It's generally accepted that solar installations in New Zealand achieve carbon neutrality between years 3 and 4 of operation. (depending on the specifics of your system). Using the average New Zealand grid emissions of 110g/kWh, a 100kWh system in Christchurch that becomes carbon neutral in four years, will end up saving over 100 tonnes of CO2 equivalent GHG by the end of the first decade.
