First statement under N.E.M agreement . Consumption 436kwh net generation - 944 kwh Net usage -508 kwh This was for 32 billing days total bill $10.51 minimum Delivery charge . Last year at this time $166 dollars . No changes to the way we use power but for the next billing period I changed out a worn water pump should see a decrease in usage for time period even with hot weather . A happy new solar owner . I may need to add a heat pump / air conditioner to use the surplus generation ?

    Assuming the Enphase 250 are rated for use with the Solar World 285 Watt panels--It should be fine. From what I can find about the two, they should be compatible.

    If the panels are mounted "low to the ground", you will probably need a fence around the panels and be very careful when mowing (rocks tossed by lawn mower) and kids (rocks and balls tossed by kids).

    The Enphase need an "Envoy" to gather data from the micro inverters, and an Internet connection (full time?).

    Note that a "standard" GT inverter system shuts down if the grid fails (storm, traffic accidents, etc.). No emergency backup power.

    Your utility can have different rate plans/requirements as the systems grow in size (many utilities can make residential systems >10 kWatts difficult to install--under their rules).
