Why do I need a battery?
As we know the sun doesn't shine 24hrs a day, so any excess electricity is fed back into the grid. Unfortunately, Electricity companies don't want much electricity during the day, so unless you have a government rebate, you get paid very little. A much better option is to store this power in a battery. This power can then be utilised once the sun goes down at night.
What brand battery?
There are a huge range of batteries available and we can install any brand that you want or we can help you pick the best for your needs. LG & Tesla batteries are the market leaders and both produce quality batteries. Value for money we would recommend the LG battery.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I still need to be connected to the Grid?
Generally yes. Once a Solar Power System is installed a household will retain it's connection to the grid. The power from the grid can be used to supplement the solar system if the solar system can't keep up with the peak demand. Also, any excess power generated is fed back into the grid.
Are Government Rebates still available?
Yes. Although the rebates are not a much as when they first came out, the cost of a solar system has reduced significantly therefore still making it an affordable solution. The rebate varies a lot and is constantly changing so get in contact with us to see what's available for you.
How much money will I save on my electricity bill?
This question is very specific to each household. It depends on how much electricity is consumed, what time of the day it's used, the size and location of the solar panels and if a battery is used or not. We are happy to have a look at your electricity bill and give you an estimation for how much you could potentially save. From this, you can work out the payback period.
What Size Solar System do I need?
Once again this depends on the individual household. Give us a call and we'll suggest a size for your individual circumstances.
How Solar Power Systems Works?
- Solar energy is collected from the sun during the day. The solar panels convert the light photons into electricity.
- The electricity generated is low voltage DC and needs to be converted into 240v AC like the rest of the household. This is the job of the inverter, taking the low voltage DC current and converting it into 240v AC.
- As we know the sun does not shine all day long and some days are very cloudy. For best result, a battery is used to store any excess power for use later when the sun is not shining.
