Folks,
Like many of you, I have installed a set of solar panels at home in May 2012. While we do not have the wall-to-wall sinshine un Northern Scotland as that people living in warmer climates do, our experience so far has been very good. Our installed capacity (8 panels) is about 2kw. The past few months have seen a lot of rain and cloudy days, but over a 3-month period, it has generated about 600 kwh, meeting about half our needs.
In the UK, there are incentives offered that makes such installations economically attractive. The investment yields a return of about 6-7%, something hard to get these days in the market. We are also leaving a smaller carbon footprint.
In germany, there is an entire town that is now energy neutral.
I invite readers to share their experiences on this subject.
