Hopefully some of your losses can be recovered on your taxes.
I would only rent to an old lady with a rock solid pension and no exceptions.
I rented once to a Chinese PHD Biologist straight off the boat from China...but it only took her a year to save up for her own house.
She lived a very Spartan, frugal life while saving up to pay for her goals.
nope.. I always seem to attract these low life men... out to steal.. They do get taken care of... due time..   I have my own house with huge bills..If my ol man knew what was going on... he would roll over in his grave. :wave:

$40,000 would easily cover my electricity bill for 10 years and I would not have to replace a bank full of batteries or worry about ispecting / recaulking 100 holes in my roof.
Not having easy access for roof repairs and thorough demossing is a NO GO...plus my roof is designed to carry the worst case snow loads..not  for a bunch of panels too. 
I like having a small system as a back up to my gas generator...but unless I lived in the south and had enough spare land to situate the panels on their own foundation.
We simply don't get enough sun all through the year to make a system work when it is needed most.
It’s not for everyone, but it was a no brainer for me.
I pay my installer $200 a year for cleaning/maintainence.

I have 2 holes in my roof that are inside a flashed junction box. Roofs under panels actually last longer as they’re protected from the deteriorating effects of the sun. Your roof is engineered for way more than any possible snow loads and the panels actually get the snow load off your roof much faster than without.

Now to the important math:

My system cost $52,000

The federal tax payer footed $13,500 of that through the 26% investment tax credit 

I make around $4750 a year selling solar credits for 15 years.

15 x 4750 = $71,250

I save around $5000 a year not paying an electric bill

15 x 5000 = $75,000

71,250 + 75,000 = $ 146,250

$40,000 < $146,250

After that 15 years is over I still have an estimated 10 years useful life left on my system. Any questions? :)

Even in NJ it is a smart move.  Better in Florida

Nuke power will always be toxic and expensive. Government will try disguise nuke power as cheap by giving tons of our tax dollars to the industry.

How much does it cost to replace your batteries and how often do they need replacing...
Don't tell me you live in Idaho..!
My grid that holds my panels are attached to the roof joists by screws under my shingles. Don’t tell me you’re concerned with every roofing nail that penetrates your roof. I haven’t added the batteries yet but I’d imagine the extra $100,000 will cover any needed repairs. :)
