    Hi I wanted to know if the YC500i has a grid tie limiter built into it. I have a pre paid meter and want to prevent the feedback of power back onto the grid. I have heard that the prepaid meters in South Africa charge you for power flowing into your home and flowing back onto the grid. Answer:
    Hi DharmeshUnfortunately, the YC500i does not have any grid tie limitation built into it. Having said that, since the max power on a single 500i is 500W, as long as your household grid has a base load of 500W or more, it won't be a problem.If you want to go bigger, then yes, you would have to limit export. In this case, I would suggest checking out the smaller Solis inverters which have grid tie limiting. built-in (you just need to buy the current clamp that plugs into it.)Please don't hesitate to give me a call on 082 880 7102 if you have more questionsRegards Blake

    Hi, I would like to know how many panels I would need to run a household of 4? We currently use roughly 800kWh per month, which includes 2 geysers and a pool pump. Answer:
    Hi Chris, depending on where you live, you'd need around 18 - 20 panels. In this case a central inverter is far more cost effective. We have sent you a quote via your email address for an entire system so you can get an idea of costs involved. Regards Solar Shop Support

    Hello Can you please provide me with a bit more info regarding this specific offer. What is the max. output of this 'micro inverter'? And, how much kWh would this system generally generate, let's say in 10hours of sunlight? Does this micro inverter work on the same principle as hybrid inverters, in other words, connected to the main power and then feed into the system and eskom takes over again as soon as the sun sets? Answer:
    Hi Anton. Max output of this inverter is 500W. The kWh generated will depend on where in the country you are and what panels are connected. Typically throughout SA you can work on 5 "sun" hours per day on average in a year, so if you had 2 x 275Wp panels connected and they were correctly positioned, with no shading, you would be looking at around 2,7kWh per day.
