We really like working with Midnite Solar products, made in the USA, but the best part is the people who run the place. boB, Robin, Ryan, Walter, Roy, Tom, Doug, the list goes on... they even have a shop cat.
Hands-on workshop covering solar thermal, solar electric, solar ovens, methane biodigesters and more...in beautiful Costa Rica, taught by our friend Ian Woofenden and his company Renewable Reality.
You can register for the workshop here.
The purpose of this series of Code Craziness articles is to gently poke some fun at the more absurd additions, omissions and twisted, incomprehensible language in NFPA 70, the National Electrical Code®.

Fun day at the historic Yahoo Sawmill in Buckville!
Ward needed some 8x8 posts to get going on completing his house, and some dandy big beetle-killed Ponderosa pines blew down in the gales of last winter....
