Solar industries Dirty Little Secrets
1) Conventional solar panels lose 3% of their efficiency the moment the new system is activated.
2) When they say "you don't pay for the solar panels, you pay for the solar power....." they are correct. It's called a PPA or power purchase agreement. If you do not consume any power at all, you will still have a solar bill for the power produced by the system.
3) Many PPA solar systems are purposely oversized. This makes the company that owns the system more front loaded money.
4) Not all solar leases are created equal, most have undesirable downsides.
5) Conventional solar does not operate properly , and may shut down on high temperature day.
6) Conventional solar can lose up to 37% of its efficiency in as little as 7-12 years.
7) Conventional solar has efficiency levels of 14-16%. Our solar averages 20%.
