solar power is very expensive to buy. your best bet is to hook the solar panels to current home/mining location then when the sun makes the electricity it just adds to the grid. (your bill is lower) if you make more electricity than consumption your power company will send you a check each month. i have a plan using the sun and fresnel lenses in a dome which would heat water creating steam which is converted to electricity. hooked up to a grid which a) pays and b) makes distilled water. tidbit: 80% of the worlds electricity is made from steam. go with what has already proven to work.
tidbit #2: the amount of energy which hits the earth each year is enough to replace all sources of energy on the earth combine. we have known this since 1905. yet we still use fucking oil and nuclear fucking power plants. somebody please shoot someone for me, im young and dont want to goto jail.
