What is a Grid Connect Solar Power System?

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.

What is a Standalone Solar Power System

Typical Standalone Solar Power Systems consist of 4 Main Components

  • 1 Solar Panels which generate DC Electricity that will be fed to the…
  • 2 Solar Regulator which will control the amount of charge going to the…
  • 3 Deep Cycle Batteries which will store the electricity until it gets to the…
  • 4 Inverter/Charger which converts the DC Electricity into 240V/50Hz AC Electricity (Suitable for running your standard home appliances)

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.

What is a Feed-In Tariff?

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.

How much does a Solar Power System Cost?

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.

What Effects the Output of a Solar Power System?

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.
