RE: No battery for my system

Our problem is that we live at the bottom of a hill (which contains a couple of "skyscraper" pines on it!), and it shades our house somewhat. (The pines are on our neighbor's property, but much of the shade is on our property.) So in order for enough electricity to be generated in the reduced time period, we had to go with the highest wattage panels available at the time we made our purchase. We have a small house too (about 1240 square feet), so, as you correctly guessed, there's not a lot of extra space on our roof. That's why our solar investment isn't going to pay off quite as quickly as yours. Still, it's been wonderful to compare how our electrical bill has become so reduced now, compared to how much we were paying before. With the two additional panels I just added, I'm expecting that we'll see enough electricity generated to completely cover our usage this year.
