The Prince goes solar

Prince Charles' application to put solar panels on Clarence House, his home in London, has been approved after it was made clear that the panels would not be visible from the ground.

While solar panels are not that efficient in terms of cost per kilowatt hour, they should pay themselves off eventually if the technology continues to operate without major repairs. I've wondered why government and other buildings in which tenants are expected to stay for many years aren't covered with them. It would be strange if the entry cost is limiting government's buying panels for its own buildings, for example, if they pay for themselves over the long haul....
