A little bit of programming magic lets Curt keep tabs on his PV array and inverter output via the Web.

The Big Payback

So far, my PV system has produced more than 4 megawatt-hours of electricity, and knocked close to $900 off my electric bills. Originally, I'd predicted a ten- to twelve-year financial payback for my PV investment. After living with the system for awhile, it looks like I may end up on the high side of my original estimate. But even if it does take twelve years for the system to offset its original cost, my modules are warranted to generate electricity for another thirteen years, and will likely continue to do so for fifteen or more years beyond that. After the twelve-year mark, it's all free electricity. And that'll be right around the time I'll be thinking about retirement. Perfect.
