    Default monocrystaline vs polycrystaline and REC's

    I have had 2 quotes on a 4Kw system one with poly panels and one with mono panels ($1500 dearer) the poly salesman tells me poly are actually better today than they were in the past and more efficient (i think was the statement) on hotter days is this a fair statement?

    Also anyone heard if the govt is scrapping REC's in the latest budget?
    cheers Look out if I have a tape measure in my hand.....I'm upto something

    I just rang the REC clean energy regulator and there was no change in the budget on REC's but there is a review going on and published in end of June.

    For a normal domestic on-grid situation there is very little difference in the "real world" performance of poly versus mono. That is, a same size system using either type of panels will produce roughly the same output over 12 months.

    I wouldn't pay $1500 extra for one or the other as there just isn't much to be gained really.
