What gets me, why don't apartment complexes have solar cells on their 
roof tops.
There are an abundant number of apartments in HRM.  Why not try it? 

Landlords can make money by selling it to the rental units, and anything 
left over back to the city.
However, it might conflict with the newly painted coal smoke stacks (is 
that what the 10% price hike was for).
