Interesting, it sounds like you signed up with one of those companies that put panels on your roof and share some of the profit with you. I'm surprised they would offer you 10kW of batteries though.eldeejay wrote: ↑May 6th, 2016 1:28 pmI just got a 6kWh system with a 10kW battery backap on net metering.
Supposedly this worth 50k including labor. Whatever.
Components: panels, inverter, battery, control panel, sub-panel for 5 circuits that can run from the battery, bi-directional meter installed by utility.
Figure out how to get all this done on your own and you can probably save some money.
My inverter is Tabuchi, battery is Panasonic, panels are Canadian Solar (made in China duh).
There's about 5 days of labor for several people so it's obviously not a bolt in deal that someone could do on a weekend. There were engineers and electricians crawling around for a week.
There was engineering done on the roof. Most roofs built since the 50s will probably be fine. If house was newer and drawings were available they were willing to go from there rather than do new drawings made from crawling around the attic measuring trusses like was done in my home.
Anyway, I didn't pay for anything so I'm cost indifferent but I'm saving about 50% on my bills currently.
That's not enough to justify 50k. Maybe 20k.
I came here to complain
I'm sorry thats next door, its being hit on the head lessons in here...
