I also am experiencing long delays in BBE getting stock. In January, I
was told there was a 8 to 12 week wait for inverters. It's now coming up
on 16 weeks. Although the contract states it will be installed within 6
months of a deposit being taken, which will be june 7th, I'm not
confident it will actually happen. Then there's the added difficulty of
getting ACTEWAGL to connect the system to the grid, which I gather can
take another 6 weeks, and a few hundred dollars to upgrade meter boxes
BBE I must say were far better organised, helpful and communicative than
Modern Solar who I was originally going through.
All the more reason to get my wind turbine project going :)
