These links are "weird" because they fall into categories that are not covered (yet) elsewhere in The Dog House.
So until there are dedicated pages for the categories below, I've swept them up over here. 

Welcome to the
Dog House Dust Pan.

(links will open in new windows)

Alternative Energy sites:

While I've always had an interest in solar power, I've now become a huge proponent of alternative energy - especially grid-tied PV systems.  I currently have a PV system installed on my RV, and hope to someday add one to my home (assuming the dictatorial homeowners association doesn't throw a hissy fit).  In the near future, I plan to have a section of my website that addresses the benefits of distributed power generation. 

Until then, below are some links that you might find useful.
