Regarding duty on solar equipment, specifically inverters; response to larry smith..the duty I was charged for the inverters was 45%. This determination came directly from Charles Turner, who as you know is the head of Customs, not a "misinformed officer." I have written to Min of Environment, PM, & others and none have responded. This would clearly signal a change in the government's policy toward encouraging solar equipment. Previously Mr. Turner had always informed the local Customs office that inverters were to be treated as duty free.

looking at converting electrical water heater for solar
What are your thoughts on DC elements?
Is this a real possible option?
