Morning Joe Might post later, but lighting strikes have been horrific last few days. Have a Super Thursday! ;-)

Yea - that TimLee dude went postal when I suggested that atheists must've voted in B.O. (twice). His discussions are on a 1-way-street, evidently. Oh well. I'll check out the new intake soon...

Aghh They're splittin' hairs, Joe. NJ's # 5, out of 51...not bad at all!

The solar bond appears to be a form of crowdfunding. I do know that Google bought 300 million in corporate bonds and also put in a lot of solar in their offices. Maybe they are tapping a new source of funds for expansion. Like I said Silicon Valley startups like to get a big wad of funding and try to get profitable before the funds are gone. Lots of companies fail because they spend too much too soon. The bonds look pretty good as they are funded with money from the sale of power on the no-down leases as I understand it. The six year bond gives 4% after taxes assuming the 28% bracket. Not bad at all unless of course inflation bears its ugly head. I b lucky to get 2-3 KW h today as it is really dank and drear.

I hear U about those nukes, Joe. But in this modern day & age, I still prefer the risk. Just like the risk of (almost daily) having an attached garage that's loaded with >35lbs. of Liquid Propane & (potentially) > 50gal's of gasoline in it~ yes, and while children sleep nearby;) ttys~drill'.

I got a 5.24 today. Tomorrow looks like a washout as well as Thursday. They say we will get 1-2 inches of rain.

Looks like they can be bought directly. Might be a good place to put some retirement money of course not all of it or a large part of it. I would ladder them too....

Just took a look at the Bond conditions and found it interesting. Will let you know if I decide to buy some. Bonds have not appealed to me as return is not so good as stocks. Ot course most bonds are safer than stock. I need to really look into these Solar bonds though.

Thanks for the link. MA ranks numero uno!! Interesting to look at some of the other states. I was surprised how low Idaho ranked but they do have a lot of hydro power. Some other news SolarCity is offering $1K SolarBonds at 4% interest. Do not know any other details but the rate is relatively high at this time. Length of the bond was not stated.

North Carolina is in an interesting place for solar policy right now. There is perhaps no other state at such a critical juncture. The state’s excellent tax credit will expire at the end of 2015, and rebates are small and hard to come by. Without some action in the next year, North Carolina—long a regional leader in solar power—could be getting a D or an F in our 2016 rankings. not my fault; I don't vote right
