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.

How durable are those panels? I feel like if there's a severe storm or, even worst, a hail storm or a hurricane can crack those panels.

They could handle hail I would assume. Hurricanes on the other hand. One of the most powerful forces on Earth. You'd be lucky if your house survives a direct hit let alone the solar panels. Warranty maybe? ha. Thanks anyways.

eh, personaly i prefere cold weather to hot. my logic being it's way easier to warm up from the cold, just a matter of adding layers and turning up the heating. but when its hot, theres only so many layers you can remove before you start bleeding. plus, scotland in snow is proper nice to look at.

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.

If you own a house though, you can pay for installation of solar panels and not only will you not have to pay electricity bills again (if you generate enough, which you probably will), but also the National Grid will BUY the excess juice from you, and pay YOU for any power you don't use that month. After about 10 years or so, you can often make a lot more than what you paid for the installation, and the value adds onto the house.

Two points for consideration with it though

1) Can you afford the installation? It's a business risk like any other really

2) Is your house going to benefit from it? Solar panels can actually be interrupted by street lights and busy streets (don't ask why, I wouldn't think they would block out the sun...?) Also how much power do you use and are you going to save enough money for it to be worth it

They're not renewable and are expensive as **** to produce

You raise a valid point that under normal circumstances would be valid to the argument, but we all know that Jimmy fallon there only uses his fans to buy his icecream so that he can run to the bank off the misfortunes of others. He is no true patriot to the state.

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.

Here in Colorado, USA, we get at least 300 days of sunshine a year and usually people who have solar panels actually get paid to have them because they dont use all the electricity it makes.
