    This payback period is exactly the measure I was looking for in an earlier post where I was questioning the high cost of solar equipment.  

    You quote currently the energy consumed in producing current solar panels is offset after 3 years of operation.

    Other factors must account for the additional cost of an installed system (including profits).  This says though that current photovoltaics still have a significant energy saving benefit, even if they don't do much currently for cost-saving for consumers.
