People installing generator sockets on there houses. There has been lot of power outages lately in the Mid North coast Essential Energy area and i have heard people are putting generator sockets on there home don’t do it you could kill some one. This neds to be done by a licensed electrician and applied to be and approved by Essential Energy. this not a joke electricity is dangerous and you could KILL A LINES MAN. Your generator will back feed back unto the overhead power line and become 11000 volts Again this is not a joke Essential Energy will peruse you through the courts and so Will the Department of Fair Trading. They don’t stop biting until they have got you and your life will be in ruins they both take this very seriously so make sure you get an electrician to do this work. That has got approval from essential Energy.
My recent experience of people wanting a cheap solar system. We are asked a lot to price solar systems which is fair enough. But with cheaper company’s that are not local. when they have made the sale and they don’t want to know you. After all why would they they have been paid and anyway they are sitting in a nice shiny building three hundred kilometers away. This to me doesn’t make sense from a customers point of view. I have heard frustrated customer then come back to me To ask me to fix there solar system. All because they got a cheap solar system installed and saved a few hundred dollars .The usual story is the Electrician can’t get there for a month if at all. Or the solar company phones me up to fix there system.The moral of the story get a local company who installs good quality solar components and does good quality and that they are licensed Electricians because there is some shocking workmanship out there.
Ending of the Sixty Cents & What You Will Need to Do!
According to the NSW Government, the Solar Bonus Scheme will end on the 31st December 2016.
What You Need To Do
You will need to change your current gross meter on your main switch board to a net meter. If you fail to do this, everything your system produces will be fed into the Grid and you will be credited for this at a rate of approx. 7 cents per Kilowatt/hour. Contact your Energy Retailer for their rates. So in other words, you will get no benefit from your solar.
