Hi, have a some quotes to review:
firstly, I have a quote for the origin VPP which they will honour although trial spots have been taken, as they have some flexibility.
6.62kwh + 10kwh LG chem battery, 390w JA panels, sungrow SH5K-30 5kw inverter (total ~$10k) but also requires 5 years sign up with origin, and they can withdraw 200kwh per year from battery. on the surface seems appealing, but system was a bit smaller than I had planned but would easily meet needs.
Im not eligible for any rebates this year, but next year i will be. I had planned to just get solar this year then a battery next year.
Other quotes are an 8.8kw system (370w jinko and fronius 8.2kw inverter and smart meter) for $9k
or 7.3kw (370w canadian solar and 6kw goodwe inverter) for $6.5k
or 6.6kw (370w LG mono and 5kw sungrow inverter but SH5K-20, not newer 30) for $8.5k
would prefer a larger system than 6.6kw but that seems to reduce inverter options. Also want to add battery next year, but as i understand it, fronius is not a hyrid inverter and may end up needing further equipment.
