The cost of solar power can be deceptive-Case in point
My Father in Laws Tipi camping business, he needed some poer for lights in the toilet / shower block and to run the UV filter for the drinking water.
Two courses of action available to him.
1, Hardwire into the national grid £10K plus bills for evermore
2, Get a solar installer to install a system for us £6K and no bills, however as we weren't connected to the grid we didn't qualify for a grant (upto 50%
So I went on line, found a good helpful company, bought 2 solar panels, wiring and the invertors and charges controllers for £1700 it took half a day to fit and works fine, we have no bills from it and it fits in well with the ethos of the place - job done
IMHO if you are building a new house and you can wire every light up as 12v DC and only use low voltage 240v appliances it can be feasable, but you will have to compromise your lifestyle for it.
Last report I heard said it take 100 years to break even on a solar setup, but as my example shows we are being ripped off in a big way, again....
