A Grid connect solar power system supplies solar electricity through an inverter directly to the household (no batteries) and from there into the electricity grid – if the system is providing more energy than the house requires. As the inverter is connected to the grid, the solar power system is known as a grid-connect solar power system.
Typical Standalone Solar Power Systems consist of 4 Main Components
Any electricity not used by your home will remain in the Batteries and once the sun comes up the next day the solar panels will recharge your batteries again.
The whole process will continue to repeat itself keeping your batteries full of charge and your hard earned cash in your back pocket.
A Feed-In Tariff (FiT) is the rate which you get paid for any excess energy exported to the grid. In Qld the Feed-In Tariff is between 8-16c/kWh.
The price for a solar power system varies depending on state and your house. For these reasons we recommend speaking with one of qualified solar consultants today.
The strength of the solar energy (radiation) available depends on the time of year, the time of day, and the latitude of the generation point. The amount of energy generated can be further affected by the amount of dust and water vapour in the air, the amount of cloud cover and any shading of the solar panels. Other factors that affect the performance include the inverter efficiency and wiring losses.? Our solar consultants will be able to explain all of this to you during your free home energy assesments.
