    TRIPLE YOUR SOLAR ARRAY'S OUTPUT!

    Not to nit pick but this seems way off. The rule of thumb on total insolation is 100 watt per square foot so 100 square feet would give 10KW maximum. You claim up to 6.7 KW, but the most efficient solar cells in home power systems is less than 30% and most of the energy lost is in the form of heat, not reflection. The numbers simply don't add up.
