Anyone Doing Solar?


Not sure which specific category this belongs to, but we are considering selling and installing solar panels. We do have some experience with the sales process. Any GCs here do any solar?

Re: Anyone Doing Solar?


You missed the golden years for this. It will taper off as the net energy agreements do not offer enough incentive.

It is possible the price decrease of solar products will negate the NEM no longer being attractive.

I think we all need to move towards solar, sustainable energy. But the time to get into it was about 4 years ago, those companies who did are solid now.

Tesla just put the "testing the waters" ad out 1-2 days ago that they might be selling to Home Depot & Lowes.

Combination solar cell & power wall packages.

Only charges the inverter battery, no extra mileage from it.

Wouldn't it be lumens per ampere?
