For now though, I'm looking forward to seeing some cool solarpunk stuff.

Okay fedipeeps, if you write (or similar) then you might want to add yourself / get me to add you to the list on the Sunbeam City Wiki I've just made. It's an effort to collect all the solarpunk out there into one place for easier reference.
