People have an illusion about solar power.  they call it free energy.

 

I think a focus on solar for a store like Best Buy would have to revolve around things like charging a battery to supply LED lighting at night or charging portable electronics.

 

a 10000 watt kit would cost you somewhere around $22000

 

The average house needs about 3000 to 5000 watts.  This does not include things like your entertainment devices or washer and dryer.  Your hair dryer alone is going to draw 1200 or so watts.

 

In April I averaged $3 a day for electricty.  $22,000 would buy me 18 years of electricty at that rate.  and that $22,000 is only going to supply you during the day.  Unless you task it to charge bank of batteries to power your LED lights at night.

 

I do think this is is good idea but only if geared towards small scale operations.
