I decider to go with Vivint solar over Solar city who in 2013 refused to adjust issues with their contract at that time. We used 15kw of eletric and had a 13kw system install...

    Having these folks give a pitch about a zero cost (?) roof top solar system. Any experience, things to be wary of, or competitors?

    This is not your usual weather forecast. Big storms are brewing. Your umbrella won't help, but you might want to keep a flashlight handy. These storms are coming from the sun. It's raining down a huge amount of radiation. We're safe, but it could affect power grids, radios and satellites...

    Any thoughts on how good, or not, solar powered outdoor lights are now? A few years ago I wouldn't even consider it, but not sure if they have come far enough for consideration instead of running line to an eave or other location. Also, in the event of power outage there is an obvious...

    In 2 weeks I have a solar consultant coming to the house. I'm thinking of going all solar instead of the generator route (although I will have a small generator for backup). Anyone have first hand solar experience to share?
