me trouble...  I'd like a better one please. :-)


Kelly that one offhanded comment has my full and undivided attention.  I
have always assumed any rooftop PV system is pay the initial cost, install,
forget.  Now you have me worried.  Do feel free to elaborate in arbitrary
detail.  Did you keep records on what went wrong when, and how much it cost
to fix, and did you personally have the tech expertise to repair it
yourself, or did you need to call in proles to help?  

I have a friend who is installing a hundred kWh peak on a ranch in Oregon to
run pumps.  I am concerned, his brother is worried, he is terrified.
