Why Solar?

Why has 15% of Australia converted to Solar?


Over the past 7 years, 1.5 million solar systems have been installed across the country which is just over 15% of Australian homes and businesses.


Savings on your Power Bill.

When installing Solar power you are supplying your own electricity through the day rather than buying it from the grid. In some cases you may not use the electricity you generate. Not to worry, this electricity is sold back to your retailer at rates up to 20c in NSW. This can create huge reductions in bills and in some cases see you never pay a
bill again.

Solar systems create STC’s (Small scale technology certificates). These certificates are purchased and used to heavily subsidize the overall cost of installing your system. The amount of subsidy is determined by the size of your system and the date that you purchase your solar.

Good for the Environment.

Solar not only helps you save money but it benefits the environment as well. Traditional energy sources like fossil fuels provide harmful carbon dioxide and methane emissions which are leading contributors to global warming and poor air quality.

Solar reduces water pollution. Without the need of water to generate electricity, local water supplies are not polluted or wasted on cooling massive gas and coal fire facilities. Solar reduces the need for finite resources.
As long as the sun is here, solar generated electricity is here to stay.

What makes up a system?


Panel Selection.

Solar panels generally go on the roof and simply collect sunlight to be converted into electricity. MonoCrystalline and Poly Crystalline arethe leading forms of technology in our market space.
When comparing panels of thesame rated power output, thereis currently no practicable difference in the performance of these two technologies.

Inverters.

The main component of a solar system is the inverter. You can choose either string or microinverters. String systems are more common. 

Micro inverters are used normally for more efficient output especially when areas of your roof may have shading.

Design Layout.

The most important part of the installation is the quality of installation, mounting and electrical.

With our in-house design and installation team, you can be confident knowing that we install with the highest quality every time.

Technology

How does it actually work?


System production is dependent on the size of your system. The more panels installed = more power produced. For grid connect systems, your highest saving is calculated by solar off-setting what your energy consumption is during the day.

This is normally at a rate of around 28c per kwh. Any excess electricity produced from your solar system is credited back to you by your retailer. In NSW the credit can be up to as much as 20c per kwh generated.
Panels are generally installed on the North facing aspect of the roof with West/East as second options. Most pitched roofs are already angled for optimum efficiency. If your roof is flat, it may require a tilt frame to bring the panel closer to an optimum angle.

Panels may be installed on any roof type but will require different mounting and sometimes custom work to suit the premise. Tile, Color bond and Kliplock are most common.
