How does the solar rebate work?
When you install your solar system you can receive your government rebate by claiming STCs. STC stands for small-scale technology certificate. The amount of STC’s you will receive will depend on the size of your system and how much energy will likely be generated by where you live. The value of your STC is influenced by the fluctuating market value. Solar rebate will be deducted from the total solar system cost so that you pay the difference out of pocket.
Do my solar panels produce power when the sun is not shining?
The amount of power your solar energy system can generate is dependent on sunlight. As a result, your solar panels will produce slightly less energy when the weather cloudy, and no energy at night. However, because of high electricity costs and government incentives, solar is a smart decision even if you live in a cloudy city.
Is there solar panel maintenance cost?
Solar panel systems are made of durable tempered glass and require little to no maintenance for the 25 to 35 years that they will generate power. In most cases, you don’t even need to clean your solar panels regularly.
Can I install on flat roof?
Yes, you can. A tilt mounting system can be used and install the solar panels in a certain direction so that the panel still collects the maximum energy from the sun and give you the best output.
Do I need a battery power pack?
It all depends on your lifestyle and how many members of your family. If you have a big family, a swimming pool, more electronic appliances, ducted air-con, and average usage is more than 45 kWh per day then it’s a smart investment to install a big solar system with battery storage. Then you can use it at night and it will work out better in the long run.
