Notes:

Total Annual benfit refers to: bill savings plus generation and export tariff payments, per annum

EvoEnergy assume that an average household will use 50% of the energy generated, and export 50% back to the grid

EvoEnergy assume that a typical system would be situated in a due south position, with an elevation of 35 degrees
