While solar power seems to be a form of free energy, after the initial
investment for equipment, dont do it!
The reason is that in less than one year, the Sun is going to burn out.
Without the sun, solar power will not work. You'll spend many thousands
of dollars on equipment that will not have any value. Some persons
believe that the Sun will last forever, when in fact it's nearly dead
now. It's been burning for millions of years, and it's almost out of
fuel. Once the Sun burns out, all solar equipment is obsolete, and
you'll only get scrap metal value for it, which is little compared to
the cost to buy it.
It is likely the Sun will actually burn out before the end of this year.

Not so. While the sun is shining you can capture some of the solar
generated power and use it to power a light that you shine on the
solar power array. That will keep generating electricity after the
sun dies. You can do the same type of recapturing with wind turbines
connected to large fans.
It sounds like a perpetual motion machine, but that is the kind of
thing that appeals to greenie weenie sun/wind enthusiasts.
The only difference with home-generated energy and
commercially-supplied energy is the size of the government subsidies.
Neither system is economically sustainable without outside support
*or* raising prices to reflect the real costs and risks of the ventures.
"economy of scale"?... Isn't that just claptrap, fantasized by
unscientific economists/bean counters?
Oops... ignore the above... wrong news group!
ps. (not to be a pedant, but it's 'economies of scale')

Advanced??? Then why do your automobiles pollute the air?
Fact: 99.999% of automobiles licensed to go on the road in
Europe, since 1970, _HAVE NOT_ been allowed on the roads of
North America. Reason... they don't meet the California/USA/
Canadian emission regulations!

Most of Europe doesn't have the type of weather suited to solar.
Plus,$6000 USD is quite a lot of KWH,unless his KWH over there is
I'm also curious as to how it's put back into the power grid,phasing and
then there's the cost of the solar panels and installation,so how long will
it take to pay off that debt? what subsidies did he get?

If what you say is true, simply take out a loan for the cost of
solar installation.... When the sun burns out, there will be no heat
or light, and the loan company cannont find your house to
repossess their property...
.... dude... you just gotta think it through !!!!
