    I guess you'd have to have a whacking great inverter with it though to convert to AC (unless that's integrated into the kit?)

    Like all great ideas, it's sooo bloody simple - almost back to the days of a accumulators!

    Wouldn't mind buying a kochel of company shares though!

    I know a lady that's already got two to power her vibrator, she has saved £8 so far on Duracells

    That is exactly what is already in use Wingman.. We have had the panels for about 4 years now ( JUST managed to catch the end of the really good F.I.T. ) and the outlay is already 3/4 done and dusted.
    The kit consists of the panels, the BIG inverter / regulator, the feed in meter and a switch to isolate it all from the grid should the need arise..

    While the outlay may seem a lot, my experience to date with solar technology will mean I shall certainly be in the queue for an install once they become available here in the UK (y)

    Looks like another scam to me. Am sticking with my water powered generator.
