    Feel free to be happy. for now..

    Your panels will degrade 2% per year at a minimum. At 20 years I expect you will have had to replace all of them at some point along with your inverter... Nature of the beast when dealing with the sun and electricity.

    You have no clue how rain, dust and wind affect your system because it decrease the amperage output of your system.

    And FYI, I have a hybrid system that uses wind generation, PV arrays, battery storage for 7 days and a back up generator set that I seldom use but is kept in operating condition. I don't sell any power back because its not worth it. My base line connection fee is 8.98 a month. I could live totally off grid but do not choose to.. I am very well versed in these systems..

    Enjoy it while its working...

    I doubt that highly. California immigrant communities are highly concentrated. I know of no city in Cali where Sikhs and Muslims live together. Yuba City is the largest concentration of Sikhs in Cali, and by a huge margin. Sikhs are very cool, very forward thinking (men and women are equal), and that makes them an enemy of Islam.

    I think you are not very well informed so your lies are pretty easy to pick apart.

    I was looking at that to replace my old generator. They are pretty damned good units!

    Ummm, yeah....about that claim... I suggest you do a simple search and then not try that lie again. I have had solar on my home for almost 30 years now. It is a nice backup for when the grid fails due to wind storms etc. My system was once upon a time rated at 10kw, now I get about 2kw on a good day. I have a water wheel which provides the majority of my off grid power, and it is far more reliable, and runs 24/7 to boot.

    Are you senile? It has been posted here many times. Most panels are guaranteed for 20 to 25 years, and that guarantee is that at that point it will still generate at least 80% of it's original rated wattage. Also, if you have a battery, say a Powerwall 2, then you have a backup in the case of grid failure.

    Less than 2 cents per kw/hr.
