My Solar Project in Long Island - email me for advice on SOLAR

After being scammed by Voltacon I regrouped and finally have solar working as of August 20th, 2016. I wasted a lot of time with friends who were in the Solar business and tried to scam me; I had the biggest solar contractors who proposed to build me systems from 13KW to 15KW and the proposals were around USD 72k to USD 85K without any rebates, discounts, tax deductions – so essentially these are all scams. No one needs such huge systems as in my opinion the best thing way to start is to build solar power system to generate enough power for your average use.

I decided to go with  a Fronius 10K inverter and LG265Watt Solar panels, the inverter was around USD 3K and the Solar Panels were around USD 6K. However the inverter didn’t include any monitoring capabilities – these were optional cards. I did purchase the WLAN and Ethernet Datacom card and waiting to install them as of 08/26/2016

The inverter allows you to have multiple arrays of PV panels, I started with the part of the roof with peak sunlight, 10 PV Solar panels were directly under the southern exposed sunlight for 6 hours – peaking around noon time; the other two PV arrays were to compensate for when the sun moves from East to West – these PV panels get the extra power that I needed as the sun sets and I am generating significant power from 7am to 6pm.

I don’t have any data or reports – but will post them here as soon as they are available; although I am producing more power  than I am using – I am not on any NET Metering plans – as I understand PSEGLI charges customers more money for the power usage after sunset; and they are lobbying to stop rebates, subsidies for Solar customers – so I am wondering what will happen to people who invested large sums into their Solar Projects and selling their GREEN power to the utility currently with the ROI model that includes the utility paying them for unused power ????
