Solar Power

How does it work?

  1. Photovoltaic solar panels: The solar panels convert sunlight into Direct Current (DC) electricity.
  2. Inverter: An inverter then converts the DC electricity into 240-volt alternating current (AC) electricity suitable to power appliances in your house hold.
  3. Power for your home: Your home uses electricity firstly from the solar panels. If your electricity use is higher than the supply available from the panels, your system gets the extra power from the electricity network.
  4. Monitoring usage:  A meter is used to monitor the electricity used from the electricity network as well as the electricity your house supplies to this network.
  5. Excess Energy: If your solar panel system produces more electricity than you use, the excess electricity is exported to the electricity network.


The Process:

Firstly, you will need to speak with one of our experienced and knowledgeable team members to decide on which system is best suited to your home and needs.

An Application for Network Connection will then be submitted to Ergon or Energex by us on your behalf.

Once approved, you will receive a contract from your provider within a few days which needs to be signed and returned before a system can be installed.

One of our team members will visit the property so that they can properly assess the job and provide a written quote. The job will commence once a contract of works has been signed and a deposit paid for the system.

Depending on stock and specifications, most systems are installed and running within a week, however your electricity provider (Energex or Ergon) will then come out to the property within 20 business days of the initial installation, to change over your meter and connect the system to the grid.


What size systems are available?

System sizes range from 1.5KW through to 30KW systems depending on your requirements.

ABB Aurora Inverters

The most common residential inverter is the ideal size for an average-sized family home. This family of single-phase string inverter complements the typical number of rooftop solar panels, allowing home-owners to get the most efficient energy harvesting for the size of the property. This rugged outdoor inverter has been designed as a completely seald unit to withstand the harshest environmental conditions.

One of the key benefits of the Uno family of single-phase inverters is the dual input section to process two stings with independent MPPT especially useful for rooftop installations with two different orientations. The high soeed MPPT offers real-time power tracking and improved energy harvesting.

The transformerless operation gives the highest efficiency of up to 96.8%. The wide input voltage range makes the inverter suitable to low power installations with reduced string size.

On the Sunshine Coast, the sun shines on average about 2,800 hours per year and is one of our most reliable abundant sources of energy. The amount of energy Australia receives from the sun in one week is more then all Australians use in 119 years. Solar is a reliable and free source of energy.

Solar power is 100 % sustainable, safe and clean

Solar power or Photovoltaic (PV) systems do not produce harmful emissions or polluting gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2). Unlike the burning of fossil fuels such as oil, coal or wood, solar power has no negative impact on our environment. It actively contributes to the containment of global warming and to a significant reduction of carbon dioxide.

Solar power is free

Sunshine is free! And even on cloudy days, a solar power system will produce energy. The sun is the only “fuel” the solar panels need to create electricity.

Solar power creates no noise

A solar power system works without sound. And as there are no moving parts, there is nothing to wear-out. Solar power systems are relatively easy to install and almost maintenance-free.

Solar power is produced and used in a local area

Usually, solar power is produced and consumed in the same area, for instance the electricty generated by your PV system is either used in the home or by your neighbours. Therefore, there is no loss of power due to transportation.

Solar power is abundant

In contrast to fossil fuels, solar power is available in limitless quantities. The Gympie region is particularly well suited for the use of solar power as it is exposed to high levels of solar irradiation every day.
