Solar Panels for your home

Rising electricity charges and a drive to produce green energy are the two main factors due to which homeowners in Australia are increasingly getting rooftop solar for their houses. Solar panel installation on the roof, help in bringing down the electricity bills and also take you towards a more sustainable future.

While you plan towards getting a solar power system for home, the first question that comes to mind is – ‘How much does a solar panel installation cost?’

Well, to calculate solar panel installation cost, firstly you need to understand your power consumption. How much electricity you use and when you use it. It’s pretty simple, you can look at your previous bill or you can get a quote from some nearby solar company. Click here to get a free customised no-obligation quote for your property.

To give you a rough estimate, a typical Aussie home uses 20-25 kWh of energy in a day. To cover the power needs of such a home, roughly a 6.6 kW system is sufficient. Visit our Facebook page to check the best solar deals on solar panels in Sydney.

If you are worried about the roof space to install solar panels, then there are high power panels available. With fewer panels, you can generate the desired power for your home.

Do you also wonder – When would you actually start saving after installing solar?

Solar installation payback time primarily depends upon 2 factors

1. Where you live

2. How much electricity do you use during the day?

If you live in Sydney, a 5kW solar panel system would pay back for itself in roughly 4-5 years.

Solar Incentives

As you know the Australian Government is promoting the renewable sources of power generation and is providing support to all Australian homeowners to get solar installation by providing rebate (Small-scale technology certificates). Depending upon the size of the system and the location of your property, you will get some STCs. STC amount is set by the government (it is variable) and you receive money for STCs created by your PV systems. You can also calculate the STC’s your system would generate using government’s calculator.

You can also make money off your solar PV system through Feed-in Tariff. Click here to know the details.

Do you want a solar system with battery storage?

A battery storage system would help you store the excess electricity generated by your system. The new generation of solar system batteries is more cost-effective and stylish. There is a frequent drop in prices with the development of technology associated with lithium-ion batteries. Check out the details of the best storage batteries available here.

How Does Solar Power Work for Your Home

Solar Panel Installation

The working of a solar power system is pretty simple. Once you decide on getting it installed, solarmatic will take care of everything from installation to maintenance. Setting up of Solar power system would prove to be one of the best decisions of your life. You would get a relief from ever-increasing electricity bills. Though Solarmatic will do the installation job for you still we want you to have a clear understanding of the process hence we will provide the complete guide on how it works.

Solar Panels – What are they and how do they work?

Solar Panels:  Firstly you need to understand the photovoltaic effect. The photovoltaic effect is the creation of voltage and electric current in a material upon exposure to light and is a physical and chemical property/phenomenon. Solar panels are made of photovoltaic cells and hence convert sunlight into the Direct current. This process continues till sun’s radiations are hitting the panels on your roof. But to run home appliances we need Alternating current instead of Direct Current. The inverter does this job of conversion.

Inverter – what is its job?

An Inverter is a very important component of this process. It helps in converting the Direct Current (DC) produced by the solar panels into Alternating Current(AC). Home’s electrical circuit need AC to work because AC is bidirectional and DC is unidirectional.

Electrical Service Panel

Electricity from inverter flows into the electrical service panel and then from here it is directed to your home to light your house and to run other electrical circuits. Solar panels usually produce more electricity and excess power can be stored in the storage battery or it can also be directed to the company’s electricity grid for which you will get the credit.

Net Meter

It keeps track of the amount of electricity fed into the grid and the amount drawn from the grid. You will get paid for the excess power generation by the solar panels. This way you will get to know how much money you have saved with the solar power installation.

 Benefits of Solar panel Installation

1. Utilization of Renewable source of energy: Efficient use of the sun’s energy to generate electricity is helpful in reducing the dependence on fossil fuels which have an adverse effect on the environment. Sunlight is widely available free of cost and it would not deplete upon consumption like coal or gas. Solar power produces clean energy.

2. Reduction and elimination of electricity bill: Solar panels make the home self-sufficient in generating enough power to meet the domestic needs. Moreover, on hot summer days, it generates excess power which can be stored or can be fed back to the electrical grid in exchange for money. The net meter helps in keeping the track of the amount of electricity sent back to the grid. This can add to your earning by saving thousands of dollars.

3. Keeps the environment clean: Environmental pollution is the major concern all over the world. Generation of power with the help of sunlight is the safest method of meeting the basic power needs. This way we are getting the double benefit – we are not polluting the surroundings by making use of non-renewable sources of energy, plus we are getting it at low cost with the installation of affordable solar panels.

4. Low Maintenance Cost: Solar energy systems do not demand a lot of maintenance. You just need to keep them clean for their efficiency. Getting them cleaned 2-3 times a year does the job. You also get 20-25 years of warranty depending upon the manufacturer. As it does not involve moving parts so there is no risk of wear and tear.

5. Ease of installation: Setting up of a solar system has become a lot easy nowadays. There are a number of companies who do the job for you. Solarmatic is the best option to go with as we have a team of professionals to help you in making the best choice. You just need to share the details of your power consumption and rest is our responsibility to provide you with the best deal for your home or business. It adds value to your property.
