hopefully not the last one....

but it is the first time I'm seeing a solar collector panel at a Vintage Vegas home. It's on Shadow Lane on the way into Scotch 80's.

Seems to be wired to to the electric driveway gate, but no one was home when I knocked to find out if it ran anything else, or if it fed power back to the grid etc.

Don't know why we aren't having them at least run the pool motors, and the outside lights. I wonder just how much power a panel that size (maybe 18"x30") can produce. Anyone know?

I'll try again next time I'm in the neighborhood.
