Solar system performance review
When it comes to choosing the right solar PV (photovoltaic) system for your house, it can seem like the market is flooded with options and all of them look the same. So, do you go for Chinese solar panels or German solar panels? Should you pay a premium for a Sunny Boy inverter, or is a generic one going to do you just fine? Will you see the sorts of savings your solar installer promised, or are you going to be disappointed by the reality of how much energy your PV system produces?CHOICE consumer magazie
To help answer these questions, we conducted a performance review of this residential solar power system after one full year of operation, . The stunning news is, the system is performing 7% better than promised. Higher output = higher cost savings. It really shows it’s worth to invest into a genuine quality solar power system. Not only will it perform better, it will also give you peace of mind.
SOLAR ENERGY OUTPUT
|Forecast solar output kWh||Forecast average kWh/day||Actual output kWh/day||Over/under-performance|
|Note: Green = over-performance, red = under-performance|
Overall, this solar panel system is performing 7% better than calculated and promised to the client.
