Before I get roasted for not using Whirlpool for Solar research, please note that I've already tried, and it is a complete chaos when I try to navigate through Whirlpool. Not really use to it. I guess people feel the same when I tell them to jump on Ozbargain for some great deals, and they tell me that it's very hard to navigate … anyways …
Currently looking to get solar panels installed at my place and was quoted for $4,700 on the following specifications:
- Based in SYD for reference
- 6.6kW system, with 20x330w Jinko Panels
- 5kW Fronius inverter
- Double Storey, tile roofing
- include supply, install as well as application for new meter from grid provider?
I know I don't have the specific models, but does this look like a decent price? Is there anything I should be asking?
Also looking into changing electricity providers, from origin to AGL. After putting some quick numbers on Excel, I have come up with the following
My last bill was for the following usage:
1321kWh usage PEAK @ 28.578c/kWH with 87.45c per day supply
376kWh Controlled Load 1 @ 15.257c/kWh with 15.257 per day supply
Cost based on provided information = ~$530/quarter
AGL SOLAR SAVERS
PEAK 28.369c/kWH WITH 90.20c/DAY CHARGE
CL1 13.167c/kWH WITH 6.6c/DAY CHARGE
Cost based on provided information = $520/quarter
As commonly discussed on some forums I see AGL has 21c/kWh FIT, whereas Origin has something like 8.5c (or ~21c/kWh limited to 6kWh daily)
Am I missing something? If anyone more knowledgeable than I am could provide some insight, that would be much appreciated. Alternatively, if anyone on here is looking for some advice, this would be a great forum to discuss.
