  1. Hi all, my solar system has been running for a year now and I am not satisfied with the performance I am getting. I am looking for an expert to check the batteries, check the panels and most of all program the inverters for what I want (not - "the default is the best setting"). If nothing else, tell me I was talked into a dumb deal. I am quite happy to pay for a sensible report. Please contact me off-line.

  2. Thanks, @Tariq. Seems I got the wrong kit. Halved usage from 400kWh to 200 per month. An expensive UPS!
  3. Hello all, This thread seems to be discussing efficiencies and calculations of what can be got out of a solar installation. This is my setup running for about a year now.

  4. Hello @Coulomb, Thanks for replying. It seems like a clone and I have set SBU. On a good sunny day battery reached 53.9 - 54.1 on the display. I changed 27 Float to 56.0 (it was 54) and now the reading is 56). That was easy! I know the settings are interrelated. Could you give better suggestions for 26, 29 and maybe others? They are still on factory settings. For example, would 16 OSO save Eskom use? J
  5. Hello all, maybe 'introduce yourself' was not the best place for this post but i won't cross post. Possibly @plonkster , @Pietpower , @Coulomb or someone else would care to comment first on whether I can benefit from fine-tuning the inverter settings based on the installed capacities of batteries and panels and my stated aim? Thanks a lot, J
  6. Hello all, This is my installation which has been running since just before lock down in Pretoria. My home is a small, two-bedroom unit. · 18x 340W/375WP A++MULTIC PERc SCHR 50VP panels · 2x HYBRD SMRT+SchAexKl 5KW 48V9KVAP 6KVAP MPT 1/3PHAPROG manufactured 12 2019 from the label · 8x Schubart 6-GFM-240J 12V 240AH · 1x Geyser collector panelRetr150/215LP BlackCobal2M EFFITEMP/HP · 1x Circulation G-Pump 12VDC 10L/min2.5M head 100CelsiusBR · 1x Solar panel 10 Watt SM ADVANCED A+GRAD 18 VOC Previously i
  7. Good morning all, I wish I had known about this forum before embarking on my recent solar journey. Fantastic sources of information. Thank you for approving my registration. My first question concerns batteries. I was quoted for 12V 240/280AP FTM8 SCHUBRT GL DEEPc BLACK and just before lockdown Schubart 6-GFM-240J 12V 240AH were delivered. Can these be considered 'the same' to all intents and purposes? Apart from 12V and 240 the code letters mean nothing to me. The supplier is in lockdown and I would prefer an independent opinion anyway. Thanks in advance. Jef
