So Confussed

Postby BAGT16 » Tue Sep 22, 2009 9:15 pm

Hi All,

I live in SA and looking to get a 1.5kw solar system installed.

I have been quoted from $4200 to $17000 for a 1.5 kw system fully installed.
REC prices from $33 to $45.

Only 1 company has quoted me thin film which I dont think is recommend for SA but all other quotes are for crystalline cells.

Please help very confussed

Hi bagt16,

Welcome to the forums. It can certainly be a minefield when deciding on who to get a new system from. Of course, we'd like you to get one from us, but it's important to select a provider who can meet your particular set of needs.

Have you read our solar power consumer's guide as yet? Perhaps that might help you wade through all the various packages you've been offered by different companies.
