Hello Solar experts. What is the Gimick in this add? Two weeks ago there was a similiar one for $1800 at 12KW.
This makes no sense as some people pay about $20K+ for a house system. Maybe $8-15K if they do it themselves. I googled it but did not find anything on these solar generators in my searches.
I use 4000 KW-HR a month. So even if this Generator system operates at 50% during a 8hr sun day that would be: 12KW x 8hrs x .50 x 30=1440KW-HRS a month. Or about 36% of a monthly bill.
I am sure alot of factors are missing. Ie cost to wire into house. It would probally only be able to work off grid.

That looks like total bs. No way two panels give you 12kW. Maybe 600 W. if they are the newer generation panels. Stick to reputable dealers, I like Civic Solar for my do it yourself install.
