Grid_connected_solar_power:">Grid connected solar power:

Solar panels + grid inverter + new power meter + cables + installation - government rebates

Remote_connected_solar_power:">Remote connected solar power:

Solar panels + regulator + batteries + inverter + cables + installation - government rebates

Solar power cost is dependant on:

  • If you have grid power or are remote
  • The size of your power loads
  • If you desire to have zero power bills or just reduce them
  • The prices in your region, which vary round the world

Small solar systems could be just solar lights, solar security lights or small battery charging systems.

Larger solar systems could also contain inverters to runs mains equipment.
