    I have just commissioned a 2KW solar grid connect. So far it appears to be yielding 10 KWh of power per day. In my state the electricity provider will pay me $0.42 per KWh for any surplus energy that I feed back to the grid. I then buy back when my array is idle for $0.17 per KWh.

    My average load during the day is 350-600 watts. At this time of the month the inverter injects 10 KWh per day into the grid.

    My daily usage is around 12-17 KWh meaning the solar provides around 60-80% of the power I use.

    Financially it will take a couple of months to get a full picture of what I will pay out for power. Obviously this time of the year will be a little higher due to higher solar hours. I have been told to expect a year long average of around 8 KVa per day.
