They are actually very close to the EST figures - I suggest you read
their report before jumping to ill informed conclusions.


It was you who said you used the EST as a source of information, are
you saying their report was wrong? If so on what figures do you base
that presumption? Do you do the "ethically correct" thing and inform
your clients that according to the EST they will never even break
even on a commercial active solar system?

I am well aware that facts and figures are something most peddlers of
alternate energy hate more than anything else, and for good reason,
but if you have credible alternative sources please tell us what they
are.

It is those who try and ridicule "alternate energy" who appear to be
the ones who dislike figures. Some of these are people who tried
"alternate energy" at an earlier stage of its development and now
attack it with the zeal of a reformed smoker attacking smoking.

You appear to be asserting that anyone with "enough experience" will
be against "alternate energy". If that is the case then it is an
interesting assertion, but a false one.

I've taken an active interest in the subject since about 1972.

I've yet to see any example of  'alternative energy generation' make as much as
an
ounce of financial sense for anyone 'on-grid'. Every single time, it'll be
massively outperformed by equivalent energy efficiency and insulation measures
when
total energy requirements are examined truthfully.
