There's a waiting list? lol
We just had them installed last Wed. Inspected today. Still waiting on power company to switch out our meter.
I'm curious how much others paid
We got a 9.61 kW system with S-Energy panels.
( Estimated 1st year production:13,821 kWh AC )
Final amount before incentives is $36,061.
Fed Tax credit: $9,376.09
Plus a credit of $1,800 to cover first year of payments.
That should put us at about: $24,884.91

Ahhh, I looked at those, but too much $ & I don't think it would generate as much.
They look nice, though

Being almost 10 years removed from working at a solar company, i will say the technology is cool and growing rapidly (kind of like the battery world. The company I worked for provided thin film solar modules, so things like the tiles that you mentioned as well was a thing. The main problem that comes with something like that is the efficiency of the cells. I wouldnt necessarily say you could go off grid if you relied solely on them. I assume you require a reasonable size energy storage device within the home as well if you were trying to go off grid.
For myself, living in beautiful cloudy Michigan, the technology is probably not worth the dime as of this time, but i am a bit out of the loop on the latest innovations of that technology.
