Frequently asked questions
What size system do I need to cover my energy bill?
How much will I save by installing solar (& a battery)?
If any solar company tells you “You’ll never pay for power again!” you’d think it was fantastic – however, unfortunately that is not the case. Solar will cover your day time use, combined with batteries will allow you to store and use the power you have generated into the evening. In most cases you will receive a bill, our aim is to reduce that bill as much as possible.
With a well sized system, you can expect an approximate saving of 50% off your bill – this may vary and is very dependant on how well you utilise your system and make the most of your solar generation. Our team can help with tips and tricks to reap the maximum benefits. Adding a battery can further your savings by an additional 25% though once again this is dependant on your usage. One of the services we provide when we deliver your quote, is to calculate the projected savings you will incur on your power bill, including a projected time frame in which your solar system will have paid for itself via the savings you make on power.
How many panels will go on my roof and where do they go?
The amount of panels required will depend on the required kilowatt generation of your home – if you install a 5.2Kw system, around 16 panels will be required to generate that power. The placement of our panels is designed to maximise the sun exposure during the day – usually favouring a north or north-west aspect to utilise the sun’s rays well into the afternoon, though an east/west split array can also function quite well. All of this is dependant on the roof space available at your home, the direction your house is facing and if your roof is shadowed by trees, rooftop apendages (ie antennas, pipes, etc) as this will also impact your system’s ability to generate power.
What is the difference between AC and DC Systems?

Why do we use LG and Jinko panels?
How long does it take to install my system?
Once you pay your deposit we average 3-4 weeks to install your system.
This time frame allows us to order your stock, get the relevant approvals from the various State authorities, and schedule you in with install teams to do the actual installation. Installation generally takes one day or less to install.
