How does solar work?

The Solar Modules (panels) will collect the Solar light and converts it into electricity/ power. (see our recommended solar panels)

What size system do I need?

Your system size required will be dependent on your electricity bill and what your property can hold. Our consultants will be able to take you through this process.

How can I benefit from solar?
  • Reduced electricity bills
  • Low maintenance
  • Reduced emissions
  • Feed-in tariff and rebates
Are there any disadvantages?

The system will only generate power while the sun is out. To combat this there are technologies like Solar Batteries that will help store energy during the day to use at night. (see our recommended solar batteries)

How much does it cost?

Prices will vary according to size and location. Please refer to our estimating tool.

What is an inverter?

Your Inverter is a device that converts the Sun’s energy into usable Power. Converting DC to AC. (see our recommended solar inverters)

Do I need a battery?

To have benefits of Solar during the night, it is beneficial to have a battery. You can always have a battery ready system and add it later.

I already have Solar. Can get a battery with my current system?

It is possible to have a Battery retro-fitted to your current system.

How long will my solar system last?

All our solar panels have a warranty output of up to 25 years. Inverters will last 10-15 years they come with a standard warranty of 5 years which you can choose to increase.

Can I insure my solar system?

Most insurers will include your Solar system in your home and contents insurance policy.

Can you put solar panels on a carport or a detached garage?

Yes, installing solar panels on a detached building on your property like sheds, carports, or garages, is now an option! Find out more by reading our article: Can Solar Panels be Installed on a Detached Building on my Property?
