When it comes to solar power in Perth, we are very lucky to be in a fantastic solar region, with a very high average ‘sun hours’ per day.
This means that for the majority of houses in Perth, Solar is a very good option to not only reduce our footprint on the planet, but to also reduce quite significantly the ever-rising cost of energy.
PV Grid connect systems, or ‘solar power’ as they are more commonly referred to, are connected to the electricity supply grid.
An inverter converts DC low voltage power generated by the solar panels to 240V AC household supply voltage. The smart meter also manages how much electricity is drawn from or fed back into the grid. When excess “Green” electricity is fed into the grid, the meter ticks backwards (or reads a credit), so the household only pays the difference between what is fed and drawn.
We here at Terrasol believe in providing Perth Homes and Businesses, with affordable, high quality complete solar solutions.
Deciding on a system can be daunting, confusing and scary. Which brand inverter? which brand of panels? what sort of monitoring do you need? These questions are just the beginning, and the more you look into it, the more you can get confused.
The good news is we are here to help, not only will we sit down with you and go through a complete design process to tailor a system that will suite your energy needs and budget.
Some of the MUST HAVE items when it comes to solar, are as follows:
- Reputable inverter such as Fronius, ABB or SMA
- Panels which are not only well known but also on the CEC Approved modules list such as Canadian, LG or Qcell.
- Good quality Smart bi-direction meter that will link with the inverter analytics that will allow you to read generation and consumption paths
- Good quality Switch gear, such as IMO (very important)
