Solar Panels Solar...Frequently Asked Questions

We have collected some of the most frequently asked questions from customers


What will a solar power panels system cost?

We show prices on our webpages, that give a good indication of what a particular system might cost. A ‘standard’ system is based upon certain factors being present. These are the roof type, whether it’s a single or multi-level home, if a compliant power connection is present and whether the job is within our normal service area. So, in many cases, you can expect the advertised system prices to be not that far from what your firm, fixed priced quote from us will be.


I’ve got a bit of shade, is it still worth doing solar?

Shade is an unfortunate issue for many properties. Our general approach is to avoid the shaded areas totally if we can. If this can be done without overly compromising the expected production result, then, that’s what we’ll recommend. We have various devices that can help us to reduce the impact of shade, but this extra equipment will cost you extra too, so it’s essential that it can be shown that the project is still realistically viable with these added costs. If we believe that the intended system is not going to be worthwhile, then we’ll say so.


Can I use my new solar system to heat my water too?

Yes, in many cases this is very real option. If you have an existing electric tank or a heat pump, we can easily arrange to have your solar power, actually heat your water too. This is by adding a “hot water timer” into your meter box at the time of installation. We only recommend this if your expected hot water bill is sufficient to justify the expense of the timer. Sometimes, you’re better off just leaving the existing ‘off-peak’ power arrangements if they are in place. Some households use a lot of hot water, so for them it’s an easy decision. It’s really ‘defacto solar hot water” without the associated cost.


What about my place, it’s a little bit different, what happens then?

Of course, in some situations extra work and costs will be required, but rest assured, that we will be upfront about what its going to cost. We operate on a “fixed price” basis. When we assess what its going to cost to supply and install a system at your property, we’ll let you know exactly what our costs are, and advise you of any potential additional costs that you might incur from your power retailer, and if your meter box is going to require a compliance upgrade. Important stuff you need to know right from the start.


How long does it take to install a solar power system?

For many jobs, 5kw or 6kw solar system, it’s only a 4–5-hour exercise, even on larger installs, you can safely expect that the work is completed within a day. When SolarPowerPanels complete our quote for you, any expected delays or interruptions will be advised. Usually, the power is only turned off briefly, so you can expect to be able to use the power normally for most of the time the installation is underway.


What about Energex and my power retailer, do you help with that?

Yes! One of the most common questions we get is whether we assist in any dealings or requirements with your power retailer and Ergon or Energex. When we install a system all the relevant connection notices are given to the power authorities, so they can advise us of what is called an “EWR”. This is an acronym for “electrical works request”. When you job is complete, we will advise you of the EWR and what to do with it. Its all very straightforward and easy.


I see you have a lot of brands, why do you recommend them?

In short, we only deal with brands from manufacturers that firstly have been operating in the Solar Industry for some time, and have had a presence in Australia for a good while too, like Jinko Solar Australia, Hyundai Or Canadian Solar. We don’t experiment on you with new, exotic products or brands that haven’t been in the market long enough to make some kind of sensible assessment about. We also steer clear of setups that we believe to be unnecessarily complex. The end result is to save power, and not buy into potential performance and warranty issues.


So what size of the solar system do I need?

We'll do a quick quote to give you an idea of what a deal will cost. We can give a firm quote but there is a short list of things we need to know first. Like, how much is your power bill now, and also do you want a battery one day? What sort of roof do you have, and also is your home two-storey? Is your home on single or in fact on three-phase power? Do you want to pay cash or then maybe on terms? There will be a few more questions but we'll work them out in due course.

The rise of solar energy

Solar energy has seen a remarkable rise in popularity over the past decade. As concerns about climate change and the finite nature of fossil fuels have grown, people are increasingly looking for cleaner and more sustainable sources of power. Solar energy, which harnesses the power of the sun, has emerged as a viable solution. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), solar power capacity has increased by an average of 37% per year since 2010. This incredible growth can be attributed to several factors, including advancements in technology, government incentives, and a growing awareness of the environmental benefits of solar energy.

Solar panels, also known as photovoltaic (PV) panels, are at the forefront of this solar energy revolution. These panels are made up of interconnected solar cells, which convert sunlight into electricity. The electricity generated can be used to power homes, businesses, and even entire communities. Solar panels have become increasingly efficient and affordable, making them a popular choice for individuals and organizations looking to reduce their carbon footprint and save on energy costs.

From Sunlight to Savings: The Environmental and Financial Benefits of Going Solar

Going solar might just be the answer you've been searching for. Harnessing the power of the sun to generate electricity not only helps the environment but also provides numerous financial benefits. Solar energy is a renewable resource that produces clean electricity without emitting harmful greenhouse gases. Installing solar panels on your home or business can lead to substantial financial savings. As the cost of electricity continues to rise, generating your own power from the sun can help you offset those expenses. Additionally, many governments and utilities offer incentives and tax credits for adopting solar energy, further enhancing your economic benefits. Whether you're motivated by environmental concerns or a desire to save money, going solar is a win-win situation. Join the solar revolution and discover how harnessing the power of sunlight can lead to both environmental and financial rewards.

Hiring a professional solar installation company

When it comes to solar panel installation, hiring a professional company with expertise in the field is important. Installing solar panels is a complex process that requires careful planning and expert knowledge. A reputable solar installation company will assess your property, design a customized solar system, handle all necessary permits and paperwork, and ensure the installation is done safely and efficiently. Before hiring a solar installation company, it's essential to do your research. Look for companies with a proven track record, positive customer reviews, and certifications from recognized industry organizations.

Ask for quotes from multiple companies and compare their offerings, warranties, and financing options. Remember, solar panel installation is a long-term investment, so choosing a company that will provide reliable service and support for years to come is crucial.
