Hi there

 

Just wondering if previous contributors have any further comments on their experiences - it's been almost 2 years since this was last active.

 

I'm considering going with Solarzero. The latest offering is $85 + GST ($97.75 incl GST). Still a 20 year contract with battery replacement at the 10 year mark.

 

Thanks

 

Cliff

How big is the system and the battery? It would depend on your likely daily generation as to whether it will be worth it. I'm not saving any money but I am less than optimally positioned for maximum sunshine exposure. I do like having a giant UPS strapped to the house, though :)

We have had it for 1 1/2 years in Nelson. It is definitely cheaper but not as much as hoped. You need to factor in Network costs as well. It is working for us because we get a lot of sunshine.

Not 100% sure of how good/bad the figures are but 295W panel(s) and 3.6Kw invertor, battery has a nominal capacity of 6.4 kWh (usable capacity of 5.1 kWh) with a standard charge rate of 3 kWh and a standard discharge rate for 3 kWh.
