THE lifetime and payback period of your solar power system investment will depend on the quality and overall efficiency. That is why it's important to have a well-planned design, quality components, and a competent installation from a reputable company.  

SunPeople have installed over 3MW (megawatts) of solar capacity in the last four years. Over the life of these systems, they will off set carbon equivalent to planting four million trees.

Many solar companies come and go, leaving the consumer with problems if warranty issues arise. "SunPeople don't just sell a system and walk away, we are here to stay," managing director Dave Love said. "We are committed to quality products and after sales service to ensure your system is always performing at 100 per cent."

Quick tips about solar systems

Posted by SunPeople on Nov 30, 2018 4:10:12 PM

Here's three quick tips we think you should know;

1. Know your consumption patterns

It’s a good idea to find out how much energy your household consumes prior to installing a new solar system or an upgrade. It’s more cost-effective to self-use solar power rather than sell it to the grid. Therefore, if you use a lot of electricity during the day, or you can program your appliances to run during the day, a solar system can drastically reduce your power bills and can see shorter payback periods.

In contrast, if you only use electricity around typical work hours, you will see a longer
payback period on your system.

Solar power: with or without batteries?

Posted by SunPeople on Nov 30, 2018 4:05:55 PM

Solar systems do not necessarily require a battery. The battery is only required if you want to store excess energy

Because solar panels produce their electricity when the sun is shining, a battery is a great asset if you want to use solar generated electricity at night.

Are solar panels worth purchasing?

Posted by SunPeople on Nov 14, 2018 2:50:35 PM


The short answer is yes.

  • Installing a system of solar panels on your home can reduce your power bills and even provide a profit. 
  • It costs approximately 5 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) to produce solar power, and it costs approximately 26 cents per kWh to purchase from the grid.
  • The general rule is that in NSW, a residential solar system can save around $400 annually, per kW of production capacity. A potential savings of $2000 annually.
