Commercial Solar Power System

If you have access to the electric grid and want to get the most value for your investment, solar energy system creates huge returns.

Generating your own clean electricity is offers many financial benefits. By owning your own solar energy system, you can enjoy greater energy independence, reduce energy costs, and own a valuable financial asset that will shelter you from electricity inflation over a long period of time.

Each time you pay your electric bill it’s like paying “rent” to the utility company. Why rent when you can own the power plant? For every dollar you spend on energy today, you could instead invest in a solar energy system and earn a solid return on investment (ROI).

How Solar Panels Work

Commercial Solar

Solar power works by converting light from the sun into electricity.

This electricity can then be used in your home or exported to the grid when it’s not needed. This is done by installing solar panels on your roof which generate DC (Direct Current) electricity. This is then fed into a solar inverter which converts the DC electricity from your solar panels into AC (Alternating Current) electricity.

Your solar panels are made up of silicon photovoltaic (PV) cells. When sunlight hits your solar panels, the solar PV cells absorb the sunlight’s rays and electricity is produced via the Photovoltaic Effect. The electricity produced by your panels is called Direct Current (DC) electricity, and which is not suitable to be used in your home by your appliances. Instead, the DC electricity is directed to your central inverter (or micro inverter, depending on your system set up).

Your inverter is able to convert the DC electricity into Alternating Current (AC) electricity, which can be used in your home. From here, the AC electricity is directed to your switchboard.

A switchboard allows your usable AC electricity to be sent to the appliances in your home. Your switchboard will always ensure that your solar energy will be used first to power your home, only accessing additional energy from the grid when your solar production is not enough.

All households with solar are required to have a bi-directional meter (utility meter), which your electricity retailer will install for you. A bi-directional meter is able to record all the power that is drawn to the house but also record the amount of solar energy that is exported back to the grid. This is called net-metering.

Any unused solar electricity is then sent back to the grid. Exporting solar power back to the grid will earn you a credit on your electricity bill, called a feed-in tariff (FiT). Your electricity bills will then take into account the electricity you purchase from the grid, plus credits for the electricity generated by the solar power system that you don’t use.

With solar power, you don’t need to switch it on in the morning or switch it off at night – the system will do this seamlessly and automatically. You also don’t need to switch between solar power and the grid, as your solar system can determine when is best to do so based on the amount of energy being consumed in your home. In fact, a solar system requires very little maintenance (as there are no moving parts) which means you’ll hardly know it’s there. This also means a good quality solar power system will last a long time.

Your solar inverter (usually installed in your garage or in an accessible spot), can provide you with information like the amount of electricity being produced at any particular point in time or how much it has generated for the day or in total since it has been operating. Many quality inverters feature wireless connectivity and sophisticated online monitoring.

If it seems complicated, don’t worry, one of Solar Power One expert Energy Consultant will guide you through the process of how solar power works either by phone, email, or via a no-obligation home consultation.

Our approach is honest, informative, no pressure

Feel secure that you’re protected from rising energy prices. Once you have installed a solar system on your roof, it will continue to generate free electricity from the sun year after year. This means you can substantially reduce or even eliminate your electricity bills, giving you the peace of mind that you’re doing what you can to keep your bills as low as possible while still enjoying the benefits of all the gadgets that electricity powers.

Government Incentives
The Federal Government’s ITC – Investment Tax Credit provides thousands of dollars towards purchasing and installing your system. In addition, state-based Feed-In Tariff pays you for any excess electricity you generate and don’t use.

Significant Investment Returns
There aren’t many financial investments better than solar. You’ll be saving on your electricity bill from day one. This could translate into a return on your initial investment of 15 -30% per annum for many years to come, with your solar energy system potentially paying for itself in around 3-6 years, depending on the system size.

Increase the value of your home
Energy-efficient homes have been proven to sell at a significant premium to less efficient ones. Imagine telling a prospective buyer that they could receive a cheque every 2 months instead of a bill. With rising electricity prices, buyers will increasingly focus on energy efficiency and solar when considering which home to purchase.

Do your bit for the environment
Electricity generated via your own solar system means that you’ll draw less electricity from the grid. This means less coal is burnt at power stations reducing the use of the biggest source of carbon pollution. Installing a system is the single most effective step you can take towards reducing your carbon footprint.
