Solar Performance in Melbourne
The 9.88kWp solar power system installed in Toorak Melbourne is capable of generating an annual solar electricity production of 13343kWh per year, with a daily average of 36.6kWh per day. The average summer daily output is expected to be approximately 50kWh per day with the winter average output dropping to around 30kWh per day.
The JA solar power system is expected to generate annual power bill savings of $3,596 per year, with an expected payback period of 3.6 years and a return on investment of 27.8% per annum. The expected savings generated by this solar power system is expected to be over $90,000 dollars over the 25 year warranty period of the solar panels.
The solar installation took approximately 60 hours, with much electrical work due to the internal switchboard and dense building contruction. The panels were positioned on a 3 storey roof on a 30 degree tilt frame, and connected to a 3 Phase SMA inverter.
