DOES LIFE CYCLE OF PRODUCTS JUSTIFY USING PHOVOLTAICS BASED ON COST VERSUS QUALITY!

When is solar a viable alternative to most electrical generating systems looking at the cost of the

panels, batteries, also inverters/charge controllers, just for a domestic(home) application alone on the  average about $20,000 price tag or $60,000 for  5000 sq.ft large dwelling so when you look at the average life cycle for solar electric panels are usually about 13 years and the dependability of

service may outway the positive if  the dwelling is totally comitted only to solar so I would advocate

hybrid type systems are best using various other alternatives with solar homes.

Whenever you are talking about cost v. quality, there are a lot of things to take into consideration. Just because something is cheap in the short term, doesn't mean it won't cost you just as much in the long term due to repairs & warranty issues, sometimes there is extra hassle involved, insecurity of the product, etc.
