Why should I get solar panels?

Installing a solar power system on your roof helps you save hefty amounts on your energy bills and guards you against the future’s rising power rates. Depending on your area’s utility rates and the govt. policies you will save on your bills but switching to solar is certainly a smart investment choice irrespective of your location. Furthermore, solar energy is a renewable energy source that has many environmental benefits, like reducing the carbon footprint.

The best way to find that out is to utilize our energy savings calculator , which will give you the estimated savings on your bills.

As per studies, the properties with solar panel systems are sold at a higher price than those without them.

How do solar panels work?

The panels on your roof absorb the sun’s energy during the day and convert it into Direct current. The direct current goes into the inverter gets converted into Alternate current to power your residence/business.

Electricity is generated by Solar panels from photons present in typical daylight, instead of sunlight itself, so the panels do not necessarily have to be dependent on the direct sunlight to operate. Heat is not the deciding factor on the amount of electricity generated by the panels since they can produce the right amount of electricity on a cloudy day as productive as a sunny day, if not as much as a hot summer day. A sunnier day would undoubtedly provide maximum benefits for the solar system, but you will still be able to benefit from the electricity generated by the solar system even if the weather conditions are not perfect.

Even after installing solar panels on your roof, you will still be connected to the grid, which will allow you to draw power from the grid during the night time, and send the unused power back to the grid.

However, it is possible to go off the grid by including battery storage in the solar panel system, but it will not be very cost-effective comparatively and unnecessary for most homeowners.

Unless your solar power system includes a battery storage system and you are entirely off the grid, you will still get an electricity bill. However, your bills can dramatically reduce.

Your solar panel system will shut off in the event of a blackout if connected to the grid to prevent emergency responders and electricity utility repair workers from being harmed by your panels, transmitting power back to the grid.

Solar panel systems are manufactured from long-lasting tempered glass and need little to no maintenance for almost 25 – 35 years. If something happens, most of the equipment companies cover warranties, although the warranty terms depend on the company.

There are a few parameters which should be used by everyone when selecting a solar installer. Confirm they are accredited, licensed and insured, have relevant experience and can provide references. All installers should be C.E.C. certified and are pre-screened to ensure they meet the high-quality requirements set as per the Australian standards.
