Hello from Tassie

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!

Hello from Tassie

We have just had installed solar on our home. At the moment I am trying to come to grips with WiFi monitoring. Our system is as follows,
2 strings 12x315W JA panels = 3.78kW each. Total 7.56kW into 2 3kW Sungrow inverters. Our home has a 2 phase configuration. There was much discussion on how this system should be set up with a road block at the length of cable 177 metres between the meter box and the house. As luck would have it 2-25mm cables kept the voltage rise below the arbitrary 2%. Up to date all is working well. Some installers will try and talk you into a single phase setup which is just plain wrong and I guess this is because of the highly competitive nature of the industry and the complexity of solar that the client must try and absorb.

How did you go..
Do you export much power..
Just thinking that if you don't export, or minimally export, you have less chance of trouble ..
I use a CATCH POWER system that pumps EXCESS POWER into hot water.. So very little export at next to nothing..
