Interesting idea. That could help early adoption of the technology. Note that the rest of the industry thrives on regular upgrades for consumer electronics.

What happens if I install solar panels on my roof top today and after a couple years a more advanced technology comes in with panels with panels having much higher efficiency? Not sure if it is practical or not, but I think it would be better if the companies provides some kind of scheme to upgrade the panels at subsidized price if something better comes up.
