I have a 2Kw grid tie system that has been in place since June 2009. It has 2 kW Panels north facing and 1Kw East facing and 1Kw West facing as a virtual tracking system, it works great.
A year ago we installed an off grid system that is completely seperate it has 5Kw of panels and two Pip4048HS inverters with a 20KwH LiFePO4 battery and this supplies most of our power.
Last week I had a call from Energex asking why they were paying me more FIT in the last 12 months?
I said it was because I had installed an. Off grid system and that was supplying most of our power,
He said "that was not in the theme of the sceme" and I would loose my FIT.
I asked if he could show me where I had done the wrong thing in writing and he would not.
And said battery systems were not allowed,
He just said he would send an inspector,
I said make sure he has a piece of paper showing me where it's against the rules. End of call.
