How much money I can save?

Solar Power systems definitely save you money. The real question is, how much exactly? Well, that figure is based on a number of factors mentioned below.

  • Your average energy consumption
  • Usage patterns
  • Your feed-in tariff rate
  • The size of the solar power system you install
  • Where you live
How good is solar for the environment?

Solar energy creates clean, renewable power from the sun and benefits the environment. Alternatives to fossil fuels reduce carbon footprint at home and abroad, reducing greenhouse gases around the globe. Solar is known to have a favourable impact on the environment.

Most of the electricity generated these days comes from fossil fuels like coal and natural gas. Extracting and using fossil fuels is expensive and harmful to the environment. By contrast, solar energy is free and readily abundant – if we could capture all of the sun’s energy shining on the Earth for just one hour, we could power the entire world for one year!

By investing in solar energy, you can help reduce our reliance on fossil fuels in favour of one of the most abundant, consistent sources of energy we have available: our sun.

The table below demonstrates what a 3kW system will save on average per annum. The two values indicate the average savings based on 5% and 25% export of electricity.

How do I maintain my system?

Maintenance is the key to sustaining a strong, properly functioning, efficient, and effective structure.

With the purchase of solar panels, consumers are in luck. Fortunately, solar panels require pretty low maintenance. Unlike generators which are composed of moving components which require repair or replacement, solar panels do not have moving parts that can rust or breakdown.

So, what exactly do I need to do?

Cleaning is an important key aspect of solar panel maintenance. The dustier your area, the more frequent inspection is recommended. This ensures that dirt, grime, bird droppings and debris do not block the sun from efficient absorption by the panels.

There are a few ways you can clean your panels. The first (and easiest) way is to rinse of dust with a standard garden hose. If the panels seem to need a little more cleaning than the hose offers, a soft, spongy squeegee on a long pole (like the ones used to wash tall windows) can be used, along with some soapy water. Then use the hose to rinse off any excess suds.

If the panels are too high to reach without climbing up a ladder, it may be best to leave the cleaning for the professionals. Local solar panel cleaners are in abundance and a quick search online can yield a whole list of companies to choose from.

We generally don’t like rainy days since cloudy days mean less power production, but consider it a blessing if there’s a few days of it. Free cleaning? I’ll take it!

As owners, the goal is always to get the best bang for your buck, so make sure your panels are performing at maximum capacity and save energy whenever possible.

How long will it take to pay off?

Payback times will differ with each household and you should investigate with your own inputs or speak with your solar consultant.

Payback times will vary depending upon:

  • available sunlight hours – this influences productivity of the system and the amount of rebates
  • electricity prices combined with FiTs
  • the cost and quality of the system
  • how much solar power is self-consumed (the more the better) except in Northern Territory (NT), as NT Provided 1:1 FITs, so it does not really matter if you are self-consuming or exporting back to the grid.
  • positioning of the panels and issues with the site. 
How many solar panels do I need?

To size your solar panel system we need to work out how much electricity you use and when you use it.

Contact us today and we will arrange a free site assessment by one of our solar consultants who will be more than happy to come and discuss face to face.
