    Why choose solar power for your home?

    Solar power used to be criticised for its cost and lack of efficiency. Thankfully technology has now advanced to the point where a solar solution is a viable energy option for your home. Solar power has now proven itself to be extremely beneficial, not just for the environment, but also financially speaking.

    Partly due to an ever-increasing demand for sustainable energy, solar power technology has been given significant investment. Solar technology has improved considerably over the last few years and can now be complemented by solar battery storage systems. This turns an already renewable source of clean energy into an efficient way to power your residence.

    Advantages of residential solar systems

    There are many benefits to investing in a residential solar power system. Clean solar energy is better for the environment, more stable in the long term, and better for your wallet. Here’s our top four reasons to invest in a solar power system for your home.

    1. Solar energy is a renewable energy source

    The biggest advantage of solar energy is that it is a truly renewable energy source. Take comfort in the fact that you’re doing your part to save the world. Solar power can be used anywhere and everywhere, and it’s available every day (even when cloudy!). Humans won’t run out of solar energy. If we ever did, we’d have bigger problems to worry about.

    Other common sources of energy take their toll on the environment, and may run out sooner than you think. Solar power will be around as long as the sun. According to scientists, that will be another 5 billion years.

    2. Reduce your home electricity bills with solar power

    Solar power won’t provide 100% of your energy needs, but it will support it significantly. You’ll be supplementing your energy usage with the electricity your solar system has generated. This causes your energy bills to drop. What may start as a significant investment, reaps dividends in savings down the line.

    How much you end up saving is going to depend on the size of your home solar system, and your electricity or heat usage. Not only will you be saving on energy costs, but you may also receive energy credits for the surplus that you provide back to the grid. Any extra electricity that your solar panels capture can be supplied back to the main power grid. Providing you are connected to the grid, of course.

    3. Solar panels require little maintenance

    In general, residential solar power systems don’t require a lot of maintenance. Just keep the solar panels relatively clean. Wiping them a couple of times a year should be sufficient, but consult your owner’s manual or solar provider if you’re not sure. If you’re not comfortable accessing the solar panels or dealing with the equipment, there are professionals around that will provide this service for you.
    We provide products that supply up to 25 years warranty. High quality solar equipment manufacturers are comfortable offering long warranties due to the fact that there are no moving parts. No moving parts means no wear and tear. After an initial investment setting up your home solar system with high-grade solar products, you can expect to spend very little on maintenance or repair work.

    4. Solar technology is constantly improving

    Solar power technology is constantly improving and these improvements will only speed up in the near future. Governments around the world are getting on board with solar power and offering grants to researchers, and rebates to consumers. New innovations in areas like quantum physics and nanotechnology may also increase the efficiency of solar panels and double, or even triple, the energy efficiency of residential solar power systems.

    Residential solar monitoring

    Energy consumption in the home is typically higher in the morning when people are getting ready for work and school. Later in the evening it spikes again when the residents return from these activities before bedtime. Solar power however, is mainly generated during the middle of the day when people are away from their homes. This means that there is an excess of solar generation during this time, and overflow is exported back to the grid at around 11 cents per kilowatt hour.

    When people return to their homes in the evening, no power is being produced and therefore electricity must be purchased from the grid at around 25 cents per kilowatt hour. Clearly, this isn’t ideal.
    A great way to maximise your self-consumption is by setting timers on all of your big ticket items. This includes heating and cooling systems, water heating, pool pumps and electric vehicles. Timing these to run during the day will make the most out of your solar purchase.

    The Solar Edge online monitoring platform gives you the potential to optimise the use of solar, grid, loads, and stored energy. This results in maximum savings on your energy bill and in turn, offsets the installation cost of your solar panel system.
