>> It is a crying shame you have to go through this...  My wife and I were considering a move to Arizona.  Among the reasons we did not move-- the number of solar installations in Arizona, there seems to be one or two, on every block.

>> Thank you for posting these updates, it helps others, and it has helped me to decide where to live...  THANK YOU, and sorry you have to go through this...
