Read the fine print!

A banner ad on MSN caught my attention promising a 70% savings on my electric bill for $200 in parts. I read through it with all the claims of the utility companies wanting to bury the information. I googled it for other opinions and found a great endorsement from "Consumers Guide". They claimed they built and tested the product and it worked exactly as explained in the book. They even included a link to get the best pricing on the book that told how to build these great solor panels and wind generator. At the bottom of the page was very small print almost the same shade as the background. I hi-lighted it and pasted in word. Following is the enlarged and readable copy.

It appeares to me they are admitting to lying about everything they said in their promotion of this wonderful product. I thought it was to good to be true.
