Ive been quoted by 2 different solar companies Green Engineering Solar ($5100) & Greenlink solar($5800) for a Fronius Primo 5 inverter & Jinko Eagle AC 60, 22 panels, 300watts(Green Engineering) & Jinko Eagle 60M, 18 panels, 285watts(Greenlink)
What is your thought on both quotes.Im in Kurunjang 3337.
My roof is tiled single storey & im installing on north & west side for optimum power generation at evenings.
UPDATE MAY 2020
When did you get your solar installed? Jan 2019
What Panels and Inverters did you get? Jinko 300watts & Fronius 5.01
What is the size of your system? 6 kWatts
What Solar Company did you go with? Would you recommend them? Green engineering solar. Yes however they have a dedicated team for every service so you’ll not speak to the same person every time.
What is your estimated payback period of the system? 10 years
Are you happy with your solar system? Yes very happy I’m in credit every bill(quarterly)
Would you do anything different next time? No the inverter can only covert a max of 5 kw capped for residential so even if I wanted to put more panels it wouldn’t serve any advantage. So I’m happy with 20 panels
What’s the average price you pay for your electricity from the grid (per kWh)?
$0.38 usage$1.48 supply with a 40% discount of usuage
What is your feed in tariff?
Time of use ($0.9,$0.11,$0.14 respectively)
Who is your electricity retail? Are you happy with them? Energy Australia. Yes I’m happy. On fact I’ve just switched to another plan that benefits me more with$0.26 usuage &$1.26 supply and a 10% discount over total usuage and supply.
What I’ve also learnt is a flat feed in tariff of $0.12 is better over time of use as during peak hours we use most of the electricity so we don’t return to the grid during that time to gain the higher tariff of $0.14.
