In a Hurry for Solar?

The deadline for people to take advantage of their 44c Teed-In Tariff (FIT) under the Queensland Solar Bonus Scheme is now very quickly approaching. To be eligible to claim your pre-registered contract under the scheme, a solar power system needs to be installed and registered with Energex by the electrician by the 30th of June 2013 – With no extensions granted. Solar_Power_Sunshine_Coast

It might seem like the time to hurry to get solar power panels on your roof but don’t let a sense of urgency create panic for making a bad decision. Like any major purchase you still need to do your research and gather information about the products, performance, guarantees and support for the system so you can understand more than just a solar power price.

The reason why it’s a pre-winter sale is because we’re making way for new stock in time for the winter rush so we need to clear our warehouse floor. Winter is the peak time for solar hot water installs, as many old electric systems will pack-up in the chill of the winter nights. As the busy time for solar approaches we are offering great prices on all our stock. All of our systems priced to go…

Case Study: Off Grid Solar House

Project Overview

This residential customer had been quoted tens of thousands of dollars to be connected to the grid, despite the fact that their house is in the middle of Cleveland, on Brisbane’s bayside. Making a decision that they’d like to pursue a radically different course they started looking for a company that could help them achieve their goals. Stand Alone Solar Power

The Solar Guys worked with the customer to develop a complete off-grid solar and diesel power system along with high performance solar pool heating and solar hot water systems. The final project is a showcase of our multi-disciplined approach utilising cutting-edge solar technology.

We were overwhelmed with the enquiry at the Courier Mail Brisbane Home Show and would like to thank everyone who came to get information from The Solar Guys and the support they have given our ideas and solar solutions. 

It was a big trade show mostly because of the enquiry we had for the my SunBank battery storage solutions and how people can see this working for them in their home or business. My Sunbank is all about making solar work financially and give back control to the customer in times of high power prices and low feed-in tariff rates. With such a low grid price incentive for excess kilowatt-hours sold from a solar system, its time for consumers to look harder at how solar can work with the assistance of battery storage to use solar power after dark.

Is Your Solar Working?

How do you know if your solar panels are actually working? Sure the inverter will give a daily read out and can be tracked over the long term but we’re now seeing more customers come forward who want a greater peace of mind when it comes to tracking the performance of their system on a micro level. 

And if you went away for a month and left nothing but the solar panels operating how would you honestly know that the system is up and running without any lingering issues?
