Deduct 100%. I really never though I'd list a new Ti-Cat stadium as a compelling reason to go off the grid, but here ya go.

I support publically owned electrical generation, but I'm tiring greatly of "Publicly" owned utilities. In so many ways these types of generation (especially nuclear and hydro) are simply venue to heap enormous amounts of debt on populations (look at any World-Bank-Backed dam in the Developing World). And while kilowatt for kilowatt they may be (arguably) as efficient as alternatives like wind and solar, centralizing the facilities and parking them out of town means huge power drains over transmission wires, and huge financial drains at head office. From Edison onward engineers knew smaller, decentralized generation was a far better ides - just one they couldn't profit off.

Horizon is a dinosaur. The future of energy production looks a lot more like a chipmunk.
