Baloney. Lots of sensible people have spent *more* to have solar
instead of or in addition to a grid connection, for a variety of
reasons. Two of the most common are that a backup supply was desired,
or they expect grid prices to skyrocket.

Wow, that's deep man. Thank you Captain Obvious!

Baloney. I see you have no scientific refutation. PV Solar does make sense
when the grid is so far away it would cost a fortune for a connection
*and* you live in a sunny place ( very variable - see insolation maps ).

If it isn't, use the grid and simply be energy efficient e.g. by property
construction style. Mass production of grid energy is hugely less costly
than micro-generation.

Totally agreed but sadly little promoted.

Why ? Call me a cynic but there's more money to be made in selling allegedly
energy to the gullible that actually costs a fortune both in your pocket and
conceivably environmentally too. Where have all the 'environmental impact
gone ?

As usual, you didn't respond to your own point. You wrote that insults
are "a reliable indicator of losing an argument". And yet *you* insult
people daily, as with your "insane" comment above, which is milder
than usual. Blurting out ill-considered points that you have to run
away from is the inevitable result of posting for quantity rather than

Your other premise is disingenuous. Solar PV can be a well-advised
investment in areas with good insolation and very high grid prices, as
several posters have explained to you.

And, you failed to provide a shred of proof of your other claim (which
you edited out in your typical weasel-style), that people tout PV as a
"panacea". If you see people here doing that, then by all means have
at them. Otherwise, your time would be better spent pondering the
pointlessness of your Usenet existence.


So what? Everybody knows about the value of insulation. Take a look at
the name of the two newsgroups you posted to. People come here to
learn about PV and generating home-scale power. It's probably the last
place they expected to find some PV-hating turd advertising his weak
debating skills and lack of anything better to do with his time.

Wow, you and ghio on the same day. Will you post the times table next?
