Frequently Asked Questions
A stand-alone power system (SAPS) is an independent power system that is not connected to the electricity grid.
It typically includes solar panels, batteries, and an inverter to convert DC power to AC power.
A hybrid grid-connect system is a solar power system that is connected to both the electricity grid and a battery bank.
This system allows you to use solar power during the day and switch to the grid or battery power when solar power is not available.
The installation time for a solar power system varies depending on the size of the system and the complexity of the installation.
Typically, a residential system can be installed within 1-3 days.
In a grid-tied solar power system, the panels will not work during a blackout because they are designed to shut off automatically when the grid goes down. However, a hybrid or stand-alone system can continue to produce power during a blackout.
Our solar and engineering experts can evaluate your property to determine whether it is suitable for solar panels.
Factors such as the angle of your roof, the amount of shade on your property, and your energy usage will be considered.
In a grid-tied solar power system, you may be able to sell excess power back to the grid through the Western Australia Government’s Distributed Energy Buyback Scheme (DEBS).
You may be applicable if you own a power system capable of generating 500W to 5kW, A 6.6kW solar PV system with up to a 5kVa inverter
Yes, solar panels should be cleaned periodically to remove dirt, debris, and other contaminants that can reduce their efficiency.
A professional solar panel cleaning service can help ensure that your panels are working at their optimal capacity.
Solar power systems require very little maintenance. You may need to clean the panels periodically and check the batteries, but overall, the system should require minimal attention.
The amount of energy that a solar power system can produce depends on the size of the system and the amount of sunlight it receives.
A typical residential system can produce 10-25 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy per day.
Our in house solar and engineering experts can help you choose the right system for your needs based on factors such as your energy usage, budget, and property characteristics.
In Australia, the government offers a Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme that allows households to receive Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) as a form of rebate for installing solar panels.
This rebate can come off the cost of your solar power system.
