For someone of our age it's not cost effective to go solar. A whole house battery, while still expensive, is a better idea. Charge it at night when cost is low (about 1/2 of prime here) then use it when needed.

Considering the rarity of outages here even that is probably overkill.

Solar Panel must need a Solar grid because Grid divides power from all its outer covered areas and makes them with one flow to save more efficient power.

What I want to know is...If the government/military has power generation which can provide the unlimited power requirements of these triangular/cigar shaped craft, why haven't we seen any of that technology?

Solar panels are pretty useless until we get decent cheaper batteries which can store a reasonable amount of power.
