What solar system is right for you?

When it comes to solar energy systems; that is a very good question. When you look at all the different promotions in the media; it is very confusing.

When we go out to buy a house or car, we have a pretty good idea of what we want and the quality of manufacturer behind it. However, when it comes to a solar energy system we are in the dark a bit.

Here are a few guidelines to help.

The CEC (Clear Energy Council) are the authority behind the solar industry. Installers must be accredited by the CEC, and they have strict guidelines as to what products meet our Australian standards.

Each year the CEC release a report which shows their Top 5 Inverters and Top 5 Solar Panels; along with honourable mentions. So that is a great place to start.

Now you have a good idea of worthy products with solid warranties. Again, like buying a car; you know what you want, but who do you trust with your business. When you think about it; that is the key to all purchases isn’t? If I buy a quality TV and it develops a fault; who will replace it hassle-free?

The solar industry is no different. The integrity of the company that you do business with is everything.  Will they be there in the future if I need them? Are they trustworthy? How long have they been operating? All key points.

Don’t be taken in by the cheap advertised prices. These are “Foot in the door” tactics. You cannot provide an accurate quote without doing a proper site inspection.

Buy on value not on cost. Solar is a long – term proposition., and a quality system should pay for itself within 3 to 3.5 years.

One in three homeowners in Queensland operate on solar energy.  It works and saves you money!

How does Solar Energy work?

Solar Energy is such an exciting industry to be involved in! Technology has seen solar panels and inverters advance incredibly over the last 8 to 10 years. To the point where manufacturers are creating new technologies just to get an extra 1% performance from their panels.

The world has embraced Solar Energy. Advanced systems today are up to half the price that they were 10 years ago. Higher performance, more durable, but far more affordable. State Government Rebates still apply and are a great incentive for homeowners and businesses alike.

It is commonly believed that solar energy is generated from heat; the hotter the climate, the more energy is produced. If that was the case, our European counterparts would be at a great disadvantage. Sunlight is the answer.

Solar-powered photovoltaic (PV) panels convert the sun’s rays into electricity by vibrating electrons in silicon cells using the photons of light from the sun. This electricity can then be used to supply renewable energy to your home or business.

The renewable energy is harnessed and passed through an Inverter, which converts the DC energy into AC –the electricity used to power your home. In addition, the inverter processes the AC electricity through the grid, notifying your energy supplier that you do not require their electricity because you have your own. If your system is generating excess electricity in the sunlight hours, your energy supplier will purchase that from you; thereby off – setting your evening usage.

At All Energy HQ, we gauge your electricity usage during our site inspection. This enables us to recommend the size of solar system for your individual needs.
