Yeah, it is free enterprise!! Can we go way too far on this ? Is Earth dying before our own eyes ? Does quality of life really matter? Do we understand it or what? What is God all about ? Do smokers really have the right to blow smoke into our faces on streets? Should we put them back indoors so... More

  • Supersize Rooftop Solar Installations ? 0 comments
    Aug 19, 2013 11:40 AM | about stocks: SCTY, RGSE, SPWR

    There had been a recent takeover rash of private rooftop solar installment companies by public companies like Real Goods Solar, Solar City among others. I sometimes wonder about their business model like lease arrangements .

    I wonder why they don't offer to replace the entire rooftop including the rafters , etc with customized ready to install solar rooftops that use every square footage of available perimeter of the house itself. Why piggyback on shaky roofs made of lumber and asphalt or ceramic tiles? If it is a flat roof paved with asphalt , fine, tear 'em up and put in more attractive solar soaking roof designs

    Solar rooftop companies can use aluminum structures to hold solar panels in place . They will last forever. All we need to do is to replace failed solar panels with new ones like we do with asphalt tiles , anyway. Why limit rooftop installments to something like 4 or 5 kilowatts? An average rooftop can produce thrice, four or five times as much solar electricity if the entire roof is soaking in the sunlight instead of a portion of it.

    I think present rooftop solar installations I see around here is not attractive to look at. I prefer to see total rooftop solar installments in beautiful designed configurations.

    why settle with only 10-15% off lease agreements while you can be a total solar farmer with oodles of juice to sell back to your utility after all your electricity needs is met. You either own it or make solar installation companies offer you much better deals than what you can get today.

    Think for yourselves first, them last! Electricity prices is steadily going up and it is no brainer to maximize your solar power. Got a rooftop get rich fast!

    Disclosure: I am long RSOL.
