Recently, I sent the following questions by e-mail to a Solar power company, Solarworld.

First, my questions.

"Does your company have anyone amongst the technical staff who has any 
experience with mitigation of Radio Frequency Interference (RFI)? Do you cover 
possible RFI issues in your installation contracts?"

Here is the very interesting  response, a response which, essentially, answered my 

"Hello Kenneth,
Thank you for contacting SolarWorld.
Our company only manufactures the Solar panel which does not have any 
communication components.
As far as RFI blocking the solar energy from reaching the module, I am unaware of 
any related issues.
Please let me know if you have heard of anything related to RFI and power 
production of a solar module.
Warm regards,

All I can say is, "Ye gods!" If this is the sort of Technical Support one can expect 
from these fly-by-night solar power companies, we are in very serious trouble.
