  • Do solar panels efficency degrade only while they are actively capturing energy? March 2, 2021
    I have quite a few spare panels I'm storing along with older panels I inherited from the previous owner. I'm curious if efficiency degradation only happens when they are placed in the sun and having power pulled from them? submitted by /u/KidA001 [link] [comments]

  • How does Powerhome keep expanding? March 2, 2021
    Genuine question - I just saw this article: https://solarbuildermag.com/news/powerhome-solar-opening-two-new-offices-now-serving-12-states/ and I am just baffled... how do they keep selling so much solar and expanding their footprint? Their business model (selling small PV systems paired with small Generac battery systems for ~$10/watt) seems incredibly unsustainable, like surely there are tons of people defaulting on their loans […]

  • I'm just starting to look into Solar and I got a quote from Moxie March 2, 2021
    I have been lurking here a few days and I don't see much mention of them. I'm learning and planning but probably won't pull the trigger until January 2022 - a lot of learning to do yet. It looks like the quote they gave me was north of $6 KWh if I understood the math […]

  • Installers don't seem to carry the battery I want to base my system around. March 2, 2021
    I want to do a DC tie-in with the Fortress eVault 18.5kWh. The panels I'm being quoted seem good (Panasonic VBHN340SA17 HIT+ or REC REC365AA Alpha) so I have no issues with those but I'm getting a little confused on the microinverters vs. string inverters. The eVault only supports a limited number of inverters but […]

  • What is the purpose of a dealer fee? March 2, 2021
    Confused as to what exactly a dealer fee pays for. I understand that it adds ~25% on to the cost of a loaned system, but what is this for in the first place? Is this just how the financing company makes money on each system sold by an independent dealer on top of the interest? […]

  • Tesla or Solar Edge? March 1, 2021
    Hi there, I recently get a $2.2/w quote from a local installer for a 5.44kw system with Q cell+ Solar Edge. More or less close to what Tesla can give. So far as I know Tesla doesn’t use optimizers, which may not so critical to me as my roof is south facing with no shading. […]
