    Default Anyone convert to solar hot water?

    And notice much of difference?
    Eta - as far as the price of your electricity bill goes?

    We went from a EHWS to a SP HWS with gas instaneous backup

    Our electricity usage went down, our gas went up slightly, but my electricity bill has gone up with the latest price hikes.

    I dread what the EB would have been without the swap over

    Cant say really without digging out all the old bills again- we did it in the middle of renovations and extensions, plus as MOTH is a plumber and I work for a sparky we didn't pay installation costs.
