Pros: affordable, reliable, well designed and built, quiet
Cons: will not get you off grid. Concrete, pole, and wiring add up quickly
We installled Sparky in January and love the job he is doing. Southwest makes good equipment and their dealers seem to be easy to work with on the installs. We are even considering buying a second. Watch out for the price of the pole, anchors, concrete, and wiring - that will add another $5k to your investment. HINT: Forego the handheld meter from Southwest and buy a wall mounted meter from an electric supply store instead.
