We have found most of our customers considered the following points important when choosing a solar system for their family home:
We are committed to our customers being well informed about their solar system purchase and it shows in their testimonials.
Electricity usage which translates to electricity bills, can vary greatly. Some homes use modest amounts of electricity where others use enormous amounts. Factors such as the number of people living in the house, energy efficiency of house design, type & quantity of appliances, swimming pools, water pumps, etc all make a difference to the end result.
Most Victorian homes now have a SmartMeter installed which enables access to specific electricity usage data. This combined with your electricity bill is valuable information when sizing a system to suit your individual needs or lifestyle.
The most common solar system is Grid Connect where the solar system installed on your home is connected to the main electricity grid via the inverter and electricity meter.
Some homes have Off Grid solar powered systems, with no connection to the main electricity grid. This could be by choice or due to remote location. These solar systems charge a large battery bank which in turn power the home. An Off Grid system is more expensive due to the battery cost, and there can be some supply limitations, but there is no further electricity costs from the Grid. Our installer has Off Grid Accreditation to install these specialised systems. See Off Grid systems…..
Battery Storage is becoming a popular choice for both new solar installations and for existing solar system owners coming off high feed in tariffs wanting to optimise their excess solar power. Solar panels supply power to the house with any excess charging the batteries during daylight hours, switching the house to its own stored battery power during peak usage/tariff times at night.
