  1. How long do you believe it’ll be before solar power will undoubtedly be economical enough for the average man to manage it?

    • Depending on your geographic location is will determain your payback on the PV system. My PV systems are giving my customers a Return (ROI)On Investment back from day one of their installation and their systems can pay for themselves as early as 3 years and up to 7 years. The solar panels I use in my kit will come with a 25 year warranty along with an additional insurance policy that covers the existing warranty. This is to protect my customers from the manufactures going out of business within the next 25 years.
