    That's great. I reckon it will cool the roof.
    Is this new solar or an extension? Are you adding a battery bank?
    Sorry to be nosy. We're planning to upgrade our solar at Maleny next year, so I'm gathering information.

    makes no apparent difference
    new install
    not at this stage, the sums don't add up to it being worth it at the moment.

    AGM battery banks are cost-effective but lithium are still pricey.
