Delamping vs. Other Investments to Reduce Carbon Emissions
- A 1.5 kW grid-connect solar photo-voltaic array on your home, after the government rebate of $8,000 (otherwise it would cost around $18,000).
- Two large domestic solar hot water systems installed on two homes.
- Around 550 Mirrorlux Reflectors, for installation in your office, school, shop, hospital, and more.
Out of those three choices, which one provides the greatest greenhouse savings, and what is the annual return on investment that each of these investment provides? The table below illustrates the savings for each.

|A 1.5 kW solar photo-voltaic array on your home, AFTER the government rebate of $8,000||$372||2.9|
|Two large domestic solar hot water systems installed in two homes, replacing electric hot water systems||$941||7.3|
|Around 550 Mirrorlux Reflectors, for office, school, shop, hospital, etc installation||$9,583||74.7|
