300w panels (big 2m x 1m) cost just under 5kbht from Amorn in most Tesco buildings. You can buy a 600w micro grid tie inverter for 5k from Lazada (can take 2 panels) That just plugs into you

Someone I know who lives near, spent a large amount of money on an entire roof full of approx 2ft x 4ft panels, I wont go through the whole story but the bottom line. It never worked, wasnt insta

I agree with the kawasaki its down to the lekky price. My monthly bill rarely goes over 600bt and those solar panels probably start at 15k bt for one as big as an A4(paper not Audi)   H

That just plugs into your nearest mains socket, no need to tell the leccy company (shhhhhhhhh.....)

 

Why don't I buy one,

well it takes five years to get your money back (assuming they work) and I only have a 90 day VISA.

All my 'investments' in Thailand are now determined by the length of my VISA.

(5k inverter takes 2 panels.)

That is not correct. a 5 k inverter can take up to 5000 watts. It can take 12 panels a 400 watts

5k as in 5000 THB, he said it's a 600W micro inverter.

It never worked, wasnt installed right, never had the agreements or connection to the "grid" promised , they didnt even exist and werent allowed either. All the promises turned to sh** and it was a complete con job, he got taken for a ride. He took them to court, got 300k judgement but has never been able to collect and now has, as last I knew, a shed full of around 40+ unused German solar panels.

Does he still have them? What does he want for them?

I'll find out for you, as last I heard they and all equipment was subject to an ongoing court battle.

Hardly seems worth it. 

 

Ironically Uk citizens must be mugs, spending at least 5k bt a month on electricity, they fall over themselves to take up offers of solar panels on their roof.

Horrendous they look....and they dont make any saving because the sun is out three days a year but instead they lowered the value of their now ugly house by 25%...

They got something right here

You do not understand the statements you are making . Modern solar panels can create energy without direct sunlight . That can be an advantage in that the solar panels will last longer and the bottom line will be in your favour .

Sweet set up.  How do you like the Solax inverter ?

 

Going the solar route soon, though not off-grid. 5KWS /  6,3kw / 1 phase / Solax inverter / 455w or 540w panels (still debating on panels).

Its pretty good, no complaints, we also have their batteries (changed to lithium about a month after that picture).
