How long does a solar photovoltaic array last? Will they continue providing the same amount of electricity over 20 or 30 years? What are the costs of maintenance (I know that the cells need to have dust and whatnot cleaned off periodically)?
Aside from cost, I can't think of any reason why you wouldn't want to be generating your own energy -- especially solar water heaters.
I would also expect that landlords could offer solar electric systems in their rental houses as an additional benefit for renters.
