Residential Solar Solutions

1. How Does It Work?

Solar power works by converting light from the sun into electricity.

When installing a solar array for your home, the main components we install are a solar panels and an inverter. Solar panels installed on the roof of your home capture sunlight during the day and convert it into a direct current (DC). The installed inverter will receive this DC and convert it into an alternate current (AC), which can then power your home. When you turn your lights on or plug in your laptop, you’ll be using power from the sun. Solar panels provide a great, environmentally friendly electricity alternative.

Consultation
During the consultation, we’ll conduct an energy assessment for your home. This will help us determine the best solar solution for you and your family.

Approval
Before we install the system, we need to get approval. This approval is similar to an approval from a council, and the green light is needed before work can begin.

Installation
Once the approval has been confirmed, we can install the system in your home. We’ll pick an installation date that’s convenient to you, so you don't need to stress.

Contact
After the installation is complete, we’ll contact the network owner and your energy retailer to let them know. In some cases, we provide a report detailing the installation to the network.

Network
In the final step, the network owner will send someone out to your home to reprogram your power metre. Congratulations, you're now using solar power!

Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs)

Government rebates are designed to help Australia reach our target of having 20% of all energy generations come from a clean energy source by the year 2020. STCs are available for solar power systems that are 99.9kW or less. STCs are provided as an upfront subsidy, and the number of certificates awarded per solar power system will depend on where your home or business is located, as well as how large the system is you choose to install. Australia is mapped into five different zones, with each zone receiving a differing amount of sunlight each day. Installations in zones that receive more sunlight will be eligible for more certificates. In addition, larger systems also receive more certificates, and therefore a higher rebate.

Large-scale Generation Certificates (LGCs)

Like STCs, LGCs are designed to help Australia reach it’s clean energy goal by 2020. Businesses who install a solar power system that is 100kW or larger, will eligible for LGCs. Unlike STCs that are available as an upfront subsidy, LGCs are provided as ongoing payments. For every 1MWh of renewable electricity generated, you’ll be eligible for one LGC.

Grid Feed in Tarrifs

Grid feed in tariffs are different again. This is a rate that’s paid for any electricity that’s fed back into the electricity grid from a renewable source, such as your home or business’ solar panel system. In Australia, grid feed-in tariffs are run by individual states, so the specific arrangement will be different depending on your premises location. These feed in tariffs are also not available for every system. The size of the system as well as its location will determine if you are eligible for any feed in tariff.
