    7.6kwp installed in different phases over the last 3-4 years, mostly DIY with a roofer installing the 5 panels on my high roof and an electrician hooking up the inverters

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,269 ✭✭✭bullit_dodger an awesome job! (Great price too - one of the better ones, if not the best I've seen)

    You'll have the bitcoin mining starting soon! :-)

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,542 ✭✭✭THE ALM

    Thanks bullit_dodger, yip happy out with it for sure.

    Looking at recent quotes I did luck out alright.

  • Registered Users Posts: 188 ✭✭ELCAT2009

    Great prices for sure...i paid similar for 6.1 kw (18 panels) . Mind you I needed 8 optimizers and roof was much higher as a dormer and 2 separate roof elevations. The puredrive batter looks really neat!

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,791 ✭✭✭paulbok

    6.84kwp due to be installed next week so will update the doc once complete.

    Going to ease the panels into production this time of year 😜

    Would it be an idea to have columns for pre and post-install BER ratings, so people could see how their BER might improve? Would probably need house size too to compare...

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,269 ✭✭✭bullit_dodger

    As the person who created the spreadsheet, no objection here. Although as you say I wonder about the usefulness. For example, if I list I went from C3->B2 but I did a whole host of things like putting a lagging jacket on the immersion, might not be so obvious to the reader as to what the effect of Solar was. But feel free to modify if you can come up with a good format.

    7.48kWp installed yesterday. Sheet updated

    There's a formula to show the BER improvement, much easier just to use that as it's specific to PV install

    I think it's kWp X 1.47 / M2 of house, I could be wrong on that though so open to correction

  • Registered Users Posts: 11,985 ✭✭✭✭DrPhilG

    Would be interesting too to see what people had been quoted before coming here and getting good advice.

    Calculate the savings that this forum has provided.

  • Moderators, Education Moderators, Home & Garden Moderators Posts: 7,919 Mod ✭✭✭✭Jonathan

    It's a bit more involved that that as it takes into account the slope and the azimuth of the panels... The formula provided above is for panels facing due south at 30° if I remember correctly.
