you'd be suprised. theyre actualy fairly common in my home town. i suppose they eventualy pay for themselves cause we do sometimes get days in the spring and summer were it's just really ******* sunny and hot for like, an entire week before the **** weather breaks back through.

yeah, summer was a pretty good week this year. I was stuck in a kitchen working most of it but it was a nice week.

I would love to buy some solar panels for my house but the cost of purchasing installation and renovation would bankrupt me before I saw the turnaround of long term financial benefits for their efficiency.

Well I live in America so all the costs would come out of pocket for me.
But any energy we dont use can be sold back to the power plants for quite a bit if i've heard correctly.

solar panels are a terrible form of energy, I thought

They're not renewable and are expensive as **** to produce
User avatar #76 to #66 - robertolee (11/17/2013) [-]
Not renewable? You sure about that?

"on a good day i can almost power an LED with nothing but solar energy"~ that home owner

Solar panels take the energy from Daylight not direct sunlight. If you can see, then there is the presence of light. It does not have to be a sunny day for them to work.
They generate electricity for the household and any excess energy is fed back into the main power grid. The grid then pays the 0wner for their contribution by something called the feed in tarrif.

Once again the populace of Funnyjunk shows how much of an asshole you can really be. I thumbed you up to put you back at 0. You were thumbed down for seemingly no reason. I guess saying that you didn't enjoy the joke is a big no-no these days.

Took me a moment. This is why I am not allowed outside alone.

- Those panels are in the ideal pitch range. Much better than what I see in Australia where I live.
- Due to the rainfall the panels will get cleaned regularly. Whereas again in Australia the panels get dusty and caked in dirt thanks to the ****** roofs, angle and climate/weather pattens.
- Panels still get decent throughput in overcast/sun lacking skies.
- The amount of installs I've seen where the panels are just shaded by surrounding trees and plopped on by birds sitting on the antennas/aerials placed right next to them. None of that there.


... I won't say solar isn't worth it in England but I will say **** trying to make it in selling and especially ******* installing the stuff in England. O_o

Solar panels don't need direct sunlight to produce energy.

There are solar panels on a whole load of houses here in Wales. Seems pretty pointless since we get no sun. Sunshine is a rarity even in the summer.
