Solar panels to recharge 5 off in series 12V accumulators during the day?

In Australia most grid slaves pay about 500 AUD per year (about 290 GBP) just for the privilege of an electricity connection. Usage Charges are on top of that. Talk about a scam. Anyway, these need to be taken into account, not just the KWh prices.

What device are you powering, by the way?



 

Chris Wilson:
We would need to pay the connection charge come what may, as there's no way I would make all the hassling changes to try and be independent of it, although i do know two people here in the UK who claim running a modern diesel 3 phase generator on red diesel (tax subsidized) diesel by night and solar / storage by day is cheaper, but i am skeptical). I am running an RF amplifier most nights, and it uses a minimum of 1kW input. But with those costings I'll just keep sending the electric company a cheque each quarter :)
