You can see the solar electric PV array on the LHS and 4x solar hotwater panels on the RHS. In 5 yrs time we will extend out the orange roof section to the road...
Photo: Close up of stage 1 finished... 200m2 added and we are broke... save up more money...
Photo: East side of the house... the sun pours in the windows here to start warming up the house in the morning... and then swings around to the front to give warm and sunlight all day long...
i.e. take the time to pick the right property!
