Pretty simple then buy an old house without solar! Nobody’s forcing anything on you. Just like 1 hr fire rated drywall. I wanted 10 second rated but because of the “Government” I had to pay for 1 hr. Oh the horror and inconvenience. Stop whining or GTFO. Simple Simpleton.So the bottom line ends up being that the ROI only ends up being what it is for you in those cases where usage is substantially more than average usage. Where you see it in five or six years, others may not see it for ten, fifteen, or even more. And that’s independent of any decreases in panel efficiency as they age or equipment failure along the way.
For a lot of people an ROI over that kind of timeframe doesn’t make sense when considering the initial cost. The government probably should not be forcing people to accept that, especially when there are those in the same government alleging there is a “housing crisis” and citing one of the reasons for it as unaffordable pricing. Adding to the cost of homes is a step in the wrong direction. That choice should be left to the homeowner.
