  1. I love your videos, I have learnt so much from your research videos. Thank you very much for taking the time to research and make videos to benefit your viewers. Very much appreciated.

  2. I had mine installed in 2012 and we have a net feed in tariff which means the kWh's I feed into the grid gets deducted from my energy bill. Even in the Netherlands climate it is worth the investment. I'm past 75% on return of investment. It works baie goed! Thanks for the video.

  3. Hi, I am fron Jhb SA and have 1500 watts of panels(6x 250W Canadian Solar panels in 2 strings of 3 each in series) Have a Axpert aka PIP4048 and lots of batteries. My question is: Only have house lights on solar currently with max load about 250w. My panels do not show anything more than 755w max with 10A since install a month ago. Have been told that panels will not go to capacity or close to it because batteries have not been drained enough, would this stm be correct.

  4. Hi MJlorton! What a lovely video this is. Thanks for sharing. I would like to get an indicative figure, I mean how much it can cost me now to do the solar solution that you have in your home.

  5. Thank you for sharing. I just found your videos and will be watching to learn all I can. Your explanations are very good. Best wishes, Linda

  6. We are finally building our home overlooking a small vineyard we've designed and now are bound to it. Full of clear understanding and guidance.

  7. Nice video. mine is smaller. I use 12kw per day. my panels bring in on a good day 9kw. it is cheaper to run it straight to grid. I also have 400 watts dedicated to 8- 6volt batteries @24 volts, that go to 2 dedicated lines in the house, 2 dedicated outlets that can be used if power outage. great savings. my electric bill has gone from 170.00 per month to about 40.00. I take what I save each month from power company and add more panels. I will soon have power company paying me. best investment I ever made. power company and all its employees hate solar, it cuts into their profits. my sujestion is they need to start building and selling and installing solar panels and keep their profits in clean energy.
