I have read about these systems and like the Hydrogen booster for increasing gas mileage that I introduced in another thread, there is so much crap out there that it's hard to tell what's valid and what isn't. Kind of like trading system vendors.
I read up on this a couple years ago and the basic conclusion was that it didn't pay for itself. Time to recoup your investment was at best about the same as the life expectancy of the equipment. Also, I live where there is both constant wind and 300+ days of sunshine per year, and pretty much nobody has it here. I think if it made sense, then people would do it. There is a huge potential market for cheap solar energy, so it's not as if they aren't working on it, but I would wait 10 years or so for the technology to justify it.

I was out in Vegas a few months ago (Henderson) and was wondering why i wasn't seeing solar panels all over the place. I know that electrical costs are pretty significant when you have two story house with two sets of air conditions, not to mention the pool and outdoor jacuzzi. Las vegas and in fact all of Nevada seem pretty ripe for good solar panel conditions but like I said, i didn't see hardly any evidence of use.

We have a company in Lubbock TX that does the solar installations and from what I can tell their system is doing very well. However, the the electric company that services my address will not allow solar installation. I will have to move in and be serviced by another company in order to get out from under that restriction.
