Reasons to go Solar Powered
  • 1

    If you own your own home, you can and should control your own energy. Solar panels and battery systems (can) free you from relying on the grid, so you don’t have to depend on state power stations unless you want to.

  • 2

    With payback periods normally under 5 years then 20 years of free power from the sun, not counting the rebates and subsidies, the Federal government provides for solar panels and power storage units!

  • 3

    The return on a solar PV installation is much better than the equivalent money invested in stock market shares or any high interest savings account. A well designed system will see a ROI of over 20% - which positively affects the price of your property in addition to saving you money.

  • 4

    With solar energy, you’re cutting carbon emissions from coal-fueled power generation plants that pollute the Great Barrier Reef, Queensland’s famous beaches and Australia’s natural parks and reservations.

  • 5

    Join over 4 million Australians - almost 15% of the population - who save money and fight pollution by living in solar-powered homes.

  • 6

    Use natural, solar energy as an alternative fuel source instead of relying on fossil fuels like oil and gas - both of which can be expensive in Australia.

  • 7

    Take advantage of the STC rebate which may soon be removed, increasing the price of installation by as much as $4,000 AUD.

  • 8

    Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re doing your part to preserve our planet.

3 Fantastic Options to Cut Your Power Bills - Great Solar Power Options in the Noosa Sunshine Coast area of Queensland.

Grid-Connected Solar Power

This is the most common, easy-to-use system for the average household. Your panels collect energy from the sun during the day.

The inverter then converts that power to electricity which you can use throughout the day, selling the excess to the grid. This is a smart alternative for those who aren’t ready to install a battery system, because you can sell unused electricity to the grid and buy the power you need from the grid as necessary.

Grid-connected solar power, step by step:

    Panels collect energy from the sun.

  • 2

    The Inverter converts solar power to regular electricity.

  • 3

    The meter measures how much electricity you buy and sell.

  • 4

    You only pay for the excess you use - which often means free electricity, or getting a small profit on your utility bills.

2
Hybrid Solar Power

A hybrid solar system is still a grid-connected system. The difference is that it has an extra battery and battery charger. The battery allows you to store some of your solar power so you can use it at night.

This is more efficient and cost-effective than buying and selling electricity frequently – while still allowing you to slice your power bills to a fraction of what they currently are.

  • 2

    The inverter converts solar power to house power and charges your battery or batteries.

  • 3

    The meter measures how much electricity you buy and sell.

  • 4

    When necessary, you sell excess electricity to the grid - or make up a deficit by buying from it.

  • 5

    Batteries store solar power so it can be used at night.

Off grid solar power.

Going off-grid means investing in a standalone system that doesn’t rely on power lines at all. A system like this will often have extra panels and a backup generator to make sure you are never without power.

A well designed system will hardly ever use the generator as all the power will come from the panels and batteries. This is a perfect option for those who are far from the state’s power infrastructure, or want to remain off the grid for other reasons.

The major difference with a Hybrid solar power system is the battery size, which tends to be much bigger – and the addition of a back-up generator for when the sun doesn’t generate enough power.

  • 2

    The invereter converts solar power to house power and also charges batteries.

  • 3

    Batteries store solar power so it can be used at night.

  • 4

    Generators can be used if the system needs extra power due to bad weather or equipment malfunction, so you are never without electricity.
