solar panels are not expensive enough, now lets add the cost of a carport. And 5.9 to 10.5 kw?? Really? Thats more than a home needs, except of course when there is no sun, like first thing in the morning. So what next, storage?
Commercial rooftops is where solar should be placed, like on coffee shops. Sign a deal with all those starbucks out there. They are using elec. during the day. They could do the rooftop or carport. I put some of their panels on my coffee shop in southern california. Got a 10-yr business loan. The monthly cost is the same as the money I shaved off my monthly elec. bill due to peak charges (southern cal is a rip off in the summer on elec rates). So payback was instant. Did not cost me a dime out of pocket.
Why are these guys not promoting the daylights out of this right now? The total boys are going to buy up all the shares to save the cost of reporting and compliance. Not sure when, but this year.
