  When I imagine this in action, I gotta say it would look madly cool.

  However, if you want to convince people to get seriously interested,
I think you should present at least rough back-of-the-envelope
calculations and few crucial numbers:

  * How much ozone is being depleted, i.e. what exactly are we trying to

  * How much ozone would you be able to generate with a single
    reasonably-sized and reasonably-priced device given current solar
    panel and battery technology.
