As a matter of Turkish national
security, we would strongly
encourage solar panels on
individual homes so that if an
earthquake and tsunami damage
transmission lines, pipelines and
maritime transportation,  
Turkish households will still
have electricity and heat. As the
national grid is repaired families
can then provide their excess
power to those in need.  Note
that solar energy can be used to
power smart cars which act as
mobile batteries and reduce use
of imported hydrocarbons.
