So I could get about 30kWh a day from a system like that? Let's see, that's three bucks a day, roughly cut my FPL bill in half, 4-5 year payback.
Down here, you'd need something like a 7.2 kW system (thirty, 240 watt panels) to average 30 kWh a day.
My 7.2 kW system cost $38,000 to install with microinverters. A central inverter would, probably, cost less, but I have partial shade issues to deal with. I, also, paid a bit more to get three anchor rails for each panel to the roof, rather than the typical, two rails per panel. It ain't going nowhere.
After the FPL rebate and the Federal tax credit, it only cost me a little over $12,000 when all was said and done.
