solar gets niftier

We're in the process of upgrading our solar setup at the farm - graduating from 12v to 240v, which means bigger panels on the roof, and more of 'em.  That's an exciting prospect, but seeing this incredible development makes us wonder why EVERY roof and wall in the world isn't decked out ...
Marketed as 'solar ivy', it's a pretty beautiful looking setup - loads of small photovoltaic cells all clipped to a mesh that feeds your battery and beautifies at the same time.

Pretty nice, huh?
