Agree. The payback for me to do solar is 15 years. As of now, the panels rarely last that long. I figure we're doing the early home computer adoption thing and solar is at the Windows 3.1 stage. Useful for some but have to religiously backup files, know DOS and be ready to completely reload everything every few weeks.
Once costs come down more, efficiency quadruples and the panels last longer, then it will make sense for more people.
I wish I had a creek that ran year round on my property. A watermill is the most efficient power source last I checked. Don't have to worry about wind, sunlight etc. Nothing high tech. Basically like the alternator on a car. Easy peasy
