I'm looking to see about supplementing my electric consumption with 
solar. I didn't see anything about that on that thread other than a link 
to some pictures of solar panels.

I'm not really interested in the money savings. Although in Southern 
California we're paying about $0.11/kWh, so my lights would cost me that 
about $12.28 per month. More importantly, however, is that my aquarium 
lights will be directly responsible for almost one ton of CO2 emissions 
per year. If I can cut that in half with a couple hundred bucks in PV 
panels, I'm there.
