Is there a quicker payback time ?
Yes, invest in a system with Batteries (Energy Storage), then you instantly start consuming ALL the energy you Generate, and possibly NOT need to Purchase any energy from the Retailers!
If on the other hand you have Large amounts of abundant energy to sell, we suggest you investigate Power Ledger, there distribution system allows the Generator (YOU) to sell your excess energy to your neighbours or anyone using the same Distribution company, at a price you agree-upon, OR sell it into a Retailer, who in-turn sells it at Retail price to your neighbours & you only get 8~10cents kWh as a feed-in tarrif, that may cover the State Grid Service charges to remain Grid connected.
Note: The amount of Energy Harvested is dictated by the type of Solar Racking you use, Fixed/Tilted rooftop or ground mounted Solar is the least efficient, where Single and Dual Axis Solar Tracking units significantly increase the amount of energy harvested. That is why we recommend solar tracking units that suits your location.
If planning to Go Off-Grid using Solar Array & Gen-set, we highly advise you invest in the correct sized Battery storage, as battery storage is a lot cheaper long term than the fuel cost for a Generator, if your area is plagued by power outages & ever increasing power bills, a system with Solar, Batteries & Gen-Set, will provide a totally reliable and independent energy system!
To totally black-out-proof most premises, commonly you would only need a small 3.50kW Auto-start Gen-Set, as a GenSet would only need to start for an hour or two in the early hours of the morning, if you happen to drain the battery bank before Sunrise or during extended bad weather.
