So ANY PV needs to be above 10% efficiency to be even considerd to be cost effective. Unless the government wants to give very low interest loans for PV installs.

they must first get above the cost of money threshold for these keserites to be efficient enough to be a viable solution. rule # 1 of PV efficiency% - cost of money % = return % (1st order arox.) so if you are the government or a bank that is 0.5% for the rest of use we are lucky to get 5% LOAN.
