Absolutely! Every solar PV panel we sell is covered by a performance warranty, usually spanning 25 years. Additionally, manufacturing warranties can cover your entire solar power system for up to 10 years. As we stock a variety of brands, warranty specifications will differ from product to product.

Generally, most mechanical defects will be covered during the warranty period as long as they are deemed a manufacturing fault. Most suppliers also guarantee 80% power production for the first 25 years of your solar power system’s life.

It is important to understand that warranty terms and conditions vary supplier to supplier. To determine the official warranty guidelines of our products.

The grid connect inverter will automatically shut itself off within a few milliseconds of a blackout. This avoids the potential of a dangerous “brown-out” in your home and to prevent back feeding into the grid. Therefore, even though you have a solar system during a blackout you will not have power available. If you want to keep on having electricity available during a blackout then you would need back up batteries. This will add to the cost of the system.
Grid connect systems, which are the most common in built up areas, supply solar electricity through an inverter directly to the household and to the electricity grid if the system is providing more energy than the house needs. When power is supplied to the mains grid, the home owner usually receives a credit or a payment for that electricity. This is called a feed in tariff.
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 that the system generates can change due to:
  • the amount of dust and water vapour in the air,
  • how much cloud cover
  • any shading of the solar panels
  • and the quality of the solar modules.
Most certainly. For example, a system with solar panels facing in a southerly direction will generate far less than one with a northerly aspect. However, east/west installations can be a good option depending on the installation scenario.
Usually the inverter goes alongside the fuse box. The inverter is silent and has a display to show the electricity generated and other data options such as total electricity generated since installation, are available.
Solar panels take light from the sun and make electricity. Solar hot water systems take heat from the sun and heat water. It is easy to remember:
  • Heat from the sun heats the water.
  • Light from the sun turns on the lights.

Solar panels lower the amount of electricity you need to buy from your power provider, any excess electricity your system produces (surplus power) is sold back to the power provider, this is at a higher rate than what you pay for standard electricity. The other benefit is the lowering of you carbon foot print due to the production of green power.

With Australia getting more and more solar powered housing, home buyers are looking at choosing homes with some solar contribution to the ever-increasing cost of power. This goes a long way in maximizing the sale price of your home or unit.

In a grid connect system, as you are still tied to the mains power supply, any deficit will come from the mains grid.
Yes. You can get additional solar panels at any time to increase generating capability but you might have to upgrade to a larger inverter. Alternatively you could purchase a larger inverter when installing the system initially and then plan to add some extra solar panels later.
Prices vary according to size and location.
Yes, due to the lower hours of sunlight during winter there is an effect however by installing the units correctly and Solar Photovoltaic systems rely on sunlight and ultra violet rays, not heat, you will not notice the difference. In the summer with longer hour is when surplus power is more readily produced.
Yes, we offer a number of great options depending on what you are more comfortable with. We offer an interest free payment plan for all of our systems using Brighte.
Not always. A three phase inverter directs power across all 3 phases evenly, however you can also have a standard inverter and not adversely affect your returns because your new digital meter will usually reconcile the power across all three phases in 15 minute increments. Whether or not you need a 3 Phase Inverter really depends on the size of your system, your load and usage profile and future plans so please contact our solar staff so that we can assess what you have in your home and then provide you with the right information.
Solar power, like other renewable energy resources, has many environmental and health benefits. Going solar reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which contribute to climate change, and also results in fewer air pollutants like sulfur dioxide and particulate matter, which can cause health problems.
Studies have shown that homes with solar energy systems sell for more than homes without them. However, your property value will only increase if you own, rather than lease, your solar panel system. In most parts of the country, going solar will actually increase your property value more than a kitchen renovation.
Solar panel systems are made of durable tempered glass and require little to no maintenance for the 25 to 35 years that they will generate power. In most cases, you don’t even need to clean your solar panels regularly. If something does happen, most equipment manufacturers include warranties, although warranty terms depend on the company.
