Not much wind where I am, and I don't even know if I can legally have a turbine. Fortunately we have "net metering" so they utility pays me when I overproduce during the day, and I can buy-back at night, so no need for batteries, etc.Of course this is all about daylight, but what about the rest of the hours when there’s little or no light, have you ever taught about wind generation instead as an upgrade ?, wind power is better because it’s running nearly 24/365 (Where I live beside the sea).
I broke even on my last install about 2 years ago, and I should break even on this new update in about 7-8 years.I’d love Solar panels but the installation costs here are so Huge , by the time you’d get anywhere near to breaking even
I'm not too worried about the hazards, especially with proven tech like the Tesla Powerwall, etc. That said, ya, way too expensive, and I don't really need the emergency backup, even in California where they have been shutting off power during days in the summer for some people.IMO, you REALLY don't want large storage batteries of any chemistry on your property. They are expensive to purchase, are a considerable hazard, and currently don't have sufficient lifetime. If you do go the storage route, DON'T place them inside your home.
Wow, that covers your entire usage? Very impressive!We have a 6KW system with SMA inverter limited to 5Kw
The government limits the total amount of solar you can have!?!? Why are they doing that?limited to 5Kw due to government regulations here
