     Ideally install on a south-facing roof with no shading from trees or adjoining property.

Case Study:

     An array of 12 photo voltaic modules installed on an east-facing roof not ideal on 15th December 2009.

Rating:     2.53 kW      
Cost:     13,686.05     (Prices are about 4,000 to 5,000 at the moment)


     Projected Annual Generation:   1,912 kWh

     Actual Generated:     15th December 2009 to 15th December 2010:   2,352 kWh

     Actual Generated:     15th December 2010 to 15th December 2011:   2,223 kWh

     Actual Generated:     15th December 2011 to 15th December 2012:   2,068 kWh

     Actual Generated:     15th December 2012 to 15th December 2013:   2,224 kWh

     Actual Generated:     15th December 2013 to 15th December 2014:   2,268 kWh
