Is solar power cost effective for you?
Compare the capital costs of setting up solar power versus the expected long term returns.
Solar Power Capital Costs
Grid connected solar power:
Solar panels + grid inverter + new power meter + installation - government rebates - renewable energy credits
Remote connected solar power:
Solar panels + regulator + batteries + inverter + installation - government rebates - renewable energy credits
Solar Output Considerations
What is the solar energy received at your location? For remote systems how much generator fuel will be saved with a solar system? How close to the perfect aspect and pitch is the mounting for the solar panels? Is there a feed in tariff for your area? Is it based on net or gross alternative energy generation? What is your current electrical consumption? Will the solar system generate an income?
