If you have to buy the PV equipment, it´s not worth the cost. If you have parts of it laying around because it´s your reserve if SHTF with the
PV-system, it´s worth it.
It´s never cost effective, if you look at buying stuff. The cost for the greenhouse, if it´s a decent stable one, you will never get that back with
the money you safe with growing your own food. Except you do it big and manage to sell it.
But for home consumption, your main reward is your own food, own herbs and that you know what you eat. It´s not that urgent for me, I live rural and
get most of my staples from the region.
Eggs, milk, beef, apples, potatoes, I buy them locally from trusted sources. Most herbs and vegetables are grown in the garden, the apples I get from
my trees are juiced and bottled so I basically have my own apple juice and the rest of the neighborhood because I can´t collect the whole plantage
myself. So I buy apples to eat them, although at the end of the year, I literally have a metric ton, but they all become juice.
