  • Why Go Green?
    Going green with solar energy has numerous benefits for both the environment and your finances. By harnessing the power of the sun, you contribute to reducing carbon emissions and combating climate change. Solar energy is a clean and renewable source of power that helps to decrease reliance on fossil fuels. Additionally, embracing solar energy can lead to long-term financial savings and energy independence.
  • Savings
    One of the most significant advantages of solar energy is the potential for substantial savings on your electricity bills. By generating your own clean energy from the sun, you can significantly reduce or even eliminate your reliance on grid-supplied electricity. This can result in substantial savings over the lifespan of your solar system, as you tap into free, abundant sunlight to power your home.
  • Am I Eligible?
    Solar energy is suitable for a wide range of households, and eligibility depends on several factors. Generally, if you own a property with a suitable roof or ground space for solar panel installation, you are likely eligible. Factors such as roof orientation, shading, and local regulations may also come into play. Our expert surveyors can assess your property and provide a detailed evaluation of your eligibility for solar energy.
  • Solar Installation Quotes
    To obtain accurate solar installation quotes, we recommend scheduling a free home energy survey with our expert surveyors. During the survey, they will assess your property, discuss your energy goals, and provide you with detailed quotes tailored to your specific requirements. These quotes will include the costs of solar panels, inverters, batteries, installation, and any additional components necessary for a complete solar system. We will compare and provide quotes from multiple trusted installers.
  • Choosing The Right Panels
    Choosing the right solar panels is crucial for optimal system performance and long-term savings. Factors to consider include the efficiency of the panels, their durability, warranties offered by the manufacturer, and your budget. Our team can provide guidance on selecting high-quality panels that suit your needs and ensure maximum energy generation.
  • What Are Inverters?
    Inverters play a vital role in solar energy systems. They convert the direct current (DC) electricity generated by solar panels into alternating current (AC) electricity that can be used to power your home. Inverters ensure that the electricity produced by your solar panels is compatible with your household appliances and the electrical grid.
  • Do I Need A Battery?
    While solar batteries are not necessary for every solar installation, they offer several benefits. Solar batteries store excess energy generated by your solar panels during the day, allowing you to use it during times when the sun is not shining, such as nighttime or cloudy days. They provide backup power and increase your energy independence. However, whether you need a battery depends on your specific energy needs and goals. Our team can assess your requirements and recommend whether a solar battery would be beneficial for your system.
  • System Cost
    The cost of a solar energy system depends on various factors, including the size of the system, the quality of the panels and inverters, installation complexity, and any additional components or features you choose. However, it's important to note that solar energy systems are a long-term investment that can provide significant savings over time through reduced energy bills. Our team can provide you with a detailed cost estimate based on your specific requirements and guide you through the available financing options and incentives to make your solar system more affordable.
  • Why Would I Want A Battery?
    Battery storage systems store excess electricity generated by your solar panels for later use when the sun is not shining or during times of high demand. These systems utilize rechargeable batteries to store the energy. Battery storage allows you to maximize self-consumption of the solar energy generated by your system, reducing reliance on the grid and providing backup power during grid outages. It helps increase energy independence, optimize energy usage, and improve the overall efficiency of your solar power system.
  • Energy Goals
    Consider what you are trying to achieve with your solar system. Are you aiming to offset a certain percentage of your energy consumption or become completely energy self-sufficient? By understanding your energy goals, our team can recommend a system size that aligns with your objectives and helps you achieve the desired level of energy independence.
  • What Sizes Are There?
    Small-Scale Batteries: Capacity Range: Typically up to 5 kilowatt-hours (kWh) Intended Use: Small-scale applications, such as powering individual appliances or providing backup power for essential loads during outages. Residential-Scale Batteries: Capacity Range: Usually between 5 kWh to 20 kWh Intended Use: Residential energy storage systems designed to store excess solar energy generated during the day for use during nighttime or periods of low solar production. Commercial-Scale Batteries: Capacity Range: Can vary widely, ranging from 20 kWh to several hundred kilowatt-hours. Intended Use: Commercial or industrial applications, where higher energy storage capacities are required to offset peak electricity demand, enhance grid stability, or provide backup power during emergencies. Utility-Scale Batteries: Capacity Range: Very large-scale systems, often measured in megawatt-hours (MWh) or gigawatt-hours (GWh). Intended Use: Grid-scale energy storage installations used by utilities to store surplus energy during times of low demand and release it during periods of high demand, improving grid stability and enabling the integration of renewable energy sources.
  • Pricing
    Budget considerations play a role in determining the size of the solar system. The size of the system will affect the overall cost, including equipment, installation, and any additional components like batteries. Our team can provide you with pricing options and guide you in selecting a system size that aligns with your budget and financial goals.
  • What Is Off Peak Charging?
    Buying cheap electricity at night and storing it in your battery, also known as time-of-use or off-peak charging, can be a cost-effective strategy to optimize your energy consumption and maximize the benefits of your battery storage system. Here's how it works: Time-of-Use Pricing: Many electricity providers offer time-of-use pricing plans where the cost of electricity varies throughout the day. Typically, electricity rates are lower during off-peak hours, such as at night or during weekends. Off-Peak Charging: With a battery storage system, you can take advantage of these lower off-peak electricity rates by charging your battery during those times. This means you can store the cheaper electricity in your battery to use later when electricity prices are higher or during times when your energy demand is high. Battery Management System (BMS): Your battery storage system should have a built-in Battery Management System that controls the charging and discharging processes. The BMS can be programmed to initiate charging during off-peak hours and prioritize the use of stored electricity when prices are higher or when your energy demand exceeds the solar generation capacity. Energy Management System: An energy management system can further enhance the optimization of your battery usage. It can monitor electricity prices, solar generation, and your energy consumption patterns to intelligently control when to charge the battery and when to discharge it, ensuring that you make the most of the cheaper off-peak electricity.
  • Off Peak Charging Benefits
    Cost Savings: By charging your battery during off-peak hours when electricity prices are lower, you can reduce your overall energy costs. This can result in significant savings on your electricity bills over time. Energy Independence: Storing cheaper electricity in your battery allows you to become less reliant on the grid during peak hours when prices are higher. It increases your energy independence and flexibility to use stored energy when it is most advantageous for you. Load Shifting: Off-peak charging and battery storage enable load shifting, where you can shift your energy consumption to times when electricity rates are lower. This can help you manage your energy usage effectively and potentially avoid peak demand charges. Environmental Benefits: Utilizing cheaper electricity during off-peak hours reduces the need for electricity generated from fossil fuels during peak periods. By maximizing your use of stored energy, you contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable energy system.
