Since moving to Queensland, we have watched with interest the changes in the price of solar installations and also found that there are a number of 'cowboys' out there offering cheap installations but with inferior inverters and panels.
The prices for the 'good' companies started off around the $8000 mark and within a few months dropped dramatically by $2000.
At this price we thought we would be crazy not to go ahead and so today we had our 20 panels and 5 KW Sunnyboy Inverter installed.
Today we had the concreting around the pool complete ready for tiling. We have decided to go with a 600 x 600 tile rather than paver so that we can create a seamless transition from the poolside to the water edge.
