Our Residential Solutions

What size system do you need?

When going solar, it’s likely you’ll want to run your home on as little energy from the grid as possible to optimise your energy savings and minimise the payback period. We aim to develop long-term partnerships with our clients, supporting their growth by consistently delivering quality projects.

The number of solar panels you’ll need is directly related to both your current energy usage and your energy goals. There are two key aspects to consider when evaluating which size system is suitable for your home:

How much electricity do you use?

Different households can vary greatly in electricity consumption. A family of five in a large home will likely use much more electricity than a couple in a small townhouse.

For example:

  • A average home with two adults and two kids, with many appliances in use, might consume anywhere between 30 and 50 kWh a day.
  • A single adult in an apartment could consume as little as 10kWh a day.
  • An adult couple with no kids could consume around 15 to 30 kWh a day.

When do you most often use electricity?

Whether you use electricity during the day or night may influence the size of the solar power system you need, and whether adding a battery also makes sense.

For example:

  • If you mostly use electricity during the morning, it would be best to place your solar panels on an east-facing roof location.
  • If you use energy most often during the afternoon or night, place your solar panels on a west-facing roof, or add a battery into your energy system to use solar energy when the sun isn’t shining.
  • If you produce more energy than you use, you can sell that excess energy back to the grid. This is called a feed-in tariff. With a battery, you’ll be able to save even more by storing the energy your system produces and using it later, rather than selling it back to the grid.

ON-Grid Benefits

  • On-grid solar systems are very cost-effective and easy to install.
  • Businesses can recoup the cost of their investment by offsetting electricity bills in just 3-8 years. If a private, commercial or industrial building sets up a solar PV rooftop system it will be eligible to avail an ‘Accelerated Depreciation Benefit’ which is currently 80% in a year. At this rate, a business can completely depreciate the whole value of the project in approximately 4 years.
  • Residential users and business owners can earn a passive income for the surplus energy generated by the system.

ON-Grid Solar

We are experts at providing complete solutions for your on-grid solar setup.On grid solar power systems are the most commonly used systems for households. Using the same basic principles of harnessing solar power, solar panels will convert solar energy into DC power, which is then converted to AC power by a solar inverter. The solar electricity that is not consumed by the household is exported back to the electricity grid if the system is providing more energy than the house needs. The consumer gets paid credits or a feed-in-tariff (FiT) for the excess energy exported. There is no solar battery storage in the case of on grid solar power systems.

OFF-Grid Benefits

  • These self-sustainable systems can work independently and do not rely on the grid.
  • They generate enough power that can be stored and used at night or when the power grid is down.
  • These are ideal for remote areas where there is no power access from the grid.
  • Grid failures and shutdowns will not affect your power supply.

OFF-Grid Solar

Expert designed solar for where there is no gird-power connection.
Off-grid solar power systems are ideal for those living in remote areas, who are unable to connect to the public power grid. They also suit those who wish to remain off the grid in order to be in complete control of their spend on electricity usage. An off-grid solar power system offers a variety of benefits, including independence, sustainability and perhaps what’s most important cost savings. Going off the grid means 100% of your power is derived from solar energy, which is collected and stored by means of solar battery storage, and other back-up resources.

Hybrid Solar Benefits

  • Solar panel will run you connected load.
  • Meanwhile extra electricity will be stored to the solar battery.
  • Surplus electricity will be fed back to the electricity grid by hybrid solar inverter.

Hybrid Solar

Having a hybrid system means that your solar panels, solar inverter and battery system are interfacing with the utility grid. The future of electricity generation in Australia lies in producing your own solar energy during the day and storing it in a battery bank to be used at night. This will eliminate the need to draw much, if any electricity, from the grid. Hybrids systems can include backup systems, which continue to function when the grid is down, as well as systems that will not work when the grid is down. Having a backup system during power outages is a great benefit, but it is a luxury and will cost you about 30% more.
