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.

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.
