    There's no mention of battery storage so assume there isn't any. Without battery storage, doesn't this mean you'd only be able to use the generated electricity during the day? Not so great if most of your usage is at night.

    I suppose it'd work well if PLN bought(or credited) your excess electricity during the day. Not sure if they do that here yet.

    It's getting slowly, very slowly down to a price that might be interesting but as Denpasar House mentions without the PowerWall from Musk the whole system simply isn't...

    DenpasarHouse outlined the main issue of a solar installation in Indonesia i.e power storage . I will switch to solar the day PLN sets up a system to feed back electricity produced by solar panels back into the main grid as it is done in a number of countries. That would eliminate the need for costly PowerWall or a battery park that requires maintenance and regular replacement. And of course it would also maximize the power production and would give you "credits" when not using the power. Which is the case in so many partially occupied villas. If someone knows about such plans by PLN please share!

    I think the purpose of solar energy for me is to go completely off grid. I, for one, would not trust PLN to do anything as complicated as you envision there friend and would simply be happy if I could cut the wires to their network completely.

    Just a FYI.

    If you've already got a PLN connection to your house, and it's on one of the new Pulsa meters, there's no reason you'd actually need to cut the wires to go off-grid. This is because you don't get charged an access fee, you only get charged for the electricity you use.

    That makes it a pretty handy, no-cost backup in case your home solar system goes offline, or you need to run high wattage power tools. Saves you having to have a backup petrol generator.

    Correct but matey above (O) was concerned about getting paid money back from PLN for the excess power he gave back into the system.

    PLN I don't want shit back. I just want to be able to cut the wires that lead to/from you...
