No, an import/export meter is to charge solar homes correctly, not a smart meter. It is possible to have a non-smart import/export meter. A...

For a fair comparison the Dyson would have to cool the air rather than just being a fan. Totally different products with different uses and...

They will have to be on the same phase if you have three phase power otherwise I imagine they won’t work as the active wire is not...

That’s how I read it and the title is completely misleading if this is the case. It should list the price as “$5411 ($2225 interest...

At least it is realistic to fully charge and discharge virtually every day with that size battery, and you can potentially get some extra...

They supply Energy to Australia.... I get your point, but saying the name is deceptive seems a stretch.

Probably not cheaper but a Dell WD19 should do the job. I can’t see any reason why it wouldn’t work as long as Lenovo support...

Target will post it to store for you to collect which does have the advantage that you can click and collect even if the store doesn’t...

I agree it is impossible to recommend that system without more details, but unless your house is heavily shaded the price of solar is at...

If you have three phase power then it can be used to run a 3-phase load (usually large ducted aircon in a residential setting), but it will...

A simple generator is certainly cheaper - no arguments there. A battery is a premium option that will (hopefully) automatically kick in...
29/07/2019 - 15:57
Agreed that load shifting solar isn’t going to pay for the battery, especially with a high feed in tariff, but at that price a...

Yes it is confusing with different capabilities. Look for ports and cables with a D (DisplayPort) or Lightning bolt (Thunderbolt) which...

With DisplayPort over USB-c you are plugging the monitor into the GPU, it is just that you are using a USB cable to do so. In some cases...

It says 2 stops, but there are actually 3, there's a fuel stop in Xinzheng for about 2 hours along the way (same plane, but it lands and...

Lots of detailed info here about the inverter and yes it mentions EPS and blackout protection lacking, but also many good points:...

My dishwasher uses about 1kwh of electricity to do a load on its least efficient setting. Let's say I like that setting and 60% of that is...

If you ask for it to be added when you pick up or after delivery then probably. I'm not making any guarantees here, but that's what they...

As you found no you can't do that. You can generally get some free Finish quantum tablets out of it or something else that you want out of...

You also get a $20 credit (no minimum spend - in store, click and collect and delivery) to use 3 times a year (you usually only get a few...

Their site says you lose the credits if you cancel, but you can suspend for 3 months once every 12 months and keep the credits. You may...

It won’t be that quick, but 50% renewables for electricity in 10 years will happen pretty much regardless of the government.
27/05/2019 - 17:51
The bin is my biggest disappointment with the V6. I often find it easier to release the bin housing to clean it out. Just press down on the...

Possibly in the short term or over some select years but anyone suggesting 10% or more for 20 years is nuts. Consider that over the past 20...

No, just read a lot in the hope that renewable energy can save the planet despite the efforts of some and luckily it seems that it...

After discount about 36c inc GST is reasonable in SA. If you are paying much more than that then you are probably paying too much.
19/04/2019 - 20:27
Yes it has, but those sort of rises are not going to continue in the long term. We have gone from an oversupply of cheap coal-based...

I’ve got nothing against the system, but two things - if you need to finance it then don’t get a battery. Really just don’t. It is of...
19/04/2019 - 19:06
A. Yes, but onky if the inverter manufacturer allows it. Do they in this case? The only documentation that I can see suggests not, but...

Yes it is common and wise to hook up more panels than the AC capacity of the inverter and this one allows 5.8kw of panels on a 5kw inverter...
