    So looking at our october bill. we exported 132 units @ 7.125cents per unit and used 1541 units @ 23.366.
    november bill = 222 units exported. 786 used.

    looks like we only have a 2kw unit maybe thats why ours is so shit?

    We installed 6kw system the other day.
    It's been making approx 40 kW per day if I am reading it correctly.
    I think that means I'm doing ok
    For $6k couldn't go wrong incl 3 phase invertor and ready for batteries

    We exported 748 units oct to nov with a 5kw system so either your system is quite a bit smaller or it's covered in stray rubber from the dyno.

    What you don't see on the bill is units generated and used. You really need to check your system for the stats

    Also make sure you wash your pamels are washed regularly.
    Ots amazing the difference it makes.
    I use a deionized water system that I have at work so there is no residue left on them but soapy water is fine

    whats the current pricing on 4-5kw systems. thinking of adding it to a commercial building also a cost on adding additional panels to ours, it's a 5kw unit just needs more panels.

    How where you chopping through 50 units a day in October? 24hr dyno pulls?

    my dyno hasn't been at my house for over 12 months. so it's not that.

    I also doubt even our evap aircon can pull that much either. I reakon synergy just makes shit up for our bill. which is why I want to upgrade our system to 5kw worth of panels.

    Could you please email me your address and I will get you some options across? Send it to j.thraves@gewa.com.au if you can.

    Pricing varies a fair bit depending on the product used. When people quote sizing it really means nothing, it is like comparing a 50' Soniq TV to a 50' Samsung etc. As I have mentioned I deal in the mid-range to premium end with products that have large Australian backing as we have been caught out in the past having to warrant Chinese gear which went wrong and I couldn't get support. Commercial offers a really good return on investment, we have grown a lot in the commercial sector over the past 12 months. As above if you can email me on j.thraves@gewa.com.au your address and what you have at your place (panel model/inverter model) as well as a copy of the commercial property electricity bill I will be able to offer some options on both for you.

    hey Jazza, I've been on the 47 cent feed in tariff for 4 years or so, I seem to remember that the govt would only buy back at that rate for a limited time, was it 10 years?
    thanks

    "This new scheme is set to commence on 1 August 2010 with a premium FiT rate of 40 cents per Kilowatt-hour over the next ten years.


    This will be complementary to the 7 cents currently paid under the Renewable Energy Buyback Scheme, meaning that solar customers will receive a total of 47 cents for each unit of electricity that they export to the grid."

    As per above yes you are correct. By the time your feed in tariff is over batteries will offer a good return on investment so you can then look to store the excess power generated for night time consumption.

    I've often wondered if solar wouldn't be a great way of getting away with a grow house given they catch most of them with power consumption and or circumvented meters.

    How were you going through 50 units a day again?

    Will be interesting to see next one as we now have a 6kw solar system punching out 32 to 38 units a day ATM
