I just read this short article on a solar installation in France.
The photo caught eye because it looked like something built at the Lab!

One of the most most practical it seemed to me solar installations I’ve seen was an array like this, but the firewood for the house was stacked under the solar panels. I’ve always meant to ask folks who do solar, is this as good an idea as it appeared?

 PV solar panels get warm,  and also shed water, so it seems like great idea to me.

Lovely.
But...don't they have termites in France?
