The Eham Misc Forum heading is being used because I was not certain which Forum Topic title may best apply.
The Tesla Company has evidently designed a quality and affordable home-solar-panel option that is paid monthly at the same level as my current electric bill. While visiting a local Home Depot, their sales person explained the details which were new to me. They offer to visit your home with test solar panels to confirm if your home will produce enough electricity to make the program affordable and worthwhile when compared to the current annual electric bill with 'Met-Ed'.
I asked them about RFI to ham radio stations because we have several factories in town with solar panel 'farms' which produce huge interference when you drive within 1/2 mile on your car AM stations.
Tesla engineers 'claim' that they are not aware of any RFI from residential solar panels in the frequencies of 160 meters to 10 meters or 2 meters. But, they also stated that they did yet have a lot of experience with this potential problem.
Does anyone know more about home solar panels and the possible problem of RFI when using typical HF and VHF dipoles, long wires, vertical antennas all located within a few feet of the home rooftop?
Thank you for your comments and suggestions.
