The study presents a life-time cost analysis for a combined solar system comprising a 1kW-peak grid-connected photovoltaic unit and an evacuated-tube solar water heater, 1.37 m2 collector area and a 120 Liter storage tank operated at Toowoomba Queensland. The work represents technical and economic assessment of the technology at local conditions. Present solar kWh price indicate the ability of the system to provide competitive prices to cover demand peaks in Queensland. Additionally, the solar system – being located on site – offers the advantage of avoiding transmission and distribution losses throughout the electrical network.
