    Must agree. Their service levels are crappy especially if you compare them to a company like SolarMD which is available 24/7 7 days a week.

    I am completely off-grid (for 3 months now) .


    Did I do it for the investment?

    Hell NO

    BUT

    ROI = 6 years and 7 months without increases from Eskom.

    Yip, SolarMD. Hulle naverkoop diens is uit die boonste rakke. Selfs beter as MC s'n.

    Thanks.

    Re: KZTE Torque bolts

    Make sure you get a head gasket from Toyota. 5 knots is the thickest one you can get and is normally recommended if you do a head job.

    A little bit off topic, but since opinions are shared...

    I have a Microcare "system". In short:

    2x 60A MPPT's
    10kW Inverter
    24x PV panels

    What is/are the opinion/s of MicroCare?

    .... but that is for costs that is 10 years old....I guess. I bought a 6kW solar array for R40K not R137K. So R200K is a good "guess" for a system.
