FEED IN GOLD

Over the past two years, feed-in tariffs have risen from 6c to as high as 20c.  Due to this, we highly recommend that all existing customers contact their retailer to review their situation with the aim of obtaining a 15c or higher feed-in tariff.

For customers considering batteries, these changes pose some interesting questions.  Why store your power when you can sell it to the grid at nearly 5 times its generated value?

It’s also worth noting that homeowners can install up to 10kW per phase and be happily generating 15c/kWh from the grid all day long.
CRAP SOLAR IS ON THE RISE

Many customers will have seen the recent reports on the ABC and other news outlets in relation to Crap Solar.  Unfortunately, we are seeing just about all ‘price point’ offerings fail well before their 25-year life span and in many cases well before their warranted 10-year lifespan.  Since most of these cheaper offerings do not come with a labour warranty, is their warranty worth anything at all?

LG Solar panels come with 25-year parts and labour warranty.  They are the only brand that we trust when designing systems with an intended lifespan of more than 10 years.

From a Climate Change perspective, there is a larger issue at hand.  Solar panels are factored on the promise of reducing carbon emissions for 25 years.  It takes 2-5 years of embodied energy for a solar panel to be produced so rapidly failing systems could actually have a negative carbon result.

  1. Hello! thanks for such a clear and interesting article. Very necessary information. Recently I began to think often about solar energy and decided to install myself a solar panel for me and my parents. I think this will help me save money on utility bills for electricity. Now I am planning to select the equipment and install it correctly. It’s cool that you can save money and resources after installation.

  2. Solar panels are the green movement, which is an eco-friendly form of energy. Solar street lights are the best solar-powered lights that do not require any electrical power and also save a lot of money. Since Solar lights are fully powered by energy and cost-efficient, Silan Solar is one of the leading solar street light manufacturers in India. Explore the categories available and order now!

  3. Solar rooftop is solar panels placed on top of roofs of commercial, institutional or residential buildings. They capture the light energy emitted by the sun and convert it into electrical energy. This setup is also known as a rooftop solar photo-voltaic system. It produces a clean, Eco-friendly form of energy, meaning that it’s which does not produce any type of pollution or harmful gases.

  4. A solar system (with a battery system) of up to 10kW in a capacity that is installed at homes qualifies to be a residential solar system. The investment would be somewhere around Rs. 1,00,000 per kW.

    The electricity bills of a home are generally Rs. 1,000 per month. Installing a solar system in such an establishment could result in savings of Rs.8,400 per annum. The investment is expected to have an RoI (payback period) of ~10-11 years and the return on investments will be around 8%.
