mid-Michigan. we get cloudy weather for weeks/months at a time. last month i think we saw the sun maybe 4 times the whole month and not for full sunny days, i mean seeing any kind of blue sky or sunshadow... we call the sun "The UFO" this time of the year as a joke. i'm sure the solar panels work somewhat even when it is cloudy, but for solar hot water it would be a bummer to have to rely upon it completely. the well water here is very cold.Bug, where is your general area location?

Exactly correct, ROI on Solar Hot water is about three years compared to 15 years for photovoltaics. They both qualify for 30% Federal income tax credit. The Hot water panels are about 5 times as efficient at converting solar energy to heat energy(hot water). If you have radiant floors it's really a great idea.before adding solar panels for electricity make sure to plan and install solar hot water with that so that you can get an even quicker return on the investment.
this is something that should be mentioned far more than it is IMO... as anyone doing a solar panel installing kind of business i think it would be a very logical addition/expansion.Exactly correct, ROI on Solar Hot water is about three years compared to 15 years for photovoltaics.

It would an expensive project to bring solar into Bullfrog and NPS and Aramark already have a hard time just upgrading the marinas or marking hazards in the main channel.Bullfrog/North Lake is the area that needs a large solar array, instead of trying to make power from expensive diesel generators. Lack of power has been a limiting factor to the development of the North Lake area for 50+ years.
See how California exports all their unpleasantries to us so they can claim they are environmentally friendly? ALL these birds will be killed outside of California. The terrible eyesore that mars the view for this project will not be in California. ALL of the power generated (100%) of the IPP (massive coal fired generator near Delta) is exported to California. How much US tax payers dollars are being to subsidized this project?there is a small wind project that is being build in wyoming by denver's Phil Anchutz. All of the permitting has been done in the past 10 years, & I believe roads & construction are taking place now. All the power will go to california. Anchutz calculates his current cost for a KW is 4.3 cents, & anticipates a KW will drop to 2.3cents. He ultimately states his project will produce 12Billion Kwh per year. This comes from close to 1000 turbines. I believe the transmission lines are being built or have been mostly built. It will be the countries largest by far when it is completed in 2025. It will be built & all the heavy lifting(permitting) has been done already. Wyoming has some of the best wind in the world.
