  - 10% in 20 years -- that sounds quite doable  Dogmudgeon   Mar-10-10 11:31 PM   #1 
  - Wow!!! That's Amazing!!!!! In 1976, the Dangerous Fossil Fuel Executive Amory Lovins Predicted  NNadir   Mar-10-10 11:34 PM   #2 
  - What we really need is a cheap, simple to install solar panel that can produce 220v at about 50 amps  OmahaBlueDog   Mar-10-10 11:49 PM   #3 
     - What we really need is a sense of reality.  NNadir   Mar-11-10 12:09 AM   #4 
     - Um... 220v @ 50 amps = 11,000 watts or 11kw peak AC  Statistical   Mar-11-10 07:40 AM   #5 
     - Please forgive my optimism and ignorance  OmahaBlueDog   Mar-11-10 06:03 PM   #6 
        - Well PV installed right now with no subsidies is about $3 to $5 per watt.  Statistical   Mar-11-10 06:10 PM   #7 
           - OK, what kind of square footage are we talking  OmahaBlueDog   Mar-11-10 07:37 PM   #8 
              - Well that is the magic question.  Statistical   Mar-11-10 08:05 PM   #11 
                 - $1 a watt wouldn't be as cheap as I proposed, but it'd be pretty close  OmahaBlueDog   Mar-11-10 08:30 PM   #13 
                    - Why do you think you need 13KW? 13KW is a massive array.  Statistical   Mar-11-10 08:37 PM   #14 
                       - I just know every air conditioner I ever owned was a 220v system with a 50 amp breaker  OmahaBlueDog   Mar-11-10 08:48 PM   #15 
                          - Oh. Well thanks to the magic of net metering you can get away with half that.  Statistical   Mar-11-10 09:03 PM   #16 
     - That "simple to install" solar panel would be 36 feet on a side.  TheWraith   Mar-11-10 07:49 PM   #9 
        - In Florida or Texas, that wouldn't necessarily scare me.  OmahaBlueDog   Mar-11-10 07:58 PM   #10 
           - And it would cost about $30,000. nt  TheWraith   Mar-11-10 08:19 PM   #12
