All I did was ask questions. What brand are these panels? If I were to go buy these panels, at retail cost, what is the price today? If they are guaranteed until 2035 and the yearly maintenance is low, then you got a great deal.

Wrong. Using up natural gas or coal for running an electric production facility leave a huge carbon foot print. Why do you think the EPA is trying to have Texas close all the coal fired plants?

By making solar mandatory, many will not be able to afford a new house. That's about 15000 added to the price. How long does it take to break even? Isn't it an environmental problem for disposal of solar panels?

Screwed if you do and if you don't.

Carbon footprints are what Al Gore invented and I'm damn glad he did. Until he came along, none of us knew how awful we all are in polluting the environment and raping the land. I personally have given up beer for lent to help combat the problem because methane in the atmosphere is deadly, in more ways than one.

It's not a matter or breaking even only. You also have to consider the other expenses of solar, such as phone calls, mileage, insurance. Also, I never have to worry about my electricity going out at night when the sun goes down. Plus I have battery back up on all my important appliances, etc. I'm sticking with good, old-fashioned American electric. Ben Franklin invented it, you know.
You must have gotten your masters out of a cracker Jack box you pendejo. Someone should put their carbon footprint upside your fat culo you pendejo.

Thanks a million! I'm putting a solarium in my house and I plan to use them as my supplier. As soon as I sell a horse I've been storing, I will have the money to do this so I can become energy efficient and rub it in the face of all these tea partiers too.

Your home is a barn? It is illegal to have farm animals in your house unless you actually live in a barn, which by your manners and attitude you do anyway.

Not to worry - I don't follow the laws as they are too confining. I keep the horse in a spare bedroom that we have.

All you pro solar great wish I could also funds are short at the present time. Hey question do they still give tax breaks for solars energy? One good things I would guess is there are no electrical rate increases right? So if the owners of the electric companies want to increase their rates who cares right? You just tell them no thank you I don't need your services right? or are you forced to hook up to their grid system even if you don't use 1 watt of their electric.
