The sun is the ultimate natural, free energy source. The roof top of an average home collects about 50 times as much solar power as a household requires with no carbon emissions and no greenhouse gases. solar power can provide abundant heat, with increasing costs of electricity – and the growing environmental costs – switching to solar hotwater has never made more sense.
Solar Power or Solar Hot water? Or both?
Families see dramatic power bill decreases utilising even the simplest of solar solutions, like Solar Hot Water heating. They may choose to upgrade their system down the track with a Solar Power PV system after seeing bill reductions from hot water. Some people choose to start with Solar PV to get the biggest savings the fastest, and some people install complete Solar PV and Solar Hot Water systems at the same time for maximum savings. Whatever your budget, we have a solution to get chopping your power bills straight away.

Choosing the right system
Everyone has different requirements and choosing the best kind of system to fit your power usage needs covers all your bases. Take a look at the list below to see some of the different kinds of solar setups we can provide and which one suits you the best.
Back up storage
If you are connected to a power company and want access to your own solar power during a power cut, the Back Up Storage system will draw emergency power from your batteries, up to the maximum you have stored. With this inverter unit your solar power keeps the batteries topped up, ready for back up use, and also supplies power to your house. These units are designed to switch over and draw from the batteries in a power cut so you have your own emergency power. They do not feed surplus solar power back to the power company so getting the battery size right is important. We install Back Up Storage systems ranging from 2kW up to 20kW with up to 20kWh in battery storage.
