I bought 8 x 405w Jinko cheetah, cables, mounting kits.

I only use 17kwh to 20kwh per day with my two geysers on geyserwise timers. my primary goal is to reduce electricity bill. 

i will switch on the geysers during the day for about 1 hour each at a time to store excess solar energy.

Highly recommend a Sunsynk, great inverter inverter, easy to set up and easy to use, a lot of Powerforum members have it, would say go for the 5 kW model, I run a 2 kW geyser, 1.1 kW pool pump and about 500 watts of general loads, the geyser is on 3 to 4 hours, pool pump at least 6 hours and every so often microwave and kettle

   You could buy the 3.6 kW inverter , if your loads are around 2.5 kW consistently

I would also recommend the sunsynk inverter. Just remember that without a battery it will switch off during load shedding even during the day when their is enough solar. Even a small battery will allow you to use it during the day during load shedding.

Thanks Tariq

Your load profile is almost similar to my house.

Due to budget constrain, i can afford deye 3.6kw hope is less than R12000. however i dont see anyone selling these range in south africa.

they only sell 5kw and 8kw 

 

Deye is branded as Sunsynk in SA so it's basically the same OEM product, and yes as @Tariqsays, you are unlikely to hit that R12,000 mark price wise.

Your options :

1. Without Batteries Solis or Kodac 3.6 kW grid tie inverter -  you will get them for under R10 000. - you will get 20 - 25 units per day with your panels . 

2. With Batteries - get the Axpert King  5kW - probably in the R12 - 14 000 range - will give you the option to sun when the grid is off .

or 3kw Axpert 24 V - probably arround R7000 - also only needs 24 V batteries - so 2 x 100Ah lead acid or a 24V LiION such as the Pylonteck or BlueNova Mini .

3. 5k Sunsynk - about R18 000 - R20 000 : Hybrid - you can run offgrid and also feedback - best of both worlds . Stick to the Sunsynk - better support and better software.

 

My setup : Solis 4.6G with 10x455w Ja Solar panels - gives me 15 - 30units per day dependent on how I manage my load .

I have a 3kW 24 V Axpert that I run as a UPS for critical loads when the power is off . 

Works well and is very cost effective .

Update

I bought a infinisolar inverter at 50% Deye price. 

RCT Infinisolar V2 3KVA 48V On-Grid Hybrid Inverter 48V DC; 4000W 450V DC MPPT Solar Charger for R8700.00

InfiniSolar is a hybrid inverter which combines solar system, AC utility, and battery power source to supply continuous power. It is suitable for remote areas where the cost of utility is too high or emergency usage when utility is not stable.
 
Main Features
===========
Pure sine wave output
Self-consumption and Feed-in to the grid
Programmable supply priority for PV, Battery or Grid
User-adjustable battery charging current suits different types of batteries
Programmable multiple operation modes: Grid-tie, off-grid and grid-tie with backup
Built-in timer for various mode of on/off operation
Multiple communication for USB, RS-232, Modbus and SNMP
Monitoring software for real-time status display and control
Parallel operation up to 6 units for 5KW and 10KW

Now I must figure out how to connect inverter to main DB safe and easy. the main connection advantage of infinisolar is i dont have to split my main db board into essential and non essential. plus it works with/without batteries. i will connect it grid tied without batteries and the reduced electricity bill will help me save for a 3.5kw lithium phosphate battery.

Thanks all for your input. the Sunsynk 3.6kw is almost R19000.

I will rather wait for few weeks until i  get what i desire a 5kw deye inverter.

regards 

That's crazy pricing for a 3k Sunsynk, you ought to have approached the Powerforum Store for a decent quote. I hope that you are happy with your RCT though.

Hi 1Ought,

How do you like your Solis 4g? Is it user friendly? Do you have any issues with it?
