So­lar sys­tem may be faulty

R E : C o l l e e n W a l k e r , Opin­ion March 2

Colleen has tried to do the right thing. Her state­ment that her so­lar sys­tem has only saved her $ 29, flags some prob­lems though. I w o u l d b e g e t t i n g t h e in­staller out to check the sys­tem. There may be a tree shad­ing the sys­tem, or the in­verter may be faulty. To get the best per­for­mance out of your grid-con­nect so- lar sys­tem, you need to have your pool pump, a/ cs and hot wa­ter sys­tem con­nected to tar­iff 33. This en­ables you to ex­port more power out, and get the 44c in-feed in tar­iff via tar­iff 11 which your so­lar sys­tem is con­nected to. I did this on my house and my sum­mer elec­tric­ity bill went from $ 950 to $ 180. JOHN HO­RAN,

Gar­butt.
