Technomadia discusses solar power

The technomadia folks posted a long article on solar power, with an extensive comparison of rigid vs. flexible panels. Very informative. See it here.

Thank you for the link. Chris and Cheri (Technomadia) are some of the smartest, most sincere and thoughtful (and fun!) young people I've met in a long time. I wish I had the time to follow their blog on a more regular basis.
Our pv installation on our Oliver is patterned after their 2008 installation on their Oliver, though ours is a sidemount. We followed their careful, and thoughtful, research when selecting our components, and have been very happy with the results for the last 6 years with our pv system on our trailer. We rarely camp with power, and rarely need to connect the gen set.
I'm very happy for them that they can enjoy life on the road at an early age. I hope our paths will cross again one of these days. It's been too long.
When we selected our grid-tied pv system for our land home last year, we also eliminated the flexible panels from the choices available.

A very interesting read. If you are thinking of owning flexible solar panels you should read about their experiences. FYI, flexible panels are a relatively new style of panel that is not rigid, it can literally be rolled up for portability. Used on a roof these panels mount directly to the roof surface and do not require the metal mounting system of a rigid panel.

Sherry. I would like to know more about your grid tied PV system for your home. Are you pleased with the savings price ratio?
