Thanks Kefalas,for the tips etc, Its-It's, oversight, usually spot these things as I'm(I am) a keen apostrophe spotter!

Interesting that you mention Bedini in your "blog". I've been following his work. Some friends here are working on a Tesla design generator.

I watched that you-tube video last week, as it happens.

(BTW, Ian, in your "blog" you are typing it's (it is) instead of its.)

Reference naxosbe's interest in solar panels, if you want further info on 'green energy' you may be interested in my blog which I've introduced recently:
http://solar-panels-crete.blogspot.com

You will see many items referring to free energy'-it is no longer a myth. Also you must see' here comes the sun', it is an eye opener of a video documentary-this is the link:

Enjoy!

Thanks,
actually I will live in the house the whole year. And I can get the installation from a neighbor, for a very reasonable price.

The question you have to answer is will the cost of solar panel and battery installation be repaid over the time you live in the house?

To generate 10kw of energy you will need something like 40 panels on your house. By using batteries you can reduce the number of panels but you will have the cost of expensive batteries which have a finite life i.e. they will have to be replaced from time to time.

The best way to reduce your costs is to procure a licence to place panels on your roof and then sell the electricity generated back to the Grid. Unfortunately, the subsidy to do this has dropped from 0.55 per unit last year to something like 0.25 per unit this year.

It's a difficult decision although the cost of panels has been dropping over the last few years so the set up costs today might make solar panels a viable option but - and its a big but - will you break even in the time frame you intend to live in the house?

Does it pay back to install solar panels ?

Hi all, I have something to ask here. First let me tell you I am not living on Crete, but on Naxos. Although I have been to Crete many times already. I know, you can not compare both Islands, and I will not start the discussion here who lives in the best place.. Cheesy
I have a house facing the sun whole day almost, and I was wondering if installing solar panels would make it possible to live without any power from the city the whole day, at least in summer ? I saw many solar panels installed on the main land, but on Naxos island it is not that popular yet. Does anybody here has experience with this already ? If so, how much Watt are you producing ? And did you got them at Crete or were they shipped ? I would bring them from my home county, and install them myself. I would also use battery's, not pumping electricity back in the network. So any tips, answers or whatever are welcome here ! Yassas !
