Mark:hio77: very nice setup.. what did that cost to have put in?
I took the 4KW system which is $2499 plus $92.50 per month for the next decade or so ;-) Doing the sums it looks to "pay for itself" in the next 2.5 to 3 years. I live in Mangawhai and power he is flakey so for us its not just the power bill savings it's the UPS for when power goes out (and it goes out if the wind even thinks of blowing!)
And if anyone is still interested this is what the dashboard looks like :
It got taken out of standby at about 11:30am today. Green is where you are using solar generated power, blue is where power is going back to the grid and grey is power used from the grid, the line is an indication of solar generation.
not setting out to burst your bubble re payback period but you might want to review this thread for more detail / npv analysis etc:
that said it is a cool looking system - just not sure the payback is quite there yet though : )
