Uk Solar Power Experiment

    Happy New Year.
    Solar Power - the way forward?
    NATS (in Hampshire) have a installed some experimental solar panels.
    On the 26th of July at 13:00 the panels were running at a real world maximum output of only 7Kwatts.
    The payback time is just tooooo long.
    In the UK the panels just don't output sufficient electricity and are just too expensive to be considered a viable solution.......unfortunately.
    Perhaps they will obey Moore's law and double their efficiency every 2 years whilst halving their price.

      Yes, its a long way to go. At least, they give a hard try.

      Happy new year my friend!

      About the Moore's law thing, some people are saying that we've already reached the bottom for price :( $1 per Watt

      The contrast is truly remarkable. As to solar cell efficiency, they really get more cost appropriate. If someone is interested in diy home solar panels, then feel free to check out my blog.
