Re: Solar panels vs. wind or forget it?
The mention of output loss with age are just one of the bugs in solar cells I am waiting to get worked out, as things stand now technology in solar is about to start moving forward in leaps and bounds....I would wait on solar.
Because both have advantages and disadvantages I would rather go with both (you would be able to get smaller/cheaper units if you had both). I have a small boat and equally small budget. The only place I have room for a wind is on a mast on the stern...solar, that would be really tough.
