    So now we want to out panels on ageing buildings. What is the maintenace cost for removal and roof cleaning every so often?

    • Chris smith says:

      Minimal costs. In fact, if the roof or at least the areas that are getting panels are properly painted first, then the panels don’t need to be removed for recoating the roof for at least three recoats.

    If you think they are gonna save money with Solar I have property to sell you on the Moon. Please wake up!!

    • Chris smith says:

      Why wouldnt they save money?? Especially now that its about $55c a kilowatt??
      Businesses accumulate the bulk of their electricity costs during the day when solar works.
      If the system is matched to the buildings daytime consumption, ROI is under 5 years. The systems will still be running 25 years from now. The savings from not paying for most of the electricity used over 25 years is phenomenal.
