    Re: Goodwe versus Victron

    You are right but as a value one would normally want to know is the kWh in a hour, day, week, etc.

    It's like saying my car speed is 500km - timeframe?

    Re: New system...neat

    May be there is limitations with respect to space for more panels?

    On would think after 12years of using a system it is fit for purpose as we all have different requirements.

    Actually fuses are short circuit protection and are generally rated at 2 times the full load so 125A is spot on.

    Somewhere someone is talking BS in order to get the price low as DC stuff are expensive.

    Easy if you have solar panels to test say a 5A AC breaker and see if it trips.
