My electrical consumption is about 400 KW hours per month at 8 cents but the administration portion is double the electrical cost. My kilowatts cost around 19 cents each. After doing the math, it will take 50 years to make sense where I live. I pay Google $12 a month for no ads. I am feeling cheated with DEpostrs that feed me ads on useless products.

You're going find out the hard way that the batteries need to be replaced 3 to 5 years and you're going have maintenance cost on your sinewave inverter at a hefty cost. Realistically your looking at 8 to 10 years just to break even. Not worth it only save bout 4k over 20 years, a bond would been a better choice.

@JerrRigEverything: first, you put them in yourself but I see a tiny army of help, so that is very nice! 2nd, my neighbor is all about the Green, save the planet thing BUT are not solar panels produced using fossil fuels? (like phones, TVs, even the plastic for computers and cars with "batteries" in them?). My personal big concern is will it pay off before they go bad and when they do go bad, like wind turbines, how long will they sit in a landfill before they are broken down and not more toxic than what we are using now? If you know great if not, ok. Also a big thank you for doing a follow-up video, that is just wonderful.

I would build a carport over where you park your truck and a covering over your driveway and put up more panels. And if lumber is too expensive, It would be easy to do with steel and it would never be replaced, since most steel roofs have a 30 year warranty to match the panels' warranty (plus it's just your truck and driveway underneath, who cares if it leaks eventually?).

A couple of years ago a buddy of mine looked into financing a system but he said it wouldn't be worth it. We live north of Tupelo, MS but he's got a lot of trees across the street that shade his house. Another thing I realized, whenever your power rates are increased, you'll save even more money and earn even more night time power from your system.

In a temperate climate like the middle latitudes of the U.S. are the best places for solar. If you have to produce much more output for increased heat or cold, solar won't be able to keep up. The more extreme the environment, the more solar falls behind hydrocarbons. You could get the same results by producing electricity with a parabolic closed system mirror water boiler. But, just like solar, when the sun goes away, you're done. Your best bet at production is harnessing wave energy from the sea or nuclear. Waves are consistent. Only maintenance is replacing parts rusted by seawater. Solar, wind, whatever, shouldn't be labeled "alternative", it should be called "supplemental". The real advancements will have to be in batteries and harnessing lightning in batteries to provide supplemental energy. Nuclear is still the way to go and stop looking at it like the boogy man.

The city of Los Angles DWP only pays wholesale cost to you for power back to the grid. About 1 or 2 cents per KWH. Question: I have a over built 50 X 20' steel roof patio facing South could the panels be mounted on the patio and tilted up towards the sun? I do not want them on my house roof.

In italy the government gives you an incentive of 110% as tax reduction for solar power, insulation and energy efficency jobs for your home. Meaning that if you spent 10k€ for a solar panels, you'll get 11k€ back in 5 years as tax reduction

This is so different to UK. We meter your production with a inline meter. Then you get payed for half your production at a feed in tariff rate which is higher than the cost we buy electric in at. So if you can use more than 50% you produce your winning.

I don't understand anyone who looks at solar as a good investment. If I take the same $13000 and buy ATT stock who currently pay 6.72% in dividends and reinvest the earnings, after 30 years I will have $91478.25. You will have a very old solar system.

The only thing you forgot to mention is that the utility doesn't pay back at 10 cents a kilowatt. It is substantially less. And just so you know if you put panels on the north side of your roof you still make substantial energy they're on my house and increased my kilowatt per day by four or six average, so it doesn't go to waste.

1 year is just a blip in 20 years of data. People shouldn't get excited if anyone gets good or bad result during a particular year of service. So this video is very useless for the timebeing. What you really wanted to hear about are actions taken to futureproof his investment: (1) My solar water heater panels are covered with a tempered glass to protect against hailstorm and all screws used are Inox. What is the level of protection for electricity generating solar panels? (2) If just one panel suffers an issue or gets shaded, the other panels in series with it will suffer in terms of production (sometimes your App can tell you which series of panels are under-producing so you can go to the roof and check for the faulty one (rusty connectors?)). You can rectify this drop in production by using diodes and make each individual panel by-passable (so not just diodes preventing backflow of current from battery to panels at night).
