This system is a domestic scale supplementary solar system which can be utilised with a rotary disc meter or a prepaid meter. The DC power from the solar panels is converted to AC power for direct usage by your house. A Current Transformer is included that can prevent grid-feed, in the case of prepaid meters. The system has no back-up component and will only produce power while the sun is shining and the Eskom grid is available.
This system will produce on average 18 kWh per day. Assuming all this energy is consumed through the daytime or stored on the grid, this would equate a saving of approximately R 1 665.00 per month (base on a municipal tariff of R 3.08 / kWh, VAT incl.). This means a basic payback of 27 months based on a yearly Eskom increase of 10%.
