Let me know what u think. 

I like the way the components are neatly mounted on a board.

8 x 315w Canadian Solar panels.

Tell me please. What are these “half cell” panels really like? Reading about them online it seems there is a lot of hype about them. Do they really perform better than the full cell panels?

Hi I'm not sure if they are better but from the reading it looks quite good. The installation was done last weekend and it's been cloudy and rainy since . Will give more feedback once we have good weather 

Hi I just want to give u some feedback on this system. We added 4 more panels to the original 8. We did a full load test to see what we can achieve with it and the maximum we got with everything running on the inverter was 3.48kw.

We were running a 9000btu air conditioner, Gaming pc with monitor, 60" TV with accessories, swimming pool pump, 4 pumps for fish ponds, all the lights in the 3 bedroom house and 3 Fridges. 

We reduced the daily cons of this house by 16 units and it's been running smoothly for 2 weeks now.
