the meters.
It shouldn't be to hard for them to cut checks instead of credits.
If nothing else it would be nice to have credits roll over from year to year instead of going back into the utility share holders pockets at the end of the year.

I looked into the leasing option.Maybe in the future I'll try it but for now I'm gonna stick with selling systems.
As far as venture capital goes-Right now I have several investor interested for a small scale operation.However we are kicking around the idea of a national marketing campaign.If we go that route then we may need additional capital.

Thanks for the info on the Renewables Portfolio.I'll give it a look-see.
