Why Go Solar

The costs of living and the constant increases in electricity are making people look for alternatives to save money. Solar has never been so affordable.  Due to the economies of scale and the vast acceptance worldwide of domestic solar systems, a system will pay itself off in 5 or 6 years and be producing for 30 years. If your electricity bills are higher than you think they should be, a solar system is one way to guarantee lower costs of living for the future.  Solar power is an investment that is also helping to reduce our environmental impact on society by providing clean renewable energy, and your household will not be contributing to the pollution and high fossil fuel usage of our power stations.

How does the Solar System Work?

When the sun is shining, the solar cells generate electricity. The amount varies throughout the day depending on its orientation to the panels. The inverter converts the DC electricity produced by the solar panels into 240V AC electricity, which can then be used by the property/household.

If a grid connect system is producing more power than is being consumed, the surplus is fed into the mains power grid. Electricity companies will meter the electricity fed into the grid by your system and provide a credit on your bill.

Can I see what the system is doing?

Yes, our inverters have a digital read out that tells you instantaneous and daily production.

Where does the inverter go?

The Inverter will operate better mounted out of the weather and sunlight, and with plenty of airflow around it. Typical locations are on a wall under a porch, under an eve or on a garage wall.

What affects production from the panels?

Your solar panels can work from early in the morning to early evening. They produce more power as the sun reaches a more direct angle to the panels.  The smaller systems will auto shutdown on rainy days. Days with full cloud cover lower production, however the inverters are very good at deriving what they can from even patchy conditions. We custom engineer your voltages to optimise power for your site.

What happens when I produce more than I use?

This is called an export amount. Any excess that you can export to the grid is credited to you. If you are in credit for some time you are entitled to receive that amount from your power provider.  Many system owners use the export amount to pay for their gas, rates water bills and other regular accounts, therefore using the solar system to help create a financially neutral home.
