Yes, residential solar is definitely a viable investment. Making the most of the current government rebate the average payback for a 6.5kW Solar system is 3-5 Years. With solar inverter and panel warranties now exceeding 10 years, your savings will continue well into the future.
G-Solar & Electrical specialise in designing Solar systems to suit all types of energy users. The most common size for a residential house is a 6.5kW system. The 6.5kW system generally consists of 6.5kW of Solar panels and a 5kW single phase inverter.
This is the “Go To” size for most home owners as the current government rebate on solar panels makes this size system a very affordable option.
The most common misconception when it comes to residential solar systems is “my roof must face north” While North facing roofs provide great power during the middle of the day, there are definitely advantages of having solar panels that may face East or West as they can provide you power at varying times of the day.
(For example if you are someone that likes to do your washing/cleaning in earlier sun hours of the day then an east facing array may benefit you more than North.)
We highly recommend using quality equipment with proven long term warranties that give our clients peace of mind. Quality products paired with our preventative maintenance plans, will ensure you will get the most reliability and efficiency out of your system for many years to come.
Yes, going off grid is a great way to protect our environment and to ensure you will not have to pay another electricity bill. However, our recommendation if you are already connected to the electricity grid and you were looking at a battery system would be a hybrid set-up for affordability and reliability.
Hybrid energy systems will run entirely separate to the electricity grid while there is charge in your energy storage. Once your battery storage becomes depleted or there is not enough solar energy to power your house, electricity will then be taken from the electricity grid.
If your Hybrid Solar System is sized correctly for your energy usage, very minimal electricity will be purchased from your energy provider.
