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.

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