How reliable is your power? Be aware that grid tied solar systems don't do anything if utility company power is out, I mention this because a surprising number of people don't understand that.

When our grid tied solar system was installed (in Montana) I was told that, in the event of a power outage, our system would automatically disconnect from the grid and we'd continue having "home made" power during the day. At night we'd have to crank up our generator. Fortunately, in the 6 years we've lived in our new house, there have only been 2 outages, and they happened while we were in Zihua.
