This system is in a leafy suburb of Pretoria called Newlands. It is a 3kW thin film system with Solar Frontier panels and a Steca inverter. We used roof brackets we manufacture ourselves.We did an assessment of the clients needs and worked out that a 3kW system would be adequate. This client is already managing his consumption very effectively.
The client was anxious to reduce his electricity consumption and understood clearly that this is a grid tied system that will also go down should the gird fail. To this end he is now looking at installing a small battery backup system.
In the meantime the client reports excellent production. Peak production on 24th Nov was an amazing 18.5kW for the day . Dec 2014 UPDATE: The client report total production of 427kWh for the month of December, that is almost 85% of his total monthly consumption. Now that is impressive!
