    I don't know.
    DPX Solar Installations, they are called, the write up on their Web Site is written by Gord, At the tail end of last year they were offering a system for P320 all inclusive and I seem to think that was 7.6KW?

    It will be 7 years at the end of this year that I fitted a 4kw to my house in Scotland, it is grid tied and I get a return of around $750 year, from the electricity supplier, and a saving on electric during daytime this cost $7K to fit, I think by the end of next year it will have paid for itself? so DPX at just over $6K for nearly double the output is a fair price I would say.

    You may have noticed a guy from Valencia in a Red Pickup with Solar Systems on the side of it? (drives a bit aggressive) I only know his name is Jeff he offered me a 7.6 KW system some two years ago, he wanted $10K for that and I later found out he uses the cheaper Polycrystalline Panels and not the Monocrystalline which are more effective and last that bit longer, I would hazard a guess and say the Poly is only 80% as efficient after 20yrs, where the Mono is over 90%

    I have a generator but Sky Cable (TV & wifi) apparently do not so not worth the noise just for a fan. I will use my wife’s Globe 4G - bluetooth/cellular connection for temporary internet.

    They do solar?

    Also, being the previous owner of this website, I highly doubt this website brings them any significant source of income. They likely just break even, more of a marketing/advertising tool for them. Peanuts compared to what their real estate, construction and tourism sectors pull in.
