    Are you deliberately bypassing the Green mindset? Deploying solar cells isn’t about efficiency; it’s about showing your piety. Matt. 6:1-4 and all that.

    The solar cells could be 100% efficient and cheap as asphalt roofing. They still won’t produce any energy more than half of the time. Further, the times you need energy the most — in the winter months — they will produce energy only about a third of the day. That is why they will never be economical. Research on solar is wasted money.
