I have done more research than work on solar.
What I know now is that battery technology is 10 years behind.
If your looking for the payback its going to take YEARS.....

If you looking to be green and live in the sticks it might be worth it.

About 20 years to see a return on investment...

I have a couple 150W solar panels and four 95Ah gell-cell batteries I use when camping.
