Thanks. But if (or when) the "Big Quake" hits here and we're
potentially without grid-tie for many _days_, an ability to effectively
DC-trickle-recharge a bunch of small batteries straight from the solar
panels each day, then use that energy that night, or in tools the next
day, could be pretty valuable.

It is the same in Germany, the price goes down to 1,8? per Watt.

Here in Germany you got up to 57.4 Cents/kWh, currently it's 43.01
Cents/kWh, while you have to pay about 20 Cents/kWh.
15 to 20 years is not that much, just about 4.7 to 3.5 % return, if it
really is maintenance free (which it isn't).
So price is too low or too high?
