Solar: can you picture this?
Posted 20 April 2015 - 12:45 AM
Last year it was the biggest utility in Europe, E.ON,
. . . that announced dramatic plans to effectively
. . . dump its conventional, centralized fossil fuel generation assets in a separate company, and
. . . focus instead on distributed generation, including solar, storage, and micro-grids.
This year, it is NRG, the biggest generation company in the USA,
. . . is NOT considering divesting fossil fuels any time soon,
. . . but it is looking at distributed generation, including solar, storage, micro-grids, and electric vehicles.

Get 12 months' worth of your homes power bills, to determine the appropriate system size.
How much should you expect to pay?
Solar is often priced on a per watt basis.
. . . $3.00/watt would mean that you would pay:
. . . $3,000 for 1000 watts, or
. . . $12,000 for 4000 watts.
When looking over a bid from a solar contractor,
. . . be sure that you are not paying more than,
. . . about $4.00/watt on roof mounted standard panels.
If you choose to install a ground mounted system, or
. . . add batteries you might expect to pay more.

. . . Lowering conventional electricity market prices, due to reduced demand.
. . . By using FREE renewable fuel, rather than variably-priced fossil fuels
. . . Avoiding centralized costs to build, operate and maintain, generation, transmission, and distribution.
. . . Reducing outages due to a more reliable, distributed electric power system
. . . Reducing future costs of mitigating the environmental impacts of generation
. . . Enhancing tax revenues associated with local job creation,
. . . . . . which is higher for solar than conventional power generation
