Solar saver 10kw limit

Switched-on

Hi. I have a 17kw system (12kw and 5kw, 3 phase inverter). Is this 10kw limit per phase? Would I be eligible for this plan? Thanks

Hi Royboy,

 

Thank you for getting in touch!

 

The 10KW limit applies to the overall size of your system, so you would not be eligible I'm sorry to say.

 

Kind regards,

Hi @jaydeny I'm looking at upgrading my single phase system from 3kw inverter to 8.2kw Fronius inverter... installer is recommending 10.7kw panel configuration with the 8.2kw inverter and says I should be eligible for the Solar Saver plan as 10kw max size limit refers to inverter size. Can you confirm if this is the case, it seems to make sense as inverter determines max production at any one time - but want to make sure I'm eligible for the 20c feed in tariff.

Hi GamblorG,

 

Great question!

 

So long as your inverter size is equal to or less than 10kW, you'll be fine.

 

Cheers,

Hi @jaydeny,

 

Would it be possible to update the ads/documentation to make it clear whether it’s an inverter or panel limit? Last time I looked it just said “System”. I interpreted that as inverter initially, but when I inquired on the phone at the time (9 months ago), they said it was panels. 

 

Thanks for putting me straight @jaydeny. I might need to expand our system!

Hi donw,

 

Thank you for your feedback!

 

This information is included in the "fine print" of these advertisements, but it sounds like we could be making this clearer so I'll forward on your feedback.

 

Kind regards,
