    If, on days or at times when my array is producing a surplus, and during the time my array is producing such a surplus I bake potatoes in my microwave oven, am I cooking with solar energy ?

    I've also made and cooked with solar ovens. That's fun, but that's actually the method that I'd consider quite expensive and impractical, particularly if time = money. Been there. done that. Have you ? Or have you just read about it ?
    Haven't used it but thinking from long time.My partner told me its not going to work out practically; so i thought the same.
