So at the home show today we came across Genesis Energy with a stand advertising solar panels in various packages.
Anyone able to comment in not too technical terminology as to the sense in this proposition?
I've been putting off our own solar installation because I want at least 10kWh of battery storage along with it....and the house isn't built yet that we will install it on. My "perfect" system would be a Tesla (or possibly Monier) solar roof with 30kWh of battery.....so we could run all evening on stored power, including charging the car a bit.
For me, a lot of value in solar is having the power there when the grid fails and there is a black-out. Our life will go on as normal until it comes back on. That is worth a premium to me. I also think if enough of us go solar then we won't have to help fund large, new power projects because they just won't be required.
We did it ourselves, a wee bit at time. All of us. A new government with a real desire to reduce emissions could change a lot of things and make this easier for everyone.
