  • In Germany we have been using Solar Systems for over 20 Years now and our experience shows that after this time most solar panels have more than 80% of their initial performance. The typical german solar panel setup is quite similar to yours. Usually we don't use several microinverters but only one big string inverter and as most of the europeans have some kind of tiled roof we have to use a different mounting system. In southern germany 1kw of solar panels generate about 1000kwh per year. If you want to have them installed by a company you pay around 1300€ (1570$) per 1kw, so your setup would have cost about 12560$. Usually the excess energy goes into the grid (because storage is too expensive and isn't worth it) and you reveice about 0.07€ (0.084$) per kwh from your distribution network operater. Right now we germans pay about 0.28€ (0.34$) per kwh, so solar roofs in germany are really worth it. You can see a lot of houses in germany with solar panels.

  • Isn't the green issue with solar panels not energy but the same as with phones and other high tech products in that they require rare earth minerals and are toxic when they break down? If they have improved enough recently to last 30 years, then that's really a great improvement, but I'm also skeptical, especially since most American's don't even have $1000s in savings and the price of these things basically makes that tax incentive a welfare system for wealthier americans with decently above average incomes, at least enough to grow their savings to where they could comfortably spend that $8000. But that's just the cynic in me not trusting anything that the government incentivizes with tax credits. Like, at best, even if you say it isn't welfare, it's just giving you back the money that they spent the year taking from you. Too manipulative for me to ever be comfortable with

  • Quality video. I went with a reputable installer. My energy bill average is $187 per month x 12 months = $2,244 per year. Maryland electric prices are .12c per kWh. We have net metering, Baltimore Gas and Electric pays you for what you produce. For each 1Mwh produced you generate a solar credit that pays you, currently $75 per credit x 16 per year = $1,200. My system has been up since Sept. and has generated $1,000 in kWh so far and I have been paid for 6 credits for $437 (2 credits to be paid still). I will see a bigger amount of pay back over the next 4 months due to the summer sun. I project 100% generation for all my electric needs ($2,244) + 16 credits x $75 = $1,200. Total $3,444 per year. Wish I had done it myself, but my roof is 2 stories and a steeper pitch, plus I am not a fan of heights. 8.5 year payback. Key is to buy and pay with cash as, if possible. I got a 1 year 0% interest loan on the government subsidies. Paying interest will increase the payback period.

  • With regards to east vs west power, it depends on where you live. In sunny parts of Australia it’s about 88% of the north (your south) facing. But in areas further from equator it goes over 90% so most new installs in Australia are east+north+west in 3 strings or micro. This is really a new thing with the efficiency of some of the later panels. If it’s a slightly longer ROI it doesn’t really matter. I know if really old systems going string after 15 years, so they would have paid for themselves many times over. And better still…. More solar means less coal.

    Glenn StewartGlenn Stewart12 օր առաջ
  • Great looking system and hello from north panel facing Australia. Confused about saving calculation. When talking about saving here we split it into self consumption and export. If you created 30kWh (during day) self consumption might be 10kWh (what you would normally pay your provider). So that would be 10kWh x 10c saved. The extra 20kWh we would normally export and the provider would pay us. Then of course taking into account usage at night that solar doesn’t pay for. In my case electricity is much more expensive than Utah. We get about 1/4 system paid for government which is effectively paying the REC’s in advance. We only get that if we have it installed professionally :( In USD systems are usually about 70c per watt installed. But high electricity price really helps incentivise with our kWh rate being closer to 20c (OUCH). But for exporting we get 15c. Utah’s giving back is actually a really, really good idea!! Loving solar though. The government and installers make it easy making it the highest per capita user of home solar. Payback given higher price got electricity and lower system and install costs is often 3-4 years here. But having seen so many systems here (over 20% of homes have solar), I must say yours is really good looking and would put most to shame
