No that is before a $7000 rebate from the state of Hawaii. Because it is not my primary residence I do not qualify for the federal tax credit
The forum for all aspects of the Nissan Leaf
How is that so cheap then? That's $2.5 a watt which is probably less than most people pay for just the materialsdowneykp wrote:No that is before a $7000 rebate from the state of Hawaii. Because it is not my primary residence I do not qualify for the federal tax credit
It's just about done. It took more time than I thought to get HOA approval and the county permit. In both cases Mark's designs were approved with no problem, but each process took time. They started the install this week and should be done by the middle or end of next week. So far it seems excellent. The materials are in my garage and they are definitely the brands he quoted (Canadian Solar and Enphase microinverters). The brackets are already on the roof, and the panels go up Mon or Tuesday.QueenBee wrote:Craig, I've corresponded with Mark a few times and I really like his attitude. His pricing is excellent so I suspect he'll keep himself pretty busy. How did your install go?LindaK wrote:Sounds like a pretty big system. Are you powering your house too? Or do you just drive a heck of a lot more than me?
I am doing an expansion of my existing system. Adding 12 cheap chinese made 240W Talesun panels, with M190 micro-inverters.craigmartell wrote:ALL:,
I just wanted to follow up on my installation by Mother Nature Solar. Mark and his team did a kick a$$ job. Everything went smoothly, and they even stayed in local motels (they live pretty far away) just to maximize the time on the job. I couldn't be happier with the bid or the job done.
I am now producing up to 37kWh per day! Last month we used 1400 kWh (we have both a Leaf and a Volt). Next month, about 1000 kWh of that should be taken care of by solar.
Before PG&E rebate and tax credit, I paid $3.79/W. After the rebate and tax credit it will be about $2.50/W.
