Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I will also note that the effective EROI of the portfolio might be increased by surrendering some of the solar component EROI by fixed installations that orient the solar panel to the southwest (in the Northern hemisphere) or northwest (in the Southern hemisphere) if that results in an average power generation curve that better matches peak consumer demand, if that means less of the portfolio energy production is lost in storage conversions.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
