Has anyone actually retrofitted their home with solar panels?  we
live in Halifax, Nova Scotia and every home here is heated by
heating oil.  By the end of the summer they are talking about oil
being at $80 a barrel and last year apparently they can within a
hair of running out of heating oil nationally.

We were wondering if it might be worth the investment to install
solar panels and then switch to electric base board heating.  I know
that solar panels won't provide much in terms of heat (because it's
so energy intensive) but we thought with the discount it might
provide and by only turning on the electric heat in rooms we are
using it may be a worthwhile investment.  Has anybody ever looked in
to this?
