No prob at all!expat girl said:If some nice person can kit my gaff out with a solar panel that might halve my lecky bills for a semi-reasonable price, I don't mind paying them... sure we pay the ESB and Bord Gais anyway....I really can't understand what the problem is. :shock2:
Except very expensive - limited power output at 52degrees N, especially in our 8 month winter, no output at all at night, power needs to be converted to AC which wastes some power, panel is not going to last forever so how to dispose of it....
Does anyone have figures for expected purchase and installation costs (subsidy-free please) and power (in kWhr/day, for each month at 52 degrees N) for rooftop installation on (say) a typical 3 bed semi with main axis of house E-W so back of house (say) facing S.
That would be v interesting.
