Is that a fancy pants way of saying the ROI is better?
Like 30 years instead of 50?
Is that all you got ???

Yes, lets end free "gubamint" money. Including all the tax breaks and kickbacks for oil companies.

No, but 30 year ROI is a pretty good way to eliminate any benefit.
Is that all you've got, semi-literate one?

Well numb nuts I beg to differ with your rebuttal on the 30 year
ROI.... In the North East the actual ROI on a residential 4 kWh
system professionally installed is 20 to 25 years and that's
assuming you're paying cash and not financing which would add
approximately another 3 years before you would see a profit...

Now since most people don't have $35,000 in their back pockets
to piss away on solar energy, try finding a bank willing to jump
on the Al Gore band wagon.....

Add to this the warranty that expires just as you're about to see your ROI.....

Average full days of sun in Burlington, Vermont "58", not a figure pulled from my ass.... No sun, No power.......

So I guess that would make you full of shit now wouldn't it!!!!!!

Nope....your still the one that smells. The ROI depends on the usage and you have no way to determine that except on a case by case energy audit. Averages mean nothing in the real world unless you only study statistics. Since i don't live in Vermont that means less than nothing.

Holy shit, we have another McNutt on our hands....
Findings from a case by case energy audit give you "Averages"
peckerhead, not definitive usage as nobody can predict the
absolute volume from Mr Sun.... I suggest you contact our friend

Averages in energy studies really mean nothing if you are talking about home use. They can be deceiving and lead to false conclusions.
