Photovoltaic solar

Are photovoltaic solar panel popular here? I am from Hawaii and this system is very popular. Instead of the old batteries in the attic. It supplies power to your meter and it runs backward during the day and forwards during the night.

They are available, with higher incentives for Turkish made hardware.

Here are some useful links for background from my previous research to get you started

Re: Photovoltaic solar

We are also working on this but do your research carefully, most companies will claim much bigger return than you will get.

Unfortunately Turkey still imposes 18% VAT on these products. It is easier to get permission for roof top projects. Look at Sahibinden Sat?l?k, Kiral?k, Emlak, Oto, Al??veri? Ürünleri and select English (bottom right) then Electricity and energy. The site seems to be down at this moment. Try a little later.

I did not understand the Izmir page at all. Can someone tell this dummy what it means?

I then read the PV Magazine article and it kept referring to a FIT which it did not define. "A feed-in tariff...standard offer contract advanced renewable tariff or renewable energy payments is a policy mechanism designed to accelerate investment in renewable energy technologies."

It also does not define but refers to PPA's: "A power purchase agreement (PPA) is a contract between two parties, one who generates electricity for the purpose (the seller) and one who is looking to purchase electricity (the buyer)."

I guess the PV article is for the industry geeks?

Re: Photovoltaic solar

I don't know very much except that the 'F.I.T' (Feed In Tariff)' is the amount of money they pay you for feeding into the grid the electric that you produce.

Although a UK installation, maybe Christella who has a setup in the UK may be able to help.

The "they" are the other customers who don't or can't have spv systems who pay more on their bills to subsidise the fit, UKIP previously said they would stop the green energy supplement, I hope they stick to that.

Thanks Martin.

So once more I get it wrong, I was under the impression that the F.I.T. payments were made from the energy suppliers for what you produce, but less the amount you use from the grid, so a bit like a excess payment.

(I don't know the first thing about or what 'SPV' is.)
So I'll leave it there and let those who know jump in.

Re: Photovoltaic solar

We all pay a kind of green tax on our bills and that funds the payments, in the scheme of things it's a very expensive form of energy production funded mainly by those that can't have it ie the poorest in society.
Spv is just solar photovoltaic.

Re: Photovoltaic solar

At first glance. Sounds like the same red tape back in Hawaii. You have to wait for the electric company to approve your connection to the grid. And areas have limits on how many people can hook up to the grid. The Systems in the US are highly subsidized. So it would cost you 20k to install the system and get a 10k tax credit. Thought the BS would be less here. I know the equipment itself does not cost anywhere near the 10k mark. Saw a clip on TV about a guy in India that put a system on his house that cost about 3k US dollars. Has anyone heard of a Solar air conditioning system in Turkey? Just started to hear of them before I left. They use three panels and have batteries in the AC unit. Its a stand alone system so it did not need to be approved by the electric company.
