Wish solar would take off here, but the (government) poco is not friendly to it whatsoever.
Nor does the Canadian sunshine!Wish solar would take off here, but the (government) poco is not friendly to it whatsoever.
I've looked at the generator to pv thing kind of because a bunch of my customers asked me for it when I put in their pv system. So far as I know which I admit is not so much, the generator sine wave does not trick the inverters , they know the diff between that and the poco power, and the pv backfeeding a generator is not healthy for the generator when the sun power current exceeds the customer's load. But there are companies working on those problems.Any idea what the installed retail price is per watt or kw? If the power goes out, does the system shut off? If you have a back up generator will the system come back or stay offline?
We're really busy which is great. The work can be repetitive but it was a welcome change after doing commercial/industrial for the last 13 years.
It all depends on how much of the cost someone else pays for.wildleg said:somebody give me some numbers on how long it takes the customer to pay off the installation. (nice pics by the way) I've run the numbers a few times over the last 10 yrs and I don't see where it pays. If the life of the equipment is 15 yrs, it doesn't seem to pay at all. (mid Atlantic east)
The third picture from the last looks like saddle back mountain?Don't see a lot happening in this section..
Here are some random pics of some of our jobs. I get to take in some pretty cool views from atop the roof sometimes.
We work on some really nice homes out here in So. Cal. Some just steps from the beach or on a private lake.

You may be right. The pic was taken from a home in Coto De Caza. Where the "Houswives of Orange County" is filmed.The third picture from the last looks like saddle back mountain?
