Re: solar refund near furure

Unless you have upwards of a 15kW solar array on your roof, you are never going to be in credit. With a fridge, freezer, TV (s) computers, washing machines and dryers, airconditioning systems, fans and lighting etc you will use the projected solar power produced by a 5kW system easily.Where do you live Neil?...in an insulated box in the back yard with candles for lighting?

Late payment fee.

I have had a gut full of energy companies who threaten to hit you with a late payment fee.Think about it for a second, here is the company that pays me an absolute pittance for solar FIT and the energy I export is sold back to me and others at 10 times the FIT price thereby making 900% profit and they still have the unmitigated gall to threaten me with a late fee???Someone needs to drag these silver spoon-fed cretins out of their ivory towers and welcome them to the REAL world.

Re: Solar Feed In Tariff

"If you have solar, you aren't paying those exorbitant prices though because you're generating your own energy on your roof."Well Kristal, I do have solar but it only makes power during the day and NOT at night, so your assumption that I'm not paying exorbitant prices for power that I have generated is blown out of the water straight away !! Honestly, I'd be happy to NOT get paid for daytime exported power as long as the power I used at night was reduced by the FIT amount. Not everybody here Kri ...

Re: Solar Feed In Tariff

For heaven's sake Kristal, stop towing the party line, you seem quite content to put up with being paid a pittance for energy that is sold back to us at prices that are highly exorbitant. It may not piss you off, but I am certain a greater majority of us ARE. This is nothing but a blatant rip-off, regardless of how you like to "spin" it.
