You boys need a waterfall in your back yard
My Uncle runs one. sells power back to hydro :)
You would be amazed at where Ontario gets power when things start to peek in mid summer.
Things might have changed but power companys buy power on a spot market that flucuates like the stock market. They buy and sell blocks of power.
