An interesting idea. The only questions I could see arising about them in Phoenix, AZ would be the effect they have on the city’s summer heat island effect and the dust and thunderstorms effects on the devices. If they contribute to the heat island or are incapable of dealing with minimal maintenance the harsh storms we get then they wont be much use in Phoenix, let alone Arizona as a whole.
I’d certainly love to replace the old early 80s system that was put on my house with the newer photovoltaics but can’t afford to right now.
