how to get the best result from your solar panel system

What Makes a Solar System?

Solar Panels

Usually 250W is commonly used solar panel size. Multiple panels of 250w makes a solar array as per requirement.

Solar Grid Inverter

Solar panels generate DC power, which cannot be used to power household appliances. Solar inverters used to convert DC power to AC to meet day to day energy needs. Inverter size determined to meet the output of solar panels during designing of system array . Solar inverters are available in different sizes to meet up design requirements in consideration of local laws.

Solar Panel Mounting.

Every Home roof is different, means we need different mounting brackets to ensure panels fitted well on roof. Major solar installers use special mounting brackets to install solar panels securely on roof. These brackets are specially designed to hold panels on roof without any damage to roof or structure.

Solar System Installation

Every solar system needs to be designed according to site. CEC accredited Installer Design and install solar system to ensure consumers get best output.


What Components Included in Solar Panel System?

Many of you quite often think about how many panels you need. Or what major components solar panel system do include?
Main components for solar panel installation are

  • Solar Panels
  • Solar Inverter
  • Solar Mounting

Other items will be included with standard installation as an accessories such as cables, Dc and Ac isolators, monitoring devices and labels.

How would solar panel system connected?

When we are connecting multiple solar panels, you have few combinations on how to connect solar panels. You can connect them in series, parallel or a combination of both.

It actually depends on how you are getting the best out from solar panel array.

Solar Panels Connected in Series or parallel

In general grid connected solar panel systems would be connected in series. Link > Learn More about Parallel or in series?

How much Power a solar system generate?

Installing a solar panel system is a great way to save on energy bills for medium to large home or business. Solar panel system can give immediate impact on family or business’s budget, saving thousands every year. Family can harvest savings according to their usage patterns, property location and orientation.

In optimum conditions every kW solar panel system would generate approx. 3.9 kWh/day.

Rebates available on Solar panel system

Solar Rebates Zone Map

Under the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme, eligible solar power systems are entitled to a number of small-scale technology certificates (STCs), depending upon the size of the system and the region in which it is installed. The table below gives an example of the value of the STCs for different sized systems in zones 1, 2, 3 & 4 in Australia. The zones are shown on the subsequent map.

Cost of installing solar panel system

Solar sector is highly competitive, with a large numbers of business offering different size solar panel systems with different designs, components, levels of Quality and performance.

Solar power system price highly depends on many factors and price varies size to size and product to product.

How long before a Solar system pays for itself?

This is totally depends on many factors such as price you paid for a solar system installation, panels array orientation, your consumption, usage patterns and weather.

Solar owners can reimburse their investment in 3-5 years considering they have installed panels in optimum direction. 100% self-consumption can optimize the ROI.

How to ensure solar products are safe?

All accredited solar installers must use products that meet Australian Standards. The Clean Energy Council has compiled a list of approved products including solar PV modules (panels) and grid connect inverters that meet these standards. In order to qualify for government incentives for the solar PV system, installers must use approved equipment listed by the Clean Energy Council. Click here to browse approved solar PV inverters.

How to ensure the installation up to standards.

Every kW solar panel system installation carried out by an accredited installer is required to meet the following Australian Standards:

AS 4777 Grid-connections of energy systems via inverters

AS/NZS 3000 Electrical wiring rules

AS 1768 Lightning protection

AS/NZS 1170.2 Wind loads

AS/NZS 5033 Installation of photovoltaic (PV) arrays
