1. Solar Panels collect the UV/Sunlight produced throughout the day and is converted into  DC Power (Direct Current).

2. Inverter receives DC and converts it into AC power (Alternate Current). AC is the electricity you run your household on.
You will draw from this electricity created by your solar panels to power your home first. Any excess power your system has created will be sent back to the grid or stored in your battery storage.

3. Battery Storage will store any excess energy your system creates for later use such as nighttime. If you have a Grid Connect with Battery Storage/ Hybrid System and your battery storage is charged any excess energy will be sent back to the grid.

4. PWC Digital meter measures your power usage and excess energy sent back to the grid. It's a good way to monitor if you are drawing more power than your systems output.

5. Power Grid receives excess energy your system creates. Your power provider will award you with a feed-in tariff (1:1 in the NT), this is what creates the credit toward your power account and reduces your bill. If your energy load is larger than the solar production, you will draw only what is needed from the grid.

6 GOOD REASONS TO GO SOLAR

Do you like the idea of going solar but you still need a little convincing that installing a Solar Power System is the best decision for you? Read the following reasons and see if you can still walk away without booking a site assessment for a quote!

Low power bills or Never pay a bill again!

You can stop that dreaded feeling "here comes another power bill" and replace that with excitement to see what your solar system has saved you! Many of our customers are in credit in the first full quarter after installation.

*In the NT you receive the 1:1 Feed in Tariff - this means the current rate for power is what you are paid per kWh your system sends back to the grid. This excess is what creates your credits.

Generate your own power

The energy created by the sun every day can be collected through Solar Panels to generate electricity to run your household or business. 

Any surplus you create will be fed back to the grid and your account will be credited according to the current Feed-In-Tariff (1:1 in the NT).

There are government incentives 

There are government incentives to go solar, provided by both the Federal and States governments which include STCs and Feed-In Tariffs. Be sure to watch your state government for any Renewable, Renovation or First Home Buyers incentives! 

Contribute to the wellbeing of the Envionment

Solar is a renewable energy. It draws energy from the UV rays of the sun, then creating power to run your home, business, campsite and so much more! It does not require any nasty chemicals or products, just a big beautiful shining sun! Feel some peace that you are contributing less to the harm of the planets future.

Add more value to your property

When you install a reliable and quality solar power system to your property, it instantly will add value to your property. It will add favourability on the leasing and selling market too! Solar, it just keeps on giving!

Creating more jobs for local workers

When making the choice as to an installer, choose local. This choice creates jobs, withholds those jobs, encourages the local economy as we spend locally and it gives you, the customer peace of mind having on hand, local servicing!
