Hello from Central Victoria


Recommended Posts

Hi

Just found this forum advertised whilst browsing Stereonet and thought..that’s for me 🙂

I look forward to learning and sharing info/ideas about renewable energy and related stuff, occasionally.... I do get sidetracked.

We had a 4kW solar system installed on our home in 2012 and haven’t paid for electricity since then.

On the contrary, we were lucky to get the Premium Feed in Tariff before it was cut and have been getting paid instead.

It is due to run out in 2024 so it will be time to install the batteries then.

I’m quite interested to learn more about retrofitting a small hatch as an EV. My aim is for an EV Hot Hatch.

 

Cheers

Phil

    • Hi Thanks for allowing me to join the site. I have a real passion for saving the environment from fossil fuels. I hope to do all I can to save our beautiful planet through spreading the word of recycling and renewables. 
    • Zappi itself works great ... it's the software side of things that definitely needs some work. I remain hopeful and continue to work through it.
    • How are you finding the Y? Everything you expected? Blows me away how many you see on the road now.
    • We've just bought our second home battery. The first one, a lead acid gel battery, has reached EOL. We've replaced it with 4x 3kWh GenZ LFP batteries. Each module has its own BMS, so if one module fails, the rest of the battery won't - vital when it's an hour and a half drive for our installer to fix the problem. It's connected to our 9kW of roof panels, DC coupled through a Selectronic SP PRO inverter. The system needs to be reliable as it powers our electric pump for our roof sprinklers, but as an added bonus, almost all our power bills are car charging power imports. We have a Tesla EVSE, but it's controlled by an app called ev.energy that only charges when Amber prices are low.
    • That's not good to hear; at least the Tesla EVSEs work!
