Its way cheaper to just add more panels. At 39 cents per watt plus mounting costs it makes no sense unless you do not have the room to mount all the panels you need. I run my electronics lab and whole house on solar and it works well. 7KW of panels is plenty for most people that have a normal home. After that the other factor is power storage. Buy Edison batteries for a lifetime of storage.

There is always one thing you can say about weather. It's always changing. So far there is no warming and to be honest there is cooling. IF you believe the cooked climate books the governments and others are trying to force feed you you have real issues.

The US of A has NEVER been a Democracy, Our founding fathers knew that a Democracy was not the way to do proper government and framed what we are today called a Constitutional Republic. What we have now is a twisted mess of a government that is controlled by the money not the people that it was intended to be controlled by.
