Looks like we have our first full scale experience to look at.  Should be interesting. Solar + battery is delivering at 13.9 cents per KWH which is half the cost of current diesal based electricity for the island.  So it looks like a positive payback for remote applications now.

More cool images:

Tesla built a huge solar energy plant on the island of Kauai

Karma fo IAM4 , this is the kind of application that solar does 'shine' with.
Stop complaining about life and start Celebrating it .

I've reached the age where there is little left to learn the hard way.
