I agree.  If it were hot water, it would be a waste of effort to heat it.

They're hardly ever good value where mains power is available.


Very over priced basically.


They do work, lousy value tho.


Really depends on how long you go without sun.


No, not if its sized properly to the use of hot water.

Then that would be completely stupid.

The frogs generate a lot of their mains power from nukes,
so it makes no sense to be minimising the use of that.

It is in fact the most sensible way to generate power today
and any solar system will waste more resources in the
construction of the solar system. In spades with a relatively
high tech approach to solar like the one being discussed.

Yes it would indeeed, since the same amount of money spent on more effective
means of energy efficiency would reduce energy requirements by a greater amount
( with better attendant benefits on carbon load )

I should have said 'perceived virue' really.


Yup. Concentrate on insulation first. I'll bet there's some room for
improvement.
