Gr8 man it didn't strike me at all, at least in India they're quite popular.
I even have one of my friend who owns a company that makes solar powered products and pioneers solar power as alternative.
I think for a 350W+ load (like for R9 290X for eg) it shouldn't be too much costly, I can use the Solar power to power my complete system

It's on my list. When we move to the "compound" in a few years (e.g. get out of the townhouse onto some acreage) we are going to invest in some 30 year solar panels. The incentives from various states, the EPA, and gas & electric companies amount to almost 1/2 off the initial cost in some places.

Panels are great if you have a lot of sun. We're 39 degrees north latitude, so the sun angle is pretty bad for half the year. Then, there's nighttime to contend with, so you need battery storage if you produce more than you consume during the daylight hours.
