Posted By: gravelldI don't really see the point of sizing to use - it's a similar situation to insulation. The panels aren't really the expensive bit...

Posted By: ringiAnd what about wave power – I don’t understand why it has not come on a lot more.
Posted By: ringiTidal power should also be big for us, but is not yet, - why?
Posted By: ringiWind should have been push a lot more, including sorting out the planning system. It can cost as much in planning and sites that are not allowed to be developed as the hardware itself.
Posted By: ringiPersonally I think if we had invested the money in CHP boiler systems instead of PV as a nation we would be in a better state. PV does not give the output at the times of day/year that we most need it in the UK.Wind should have been push a lot more, including sorting out the planning system. It can cost as much in planning and sites that are not allowed to be developed as the hardware itself.And what about wave power – I don’t understand why it has not come on a lot more.Tidal power should also be big for us, but is not yet, - why?
Posted By: SteamyTeaHave you ever seen a 7 tonne block of granite being pushed up the street by a wave, after that same wave has turned into an inlet, travelled 200 m, smashed into some rocks, jumped over a 2 m wall and still managed to move the block 20 m.That one wave probably only had 20% of the energy that it had 5 minutes earlier.
Posted By: SteamyTeaThe market value of domestic PV is what it currently is.What you want to know is what is the free market value. This is harder to answer and you have to take all the costs into account.So you have to put a price all the external cost of all the other generation types as well to get a true price.One way to do this is to put a price on the cost of emitting CO2e. This is a global cost i.e. is lost farm production in Bangladesh worth the same as in the Mid West USA. I would say it is, but other would say not.That is partly why you have not had an answer to that question.
