Well I finally got a call back from the Energy Matters people and I'm going ahead with my solar panels! I paid a deposit on the spot and they gave me a free wireless monitor. How cool! I am going to get a 2.5kW system with a 3kW inverter just in case I decide to upgrade later. Hubby doesn't mind because with the gross tariff feed-in system in NSW (60c per kWh!) we could pay off our system in about 4-5 years!
I can't wait! Keep an eye on this post for more updates!
