    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.

    However I can't complain about the service after level 5...

    Re: please help me calculate....

    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.

    Not much discussed. The only negative I could pick up was that it is expensive, but currently 2 months off-grid with no issues.

    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?

    Replaced my KZ-TE's head 150k km ago. NO re-torque done after 1000km. Did it as in point 3 all at once. Just make sure to follow the torque sequence.

    2) Weather

  29. Re: Going solar - a success story - totally off the grid

    .... 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.
