Dick's house in France

Google Translate  GOOGLE TRADUIRE


With 19 PV panels facing due south, with a maximum power of nearly 5 Kw, the house generates a lot of electricity.

Some of the electricity is used in the house - so, for instance, the washing machine and dishwasher are used during daylight hours.

Most of the electricity, the surplus, is sold to EDF, for which there is a small payment, not as generous as the UK FIT scheme, but enough to give a return of over 5%, tax free, on the capital cost.

​I still have to buy electricity, of course, but I expect the income from EDF to be very nearly the same as the bills.
