Any make of panel can be used with any grid tie inverter. And panels
can be mixed so long as of similar specification. So no problems with
replace ments in that respect. Appearance might be an issue with odd
I too have an electric car. I recharge it on sunny days if at all
I have a 4Kwp array, the car takes 2.2Kw on charge.
All our domestic electricity is 240 volt here. (UK)
Well you must have pretty poor "grid tie inverters" (the correct term)
in the USA.
Or is this more republican propaganda?
Some have run for decades in Europe. There are no moving parts and if
they are in a cool dust free environment they run for a long long
What maintenance do you imagine you to something with no moving parts
that is self cleaning when it rains?
I know many people with PV arrays. I don't know one that has failed.
They are deemed to loose 1% max. of output/year.
Prices of the equipment has been in near free fall of late in Europe
so any failures will be much cheaper to replace than I paid initially.
I imagine this is so in the USA too.
It is clear the German government put a lot of money into solar but
they end up paying about 5 times as much for the electricity as I do
from a nat gas plant. About half of that price shows up on the tax
bill, not the electricity bill..
Yeah, great idea. We should convert to expensive solar panels
while the rest of the world uses the huge supply of natural gas,
instead of us. Better China and India should use the cheap fossil
fuels so they can have lower costs and put more of the USA out
of business. You're a financial genius harry!

Why do you need to keep demonstrating you're a stupid and ignorant bigot ?
As unpopular as it is, the Iraq war was a win too. There is a quasi
democratic government there that is not dominated by the Muslim
Brotherhood and is not actively threatening Israel (the only reason we
went there in the first place).
I still am not sure it was worth it but as long as the neocons in the
US are willing to start WWIII to save the West Bank Israeli
settlements, it was better than the alternative.
