Say g'day and tell us a little bit about yourself if you wish. If you have a wind or solar power system, big or small; flaunt its specs here!

Hi, I am in Townsville and new on here. I have a 1.7kw system connected to the grid and about to add another 6.48 system to the grid. There are 2 seperate inverters. Is this legal and is it ok to do this?

Welcome to the Energy Matters Forums Watching :)

There is no legal reason not to have 2 separate systems on a house, its a question of whether your electricity provider will allow it, or impose any export restrictions.
