Solar power is clean, renewable energy captured from the sun.
A solar power system uses photovoltaic (PV) technology to harness the sun's rays, converting sunlight photon energy into electrical current. As solar power panels produce energy from daylight, they still produce electricity on cloudy or overcast days. The Canberra climate has both extreme cold and extreme heat conditions. We strongly recommend panels that suit these conditions, so your system is effective all year round, not just over the warmer months.
Solar panels are connected to the mains power supply through an inverter. The inverter transforms DC solar panel voltage into AC power that is suitable for use by regular appliances. The inverter is technologically the most important component in a solar power system, that's why all our systems come with a SMA Sunny Boy – renowned as the world's best.
We’ve got great solar power packages on offer designed for the Canberra climate. While solar power does require an initial investment, it doesn't take long for you to start seeing the savings. By generating power at your home, you're protecting yourself from imminent rises in electricity costs.
Government incentives may soon increase with the review of Australia's Renewable Energy Target (RET). The results of the review will be announced mid year, but no date formally set. Going on past announcements, changes will probably be announced with little notice or warning - so if you're thinking of getting solar power, do it sooner rather than later.
