    I think if governments / municipalities were to stop using "energy" as a taxation scapegoat things would be a whole lot better. Energy is expensive in part because it is easy to tax (and in this country tax=stolen)

    I wonder what proportion of money charged for electricity is actually supposed to go to ESKOM. Could it be that the municipalities take this money and don't pay it over?

    It seems Kodak are just rebranding Goodwe ... axpert and any other product ... using the name to generate sales.
    Comments are based on opinion...not always facts....that's why people use an alias.

    What I always find amazing is how things are done in other countries.

    I found a few videos showing how individuals open a battery rip it apart and refurbish it with tools that is not that hard to get. The competitions however on the paste is not that clear.
    Anyone with a Good CNC can reproduce almost all of the tools they have here and that is the scary part. Essentially most of us here have "big tools" and we can do a lot with them and here are individuals with hand tools fixing batteries that can be used again and again.



    Then i watched this and it is a lot more technical...
