I literally jumped on the Oregon tax credit at the last minute the previous year. Going from 30% to nil overnight made it go from worth paying somebody else to install it to being obscenely expensive again without going DIY.

As a field service technician, I see so many homes with running streams nearby that don't utilize micro-hydro, I die a little inside each time. Most people have no clue about that.
