Why Install Solar?
We’re pretty sure that solar is right for you! Don’t just take our word for it though, explore the options below to find out more.
Control Energy Costs
Lock in a low rate of power. Installing a Solar PV System means you can enjoy a predictable energy bill, so you can plan and save for your future. The moment your solar is turned on, you secure your energy stability and lower energy rates for your family for years to come.
Lower Electricity Bills
Pay Less for Clean Energy. Solar means immediate savings, it’s as simple as that. Solar energy is actually cheaper than traditional power in many markets across the country. You pay nothing upfront, you start saving on day one, following installation, and those savings typically increase over time.
Help The Environment
Make the World a Better Place. No dirty fossil fuels, no smokestacks, no harm to precious natural resources. Solar energy is about as clean as it gets. Making electricity from your roof involves hardly any pollution, so you can breathe easier and help stop climate change. Also, unlike other power plants, Solar power doesn’t use any water at all. In fact, the average solar system, saves approximately 5.7 tonnes of Carbon Dioxide gas per year. This makes Solar a great way to improve your carbon footprint!
How Does Solar Work?
Rise and Shine!
Your solar system uses UV light to generate electricity. This electricity is used throughout your property to power electrical appliances. Although your system produces power from sunrise, you need to allow time for the system to generate enough to cover the usage of your house. For best results, try to avoid using large energy using appliances early in the morning to prevent you buying power the residual power from the grid.
During the middle of the day, your system should reach its maximum production. This is a great time of the day to use those nasty appliances that are usually expensive to run. Some appliances that you could use are: hot water systems, pool pumps, bore pumps and air-conditioners. During the times you are producing more power than you can use, the power is simply fed back into the electricity grid. Under the current feed in rates, its always more beneficial however, to use the power yourself for a much better return on investment.
After the sun goes down, your house will start purchasing power from the grid, to run your house throughout the night. This is a good time to have any of those large appliances turned off. Any appliances that you need to use through the night, like bedroom air-conditioners, it's best to change them over to a cheaper tariff to ensure that you pay lower rates for the power that they consume. Alternatively, if you are feeding lots of power into the grid throughout the day, you can opt to install batteries to make this power available once the sun goes down. Once your batteries are depleted though, you will simply revert to buying your power from the energy grid until the sun rises in the morning and commences charging your batteries again.
