Thanks for reassuring me, and I am most pleased that responsible installers are making the point clear to prospective customers, and we will naturally see a total drop in the number of people asking the old question.
"When will I ever see 2Kw from my 2Kw system?".. . . .
This is no different to selling a litre of milk in a 200mL can and saying "but it actually 1L concentrated for packaging economy"..
... .. . What you get is as important as what you actually buy?
I must add that I have spoken to a few people in the last days, who are getting quotes, and not one installer has mentioned what they should expect to actually SEE on a daily basis, just what they could generate per day, and some seem a bit optimistic, raising the customer's expectation of shorter "Pay-Back" times.
BUT - you installers, who are being responsible, can easily turn this tale to financial advantage, pointing out that customers can benefit from the reality, and load their inverter with sufficient panels to actually generate the GCI limit.
We are told that they are actively selling 2.5Kw of panels with a 2Kw inverter in Victoria..
That has to be the most responsible way of doing it, both for the customer and the environment.
