Yes, for all solar installations under 100KW you can claim STC’s ( small-scale technology certificates ). The number of STC’s vary depending on the system size. Generally, 1 stc is worth $36. For example, a 6.6KW system has 91 STC’s. 91 x $36 = $3,276.
In addition, there are also rebates available through the Solar Victoria programs.
Yes, you can add a solar battery to your current system with a method called AC Coupling. To achieve this you add a solar battery with a battery inverter to the solar system you had installed.
When the sunlight hits your solar panels, DC energy is produced. Your solar inverter then changes the power to AC. AC power is what we use throughout our homes. The power is then used throughout our homes and any excess power will get fed back into the grid.
The amount of money you save off your bill really varies, there are a few things to consider when determining how much money you will save.
The cost that you buy electricity for, how much power your system will actually produce, and how much of the power generated you actually use vs sending it back into the grid for a ‘feed-in tariff’. Ultimately to get the most out of your system and to save the most money, you want to use the power your system produces before feeding anything back into the grid.
The clean energy council approved retailer program is a voluntary ‘ best practice’ program for solar installers. It is solar companies committing to provide a standard higher than the legal requirement This can give customers the confidence that they will be provided with all appropriate information when making the decision to go with solar.
Yes, your system does require maintenance, we recommend getting your system serviced yearly to comply warranty.
No, in the event of a blackout out your solar system will turn off until the power returns. This is so it is safe for anyone working on the blackout will not be imposed to any danger. The only way to achieve blackout protection is to have an inverter with an emergency power supply with battery storage.
Any of our customers that are interested in finance we recommend them to use ‘Plenti’.
Generally, a 5-10KW will take 1-2 days.
The installation went well and Brooke’s team did an excellent job with complete professionalism. Every aspect of the work has been done neatly and looks superb. I will certainly recommend him to anyone who asks for my opinion. Excellent result.
Brooke was instrumental in covering large sections of rural Victoria and NSW and has developed a significant amount of knowledge in his time. I have complete faith in Brooke’s quality of work and work ethics, especially when it comes to customer service.
Prompt callout and availability was always punctual. His staff were courteous to deal with and polite. Day to day operations of our business continued without a hitch while the solar installation took place.
