Australia is known for its warm climate and strong sun. Often referred to as the sunburnt country, this poses a considerable opportunity to harness the power of the sun through solar panels. A newly installed solar system produces free electricity for up to 25 years, providing you with considerably monetary gains. This aligns with 1Solar's vision, which is to make solar affordable for every Australian on the continent. A full return on investment is usually seen within 2 to 3 years, with continued electricity bill savings for the next two decades.
The most recommended direction to install the solar system is the north side of the roof. However, if we are unable to install the panels on the desirable side of your roof, we can still install them on your shed, verandah, or elsewhere on your property after careful inspection.
The electricity collected from the solar system is converted from direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC) with the help of a solar inverter. Electricity generated by the solar system is first utilised by the house, with any leftover paid back to the grid at a rate decided by your Electricity retailer FIT (Feed-In Tariff).
It entirely depends on the total usage. The takeaway is how smartly you use the electricity produced by solar. Our solar experts and CEC accredited installer will be designing a customised solar system solution based on your usage, allowing you to save up to 80% on your electricity bills.
Solar systems work during the day when the sun is out. The total estimated solar produced can be used during the day, and any unused goes back to the grid where it is eventually credited back to your electricity bill. For storing solar power, you will require batteries. Our solar experts will explain to you the available battery solutions for your building.
On a cloudy day, the performance of the solar system reduces by half. If your usage will be more than what is being produced by the solar system, then the power is directly generated from the grid.
All our solar systems come with a warranty. Our panels come with a warranty of 25 years and the inverter comes with a warranty of 5 years, which can get extended to 10 years as well. However, 1Solar exclusively provides a 10 Year Installation and Workmanship Warranty as well.
Yes, you can upgrade to more panels on your solar system, however, you are limited by the size of your inverter. If the size of your solar system doesn't permit additional panels, you can purchase a new solar system with increased panels.
