Solar Income & ROI calculator

This solar calculator system allows you to estimate the income of a solar system over many years. It also allows you to compare a high quality system income stream versus a 2nd  lower priced/ less efficient system. It enables you to work out which solar power system gives you a better return on investment over the life of your solar system.

Lifestyle

Your solar system will generate electricity all day. Your electricity consumption will sometimes be more than your system generates and sometime less. When it is less you will export electricity and potentially get a feed in tariff paid. Please estimate how much of your solar system generation will be consumed within your house vs solar electricity being exported.
