The study presents a life-time cost-benefit analysis for a solar system comprising a grid-connected photovoltaic unit and a solar water heater 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. The work is addressing advantages of associating solar heaters to photovoltaic systems covering energy demands for most of conventional domestic and industrial users. Case studies for different technologies, different economic conditions and system life times are presented.
