This plug & play is a sick joke. Nothing new as every green site and many DIY sites would love to see such a thing.
Their 'anti islanding' feature to isolate the system during times when the grid is down is talked up. Does this meet national electric code? Not nice to kill linemen with your PV.
The writer is confused about the prices. To make the assumption the higher price is for the 1000 watt unit is a bit of a leap in faith and shows a total lack of understanding about system component costs.
This is an attempt to get into a impulse buyer market where the knowledge base is below minimal.I hope Clarian is stopped dead in their tracks and forced to gp a different way.
The Clarian estimates power for the 200 watt unit assumes about 6.5 hours of sunlight per day - for example 200 watts * ,8 (actual panel output as compared to STC) * 6,5 hours * 30 days = 31 kWh This is potentially possible in the summer but the winter? No way
Installation? Do you just lay it on the terrace? Fix it on the roof? Orientaion and inclination need to be correct to achieve the 30 kWh/month.
Enough - this is a sick joke by a company that is trying to get into the pockets of the gullible.
