Attack the source when the numbers don't say what you want them to say. Get real
Pointing facts from the cited material is not an attack. Get real.
I've seen numerous reports from all over the country from dozens of different groups that say solar can be installed without subsidy cheaper than current nuclear and within striking distance of even the cheapest natural gas.
Cite them please.
A 10 year payback is about a 6% ROI. That's a phenominal rate of return. After 10 years you are guaranteed 15 years of free power
Complete nonsense. You have no way of stating any IRR because you do not know: cost of my electric, cost of transmission, credits for feeding back to grid, my total electric use, % of electric use provided by solar, cost of inverter replacement (material and labor).
Every company that made solar panels in the 1980's is still making solar panels.
Every one? You sure? What about mergers? What happens to warranty then? Will you still have the records? Will the company still have the records? Further, the warranty is only good for the original owner. Most people do not live in the same home for 25 years so there is no resale value to that warranty.
How the solar is connected to the grid is entirely dependent on local codes, net metering rules and what equipment is installed.
Yes and? How many localities allow you to still feed the grid during an outage? How many allow an "automatic transfer switch"? And what does installation of such a feature which meets local codes do to your payback period? (other than lengthen it?)
It's so blatant it's almost as if you are a paid sock puppet.
Seems to me you are the one doing the commerical for Pets.com
