    23.000€ New install, generator kicks in most nights. Normal?

    Yes, understandable. Like you said, from what one can see on invoice compared to online seems fair, especially when keeping the 21% IVA on top of it all 😑 = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = Note: Cells look like they are wet cells, you might need to top-up them...

    23.000€ New install, generator kicks in most nights. Normal?

    Thanks @DJSmiley, My father is putting things together for me at the moment, so I thought I would add what I have now too. I still need to go over your costs, but from what I could see at a glance I think its pretty much whats listed on the invoice. I have attached some parts of the invoice, my...

    23.000€ New install, generator kicks in most nights. Normal?

    Small update, my father just sent me a close up of the top of the battery. It shows a GNB stamp/logo. Ive googled GNB, but from what I can see, none of ther batteries look like the ones my father has. So not sure of these are GNB batteries, of if the installers just used a GNB cap of sorts? Not...

    I also just wanted to send a message to everyone thats replied and that will still reply. Thanks again! Every bit helps, and I hope I can get to the bottom of this in some way, as my father would be over the moon knowing that he can safely watch TV after dark and not worry about a huge generator...

    Hi Steve_S, Thanks for your reply. Im not going to lie, I probably got a % of what you are probably explaining to me. 😌 What I can answer is the following: 1. The only battery details I can find are: ACUMULADOR 10 OPZS 1550AH C5, not much in terms of brand etc 😔 2. The stove has no electrical...

    23.000€ New install, generator kicks in most nights. Normal?

    My thought is that something is not setup correctly. My first red flag was when the technician came over to finalize the setup, he was doing it all via his laptop. But the issue was that this took him over 5 hours, he was going back and forth to his van looking for the right cable for some...

    23.000€ New install, generator kicks in most nights. Normal?

    From what I could tell when they installed the setup, they kept some of the old wiring etc, but lots was replaced too, they had left all the old wiring and hardware behind for us to dispose of once done. When you say to run a huge load. During the day when the sun is out it works as expected...

    23.000€ New install, generator kicks in most nights. Normal?

    Hi, thanks for the feedback. The leak you see there is from the old batteries, the same platform/location was used where the new setup is done. I was actually at the house the day the van dropped off the batteries and they were definitely new, wrapped up and all. I was however surprised how...

    Hey all, I dont even know what to say, but thought id say hi first and already ask for forgiveness to what will probably be absolutely stupid questions. I know maybe 1% about solar and am trying to help my father out, as his system is really not great in my opinion, and for the money it cost...
