yeah but why wouldn't noisebridge install solar panels?  it would be so easy on
the flat roof.

i think the first step would be to talk with the landlords and get permission
to apply for a permit, then the next step would be to draw up a specific design
for the system (including equipment choices and disconnect boxes and inverter
and racking) and then actually apply for the permit...

the rest is hardware and we're already good at that.
