Frequently Asked Questions
Q.1 What are the benefits of going solar?
Ans : Australia is known for its vibrant and dynamic climate. A newly installed solar system produces free electricity for 25+ years. Solar systems give you the ability to save money by creating a natural source of energy that can power your home and business. Moreover, solar panels are long lasting and require little maintenance.
Our vision is to make solar systems affordable for every Australian by providing prices which suit their pockets. A well-designed solar system installation has a typical payback period of around 3-4 years in Australia post which the monetary benefits continue till 25 years and more.
Q.2 Where do the panels get installed and which is the best direction for optimal placement?
Ans : The most recommended direction to install a solar system is the north side. However, if we are unable to install the panels on the desired side of your roof, we can still install it on your shed, veranda or any other side of your property after careful inspection.
Q.3 How do solar systems produce electricity?
Ans : Solar panels are made up of a group of cells (generally silicon) which are usually encased in a metallic frame and tempered glass. When subject to sunlight, these photovoltaic cells help in creating a flow of electric charge inside the solar panel. The solar panels feed into a device (known as an inverter system) that converts direct current (DC) electricity to alternating current (AC) to match the frequency of the utility grid so that it can be used to power your home or business.
Q.4 Does a solar system cover the entire electricity cost?
Ans : It entirely depends on the total usage. The takeaway is how smartly you use the electricity produced by the installed solar system. Our solar experts and CEC accredited installer will be designing a solar system which will be a customized solution according to your usage and will subsequently allow you to save up to 80% on your electricity bills.
Q.5 Does a solar system work at night?
Ans : Solar system works during the daytime only. The solar energy produced can be used during the daytime to power your home and the surplus energy gets exported to the grid. Your electricity retailer will pay you an amount for each kWh that your system exports to the grid as a credit to your electricity bill.
For storing the generated solar energy, you will require batteries. We request you to contact us in case you want to know more about the available Battery Solutions.
Q.6 Does a solar system work during cloudy weather?
Ans : On a cloudy day, the performance of the solar system reduces to approximately half of what it produces on a sunny day. If your usage on that day is more than what is being produced by the installed solar system, then the balance power is directly taken from the grid.
Q.7 What is the warranty of the solar system?
Ans : We provide a warranty of 25 years on the solar panels and a warranty of 10 years on the inverter. We also exclusively provide a 10-year installation and workmanship warranty.
