After exactly 8 weeks operation, our rooftop solar panel installation
has just clocked up its first 500 kilowatt hours - a spectacular result
for an installation in central Europe in winter.

Nice one Tom. I am presently investigating!

21.7 square metres? Wow. That's almost as big as my south facing roof.

Anyway, well done, Tom. That's almost 9 kWH per day. My average consumption
is just under 8 kWH per day. Gas central heating helps keep the consumption
down, of course.

I'd love to know what you FIT is like. How long before you actually make a

$00 each?

One day probably cost $0 each.

$0000 plus $000 instalation? I pay less than $000 a year for electricity,
not bad at 10-15 year cash pay back AND it'll still be worth quite a lot at
the end. It'll always mean a lot less bills for home ownwer. Say in ten
years still be worth $000 to new owner if the house were sold.

10,000 plus installation in the UK. And I pay less around 400 a year from
the grid. I suppose I MIGHT live long enough to break even ... around 25
years assuming 10% p.a. fuel inflation.
