What is Solar Power?
Solar panels are an extremely cost effective way to convert the abundant energy given to us by the sun into electricity; that can be used around the home. Studies have shown that solar electricity is the energy source Australians prefer, which makes sense as Australia has a rich source of solar radiation in the world.
Rooftop solar panels are made up of photovoltaic cells (PV). Photovoltaic actually translates to "light electric". PV panels are installed to capture the radiation from the sun and convert it into electricity. When the sunlight hits the PV cells, it activates the photons, which causes them to flow and generate electricity.
Electricity generated from the panels is called DC (Direct Current), which is not compatible with common household devices. An inverter is installed to “invert” the DC output into AC (Alternating Current) for household application.
Any surplus electricity generated is fed back into the grid. Advances are being made in battery storage technology to increase the efficiency and cost effectiveness of solar powered systems. However remaining connected to the grid, means households can access traditional electricity when necessary.
Solar power is the cleanest, most viable form of renewable energy. Not only will you save through the solar contribution on your energy bills, you will be reducing carbon emissions in the process.
Once installed, there is next to no effort required from you to enjoy the savings returned from your solar system. Our recommendation is to service your solar system every two years, so you can ensure peace of mind that your system is producing the right amount of power.
We provide a 25-year solar panel performance warranty. As a long term investment, solar panels provide fantastic returns for you to enjoy a lifetime of value. With solar panels, they can add an estimated $10,000 to the resale value of your home.
