Whoops .. your right it should have read one point five kw/ hr.

 I'm a medically & stroke induced dyslexic .. it's only now several days later after reading your comment that I see the mistake .

Thanks for being my  proof reader .

 Tomorrow the energy efficiency guy ( unrelated to the AMGEN set up )is due to do the necessary survey for the bungalow , we had a mad quarter of hour locating the roof void and cavity wall insulation warrantee papers of five years ago this morning  .
 I'm so pleased that we always keep house paperwork like that . It helps to sell the home in the future if needed.

That's not too bad considering the foul weather and poor light  conditions.
 So far we have produced ...wait for it   :innocent:...... 5.26 Kw /hr. over the three days of having it up and running  :roflanim: :roflanim:
 Today took in just under  3Kw/hr. depite several sleet showers and plenty of rain ,
We did indeed occasionally see that funny big yellow egg yolk thing  in the sky as well .

Yes, we had 4kWp installed in mid December - on a day when the wind was howling and there was a white out - felt a bit sorry for the lads on the roof who carried on to finish the job!

We've had an Immersun fitted too - even at this time of year we can see the electricity heating up the water in the tank - hopefully it'll save a bit on the oil.

I'm curious - I had a quote a couple of years ago when the start up feedback rate was very high (40 pence or so I think )  I couldn't face spending £14K!   If I had gone ahead would I still be getting that or did the rate cut affect those who had installed at the high rate as well as new installations?

If you applied and were installed up and running by the cut off date you still got the high rate doganjo

Now about 46p I think, as it's index linked.

What's the going rate fro new installations?  I keep getting calls and I just don't believe their figures.

We had ours installed in mid Dec 2013 - we get 14.9p per unit generated and 4.64p per unit exported. It's not usual for a domestic installation to have an export meter to actually measure the exported amount. It is assumed that we export 50% of the units we generate.

The tariffs are still index linked, and we get paid for 20 years. 

The price of the installation has come down considerably - it should be possible to get a 4kWp array installed for about 6.5K

 Our pprice for the most uptodate all singing all dancing high efficiency panels and Samil power inverter was £5.6K inc VAT reimbursed though at the current FIT .

 I guess that in comparison our lower set up and lower FIt will not be so far out wrt the finals financial reckoning on someone who had the more expensive systems of four or five years ago at the end of the day  & paid for them with a loan .
If you had the cash to spare your on a winner well and truly apparently .

" Navitron " is a micro generation site that seems full of useful info it your thinking of " getting your feet wet " and don't know if you need wellies , boots or bare feet so to speak .
