[Tagging] Solar shop

The term photovoltaic refers to the mechanism used by certain solar devices
to generate electricity. In this case, it describes a device that is using
sunlight to create electricity, i.e., a photovoltaic panel. I'm asking
about a shop that sells photovoltaic panels along with related alternative
energy devices such as wind turbines, power controllers, battery packs,
solar hot-water heaters, etc. Using shop=photovoltaic would be too limited
in scope for this purpose.

I would never have guessed that the word "solar" means diesel fuel. I am
leaning toward shop=solar_equipment

Thanks for the input.
