Blue Mountains Home


A retired electrician upgraded his rental property in the Blue Mountains of NSW by installing a 5 kW solar system (including DC optimizers) at a cost of $7,540.

The tenant has since been paying $15/week in additional rent, which is providing a return of 11.8% IRR to the owners over the 25 year life of the solar system (after SunTenants monitoring fees, assuming modest inflation in future electricity prices). The simplified Return on Investment is 9.1%.

The live measurements from the property shows the following:
