Australia, The Sun Blessed Country.
Our greatest natural resource is one which will provide more than 6 Billion years of power, the SUN. Australia has some of the best solar capabilities in the world, which means going solar is a strong contender compared to other energy saving strategies.
Solar power is generated from the sun when there is sufficient light energy. The solar cells convert light energy in the form of photons into electricity (Direct Current – DC). The inverter, then converts the Direct Current to Alternate Current (AC) for your household to use.
During sunlight hours, solar power assists with the supply of power to the household, an alternative to using power from the power company. Through monitoring usage habits and spacing out utilisation during the day, you can make the most of a solar powered solution.
Any excess solar energy sent back to the power grid, is recognised as a credit, also known as a solar contribution on your energy bill. This means your electricity retailer will purchase any excess solar, that your solar array feeds back into the grid. If you require more electricity, you are still able to utilise power from the grid – ensuring you are supplied with the necessary amount of power for your home.
