Green energy economics : Comments

By Stephen Cable, published 21/4/2017

Like a knight in shining green armour they’re riding over the energy landscape on a policy steed to save you ‘up to’ $370 per year.

Bit early for policy, policy needs to reflect the situation at the time of election. You should be interested in policy of the incumbent govt. which of course is in disarray.

They make it one day and discard it the next.

My biggest battery is 650 amp hours. And weighs 75 kg,s that runs a fridge, freezer, and all lighting 24/7. It would not start a car as it has no cranking value.
A different barttery for micro wave, toaster and jug.
I have two transfer pumps running directly on solar panels.
Anyone that does not get with the solar revolution is either decrepit or lost in time.
It,s free for the collecting.

Hi doog, i discover your suggestion is one of the best. Getting solar can do a lot of help.

Doog.

How many years will your big battery last and what is the replacement cost?

Add that cost to the free energy.

$650 in 2008. 250 watt solar panels x two $ 380 ea.
My big battery has a replacement guarantee of 15 years so I would expect 20 years.
The solar panels have a guarantee for 25 years.
Good value for money.
Probably the best investment ever to add to the house.
