I have been getting enough questions from the blog readers and neighbors that it is time to do a frequently asked questions list.  I have divided the common questions into four groups: practical questions, financial questions, technology questions, project questions and philosophical questions.  Here is the master list of questions:

  1. How much exactly is your project? Are you using the Sunpower AC micro-inverter panels? What is your system exact specifications? Could you give us your business analysis?

      Jack: Thanks for your note. Who is “us” as in “Could you give us your business analysis?” I did not use micro inverters – SunPower does not yet have micro inverters powerful enough to work with the 240W panels (though they just bought a company and will have them on the market soon). Instead I have five strings of about 7-10 panels each. I thought I spelled out the business specifics pretty thoroughly in the various economic and financial posts listed here: http://scratchpaperblog.com/2011/10/the-solar-project-table-of-contents/. Let me know if you have other questions not adequately addressed in one of the posts. Thanks for reading!
