What is the difference between Grid-connected and Off-grid Solar PV systems?
How much will it all cost?
However, to give a “ball park” figure, a price of $5000 for a 1kW/hr per day system would be realistic.
Solar Hot Water and Solar Photovoltaics (PV) - What’s the difference?
A solar hot water system usually sits on your roof using the sun’s sun’s natural heat to increase or maintain the temperature of hot water in a tank that eventually comes out of your shower or tap. This is usually supplemented with conventional gas or electric heating when the water temperature is below what you desire.
A solar power (photovoltaic) system, on the other hand, produces electricity which is either fed back into the electricity grid, used directly by appliances in your home, or stored in batteries if your system is not connected to an electrical grid. Power from your solar power system might be used indirectly to heat your water, but generally solar hot water systems do this job much more effectively.
Can I use my Stand-Alone Solar Power System for hot water?
Someone said I can get government rebates through the Solar buy-back scheme.
What are RECs and STCs?
The system is based on Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs); also referred to as small-scale technology certificates (STCs). These are issued by the Office of the Renewable Energy Regulator. STCs are like a stock option and its values can vary. They can be cashed in, sold off, or included as a subsidy towards the initial cost of your new system.
