“domestic” solar power in Canberra

By planeguy 11 October 2010 10

So apparently the ACT let’s you have a home based solar system that has 10kw capacity per phase. One Canberran seems therefore to have gone whole hog and installed a 29.7kw system. To put this in perspective most home systems are 1-2kW.

Now a look at his site shows 120+ kWh generated per day since installation. Once again putting this in perspective, that is 4-8 times what most homes consume.

It can’t have been cheap, but it’s pretty funky 🙂

What’s it cost to install enough panels to offset a minimum of 75% of a typical families power bill?

That still doesn’t answer the question. Surely must have cost a bit more than $22k to set up in the first place.

His Wikipedia entry seriously understates the contributions he has made to computer software.

Does anyone know what the ROI on that sort of setup is?

+1

Or the payback period?

You’re supposed to ‘T’ yourself when you say his full name.
