    I went to apply for a permit to install a simple solar hot water collector on the flat roof of an apartment building I own where I pay for the hot water.  The city of San Diego had a daunting gauntlet of departments I had to visit located in different parts of town.  I ended up just bootlegging the project.  I have since enjoyed a substantial reduction in my natural gas bill.  During summer months the system provides all the hot water with no back up necessary.  

    Having off the shelve thermal and electric systems in Home Depot and a simple one stop permitting process would go a long way to making these systems as common as conventional water heaters and utility provided fossil generated electricity.
