They have to replace them every few decades, correct?
Maybe even sooner. Based on most of the installations I've seen, there isn't enough space between roof and panels, this causes heat buildup you wouldn't believe.
It not only cooks the tar in the average shingle and melts it, but the panel gets too hot for two reasons. One, is the sun, but when you add in resistance from the electricity trying to push power into and over the rated power of the grid, you create heat, much like any load, even when the wire is sized corectly, the panels still create heat between the cell connections.
This is bad because the EVA (glue) that protects the cells between the glass eventually begins to brown, within in time you have essentially produced a sunglass effect that cuts down the efficiency of the cell.

The cell doesn't necessarily degrade, but the coating does, and this happens on the best panels out there. The cheapest panels, (amorphous) last about ten years and start degrading rapidly after that point.
The only way to mount panels is tilted up off the roof or stand alone in a field tilted up so the heat can waft away.

Modern Nukes are the clear solution for the irrational mind.

Yes. Let's nuke California.

No need. It is self destructing.

Rookie mistake, throwing the baby out with the bath water.

If people are serious about cleaning things, they only need to improve their aim. Nukes are messy  :biggrin:
Every time I look at this map, it boggles my mind of how big an impact the left has had on 98% of the population, but then, I remember how they targeted the media first.
Truth is, that was a brilliant move. It also exposes how just a handful of wealthy individuals have control of the helm.

No if they will only leave their Lib BS thinking in California.

(Assume "No" = "Now"?)
That is the real problem with progs fleeing the consequences of the political and economic policies they support.  THEY DON'T FRACKING LEARN!!!!  They flee the disasters their policies invariably result in, but as soon as they settle in a new area, they promote the same self-destructive policies that drove them out of their previous homes.
