    Some info on the first 8 days.

    Previous daily use average of 51kWh per 24 h cycle.

    Now, with the panels working we average 28.5 kWh from Eskom. A good saving!

    As we cannot yet go off grip in toto due to the current draw too much for the batteries to handle I was playing with the Eskom on and off.

    The plan is to run at night on Eskom when the draw is low. Have installed a timer to switch at predetermined times to try get a constant that works.

    That implies you are generating just over 20kWh per day. Pretty good for a 5kWp array.
