Im all on board for one reason.
My local power company jacked the prices up so bad because their the only game in town, and I cant STOMACH spending nearly $300 a month in the winter for electricity and being told "well we wont fix your power line until date X"
only way solar energy can be made to work in cost and resource effective way are solar tubes that heat hot water
my mate installed one of those ages ago, stull runs OK without issues, electric panel would have to be replaced twice in that time
he gets hot domestic water spring to autumn and some suplementary heating on colder days
only in winter he uses wood burning furnace to add more heat
there are also cheap systems that run AC using hot water but not popular here because we need heating a lot more

You cannot get out of the system. The same happened with electric cars. They were causing wear and tear on the roads, but not paying the gas tax, so now those types of cars get taxed more.
They add idealized electricity production over 15 years with no dust and cell degradation and zero repairs against an I flayed regular roof price.
Realistically it costs 3-5 times as much and you are forced to sell excess electricity for fractions of a penny to the energy company instead of getting market prices. Repairs cost about 10 times as much as regular roofing.
High altitude tethered balloons with solar panels could generate much more power due to them being above the clouds and there is also less atmosphere, making the solar panels more effective.
High altitude balloons would also provide superb comunication abilities.
The only reason everyone don't have their own propeller actuated tethered spaceballoon is because of the potential millitary capabilities of such balloons.
not political, musk lies constantly about shit that's supposedly just around the corner, tesla's build qualities are shit, and solar city roofs burned down a bunch of businesses using them. shill somewhere else, muskite
nuclear energy is by far the best and cheapest solution with the least amount of pollution all things considered especially the newer Thorium reactors. of course it requires government investment but so do the subsidies that go to "green" energy.
Even Michael Moore has understood that green energy is a mirage. There's no such thing it's all smoke and mirrors. It's one big subsidy scam.
Nothing about those tiles or battery is green in their production, in their components and their price is ridiculous.
That said I'd still place them if I could because being energy independent is a good thing from an individual perspective because all those green initiatives are going to raise your electricity costs as it did in Germany.
