New 6kw system up and running.
Hi all, Greetings from west central Florida. I'm not as adventurous as some of you hands on guys, so I had a system installed. And it works! After a year of talking & thinking about it, we went for it. My system consists of (24) 250W American Choice solar panels, and an Aurora Power One PVI 6000 inverter. All this is monitored by TED 5000C. I went for a solar water heater at the same time. With an AET Solar 40,000BTU collector & 80 gallon storage tank. The system has been up and working for close to four months now. Our electric bill has dropped from over $200 per month to under $100. June 2010 electric bill was $244, June 2011 was $99. I also recently replaced the older energy sucking pool pump with a variable speed unit. I think we're headed in the right direction. I welcome any comments, suggestions, advise or criticism.
