    I really don't think you have saved 6.7 kg of Sodium Dioxide in your efforts to save the plant.

    There are formulas for calculating the amounts saved by exporting solar to the grid. I don't have the details.

    Yes, calculated from the inverter.

Technically I haven't paid a power bill since install, although I actually did have to pay one or two, when my solar hot water outlet nearly blocked up totally, so I was having to heat the tank up every day to get any useable hot water.
    That's good to hear about the REC panels, as it confirms my research.
    Our original REC panels, installed by the previous owner, were tested and working well. The new REC panels are divided into halves, so half can operate if the other half is shaded, which is good. They have a 25 year warranty. So far it's going well.

    You might have to have a think about what the difference is between Sodium Dioxide (NaO2) and Sulphur Dioxide (SO2)

    Yes, true, I meant sulphur. I'll blame auto-correct.
