I just read the post on the solar / wind powered walmart. Wouldn't it be more of a story if walmart actualy stocked solar products?(solar powered garden gnomes don't count!)It seems to me that the real breakthrough in PV will be when a system costs less than my house!!!!! (or even my car.)I have been pondering this issue today since I read an article in HOME POWER MAGAZINE on solar shingles . I wanted to hear more about these so I searched out Daystar and Unisolar on the net. MY GOD THESE ARE EXPENSIVE!!!!!!!Don't these companies realise that at $12 per watt only NASA can aford their products? PV is good technology, it is not new,it is not untested, and for practical purposes it dose not exist! I have been researching this subject in depth for a year now and still dont understand why PV is not more wide spread.I am also baffled by the appathy of the manufacturers in this industry.So here is my question . How long will it be before I can buy 2K of PV panels with all necesary hardware for a grid intertie at Home depot or(gasp) Walmart?????????????????????????
