Pity about how the industry actually measures the efficiency of PV systems.
Try telling the industry that they havent got a clue about how to
measure it. Dont be too surprised WHEN they laugh in your face

Wasnt even commenting on that stuff that I know already.
I was JUST commenting on the original claim that what isnt
turned into electricity ALL ends up as heat in the PV. Wrong.
Like I said, quite a bit gets reflected and
isnt available as heat to heat the house.
Wrong. What is REFLECTED isnt.
Reams of completely irrelevant crap that has nothing to do with
what was being discussed, whether what falls on the PV system
ALL ends up as electricity or heat, flushed where it belongs.
Not a clue, as always.
<reams of your pig ignorant silly shit flushed where it belongs>

How about reading it again. I said, "the rest of the sun's energy that IS
ABSORBED by the panel IS converted to heat." I throw out the reflected
energy since it is not used in the calculation of efficiency.
Show your work.
Show your work.
This is the only reply you'll get on this Rod. There is no point in arguing
with you because no matter how wrong you are, you intentionally ignore the
facts so that you can stir up shit. Why don't you make an intelligent
assesment? You don't seem totally ignorant of everything, but those things
you comment on that you don't have a clue about, you should be able to admit
when you're wrong. Saying I don't have a clue doesn't address your denial
of my claims, it just shows that you don't have enough information to make
an adequate rebuttal of my argument.
Do us both a favor, and unless you can back up what you say about any
statement I make don't reply to my posts. I'll do the same with yours.

How much? I suspect it's less than 4% at normal incidence.
PVs can collect lots of useful heat.
