Talk for yours please, or have you checked in every country from first world? In Spain they don´t. Are you saying Spain is not from first world?
In Canada they certainly don't and we're very much first world. Its exceedingly rare for any power supplier to pay anywhere close to the rate they sell for excess energy coming from homes. In many instances they dont want it period.
So your previous statement was completely unnacurate, or your country is not from first world eitherGreg Locock wrote: ↑Thu Apr 11, 2019 8:46 amNo, I pay 25 c /kWh for electricity I use.Over a year I generate 8 MWh, which more than pays for the electricity I draw overnight, which is about 1 MWh
I'm not surprised Canada doesn't have a feed in tariff, you are already 81% renewable. Why create the hassle of catering for solar feed in if it isn't needed?
Personally I think Solar owners should only have to pay the difference between what they import and export. eg you import 10kW's in a day and export 5kWh's leaving you with a bill for 5kWh's (but calculated over a month).Andres125sx wrote: ↑Fri Apr 12, 2019 7:13 amSo your previous statement was completely unnacurate, or your country is not from first world either
That´s exactly what I´m talking about, 10 cents for your energy, but they ask for 2.5 times that for theirs... To be fair it should be the other way around, as a small producer have higher costs per GWh than a big plant.
They have to protect their business obviously, but this is a perfect example about why capitalism need some limits, and please don´t get me wrong, comunism is much much worse, but some balance is always needed
My solar system has halved my electricity bill overall but if I had storage I think it would half again. The ROI just isn't there atm but if you could use your electric car as home storage to cover the peak power times it would be great.
That´s exactly what I was talking about, it should be same price and only pay the normal price for the net balance
But with storage then you have to add a battery cost, wich is very significant, both for its high price and its low lifespan, so the ROI would be increased significantlydjos wrote: ↑Fri Apr 12, 2019 8:36 amMy solar system has halved my electricity bill overall but if I had storage I think it would half again.

No, we already pay $1.09 AUD just to be on the grid so if we actually paid only for the excess power we used and they got any excess solar power for free it would encourage ppl to install sensible sized solar systems because there is no profit in over-sizing and exporting huge amounts of excess power.
