I'm here because of a "Sungod" moderator(who reportedly works in the industry) at another forum, who continuosly post bad and erronious information about solar. I found I spent much of my time explaining to people that yes there was net metering, that solar electric was more than 90% reliable, etc.
While I don't always agree with them, I respect and apprieciate their time and effort at this forum. Lets be sure to mention Northern Arizona Wind and Sun for sponsering this forum! I'll be ordering some new Water Miser caps, from them, as soon as I verify my new forklift battery has the same type cap.

Your complaint about there being unscrupulous people in the RE business is entirely valid. The number of times we've exposed such shysters on this forum is mind-boggling. We also know there are installers that take advantage. But tell me; can you name even one industry about which the same isn't true?

"Incentives" are a political,bureaucratic trap for those that somehow
believe a free lunch is to be had.Incentives,in the end benefit the creators
and enslave the supposed beneficiaries,as is evident by this discussion.
If one demands a free ride,don't expect to be holding the steering wheel.
Grid tie systems are technically very interesting and a cool solution,but
the bureaucratic back half of the animal is too ugly to bear for those
of us that like to maintain their own steerage.
I built my functional,safe off grid system for as low a cost as system
integrity,and quality would allow.If I had involved anyone in the chain
of the "solar installation" industry/bureaucracy cabal,I would have to
give up any expectation of economic conservation or design freedom.

They have to keep it civil because in the end
the main purpose of this forum being here is to sell products,and that makes the fine
line even finer.
So I guess the best way is just keep it technical,and emulate Mr. Spock best you
can so everyone can benefit from the knowledge at hand and Wind & Sun can
maximize it's revenue.
