Hi Peter. Congratulations on your achievement. So tell us the bottom line, more than a year into the project. How much have you spent in total? How much electricity have you generated? What is your cost per kilowatt hour? How does it compare to the pool (grid) price, and to the price of renewable alternatives? Does it make a meaningful dent in your monthly electricity bill? More importantly, can you generate enough reliable power to run key home appliances for the duration of typical Eskom load shedding outages? What additional cost would it take to achieve this level of output/reliability?
Anybody with info on whether this represents an economically viable household-level solution to the Eskom load shedding debacle please respond. Surely it would be worthwhile to get a thread going around this?
