Re: Solar Thread - PVOutput

so this is what we ended up going with for our house... obviously not going to give us a $0 power bill, but it'll make a dent in it, no?

i don't really know what any of this means, so copy and paste from our quote:
"19 panels, 4.94kW Winaico WST260W and a Fronius Primo 5kW Inverter with energy meter"

Re: What has made/ruined you're day (whinge/happy thread)

Apparently it's just an air leak in the system. They'll diagnose it properly on Monday and go from there. One negative is that the vw assist and service department have been really unhelpful. Falling back on their "policies" as an excuse. But at the same time being apologetic about it. I don't wanna...
