That's cool. A 25% savings and help for the decaying grid.
You can either hold yourself up to the unrealistic standards of others,
or ignore them and concentrate on being happy with yourself as you are.

yes, i purchased them june 2009. 2.5 years saved $4500 so far. payoff
date should be 4.3 years, less if aps rate increases hit as planned.
0 costs in 2.5 years. the warrantee is 10 years on the converter, and 25
years on the panels, and low production is warranteed. production has
gone up in the past 2.5 years, so i'm not seeing a dropoff in
production. that may be due to less cloudy days though.
they've lasted through a 1.5" diameter hailstorm, so i expect that they
will last through anything normal in this area.
