    Re: Backup System - Budget R70k

    You should be able to get 2x 2.4kw pytlontech, Goodwe Es4.6 Inverter installed with COC (this does not include solar) for around 70k.

    If it costs you much more, you are being ripped a new one!

    Thanks. I would never have thought it possible, as the norm seems to be an expect 75% deliver on average.
