Latest solar power system for your home | Brisbane

With ever increasing electricity costs, solar power systems have become an inevitable choice for both residential and commercial properties. By installing solar power system at your home, office or shed, you are not only taking a step towards reducing your electricity costs but you are also promoting green energy and thereby contributing towards controlling the alarming pollution levels.

Suitable solar power system for you

As we have already identified a suitable solar power system for your home which ranges from 5kW solar power system for a small family, 6.6kW solar power system for a medium family to 10kW solar power system for a large family. A typical 20kW solar power system for a small commercial unit, 30kW solar power system for a medium and 50kW solar power system for a large commercial unit are installed to get the maximum benefit of solar power systems. If you have not done this exercise yet, talk to our solar experts on 1300 650 747 to discuss and understand your requirement and design a tailor-made solar power system for you based on your needs. Alternately, you can also use our Solar Calculator to identify a suitable system for you.
Solar Panels Brisbane
Now, once you have identified a suitable solar power system for your home, office or shed, the next important step is to identify the brand of solar panels and solar inverters. There are variety of solar panel and solar inverter brands available in the market to choose from. Price of the solar power system depends on the solar panels or solar inverter brand you select, therefore, the first step for you is to allocate a budget and then decide the best solar panel and inverter brands you get within your budget. Our solar experts can assist you in selecting the best solar panels and inverters within your budget and design a tailor-made solar power system best suitable for your needs.
Whilst deciding the solar panel brands and inverter, the other important factor is to select the latest product available in the market. For example, during the initial days of solar power system installations in Brisbane, the solar panels and inverters offered were quite different from what is available in the market. Thanks to the advancement in technology and other factors like exchange of technologies between countries and making the world a small place. If we have to compare the wattage capacity of solar panels offered around 5 years ago, a typical 5kW solar power system in Brisbane would comprise of 20 solar panels of 250-watt each whereas currently these are replaced with 15 solar panels of 330w each. Again, the solar panels being currently offered comes with so many technologically advanced features like half-cell, double glass etc. which helps in maximising solar power generation utilising the same or less amount of space covered on your roof. Which means more solar power with lesser amount of roof space.
If we have to compare with earlier years, nowadays, the solar inverters are also designed in a way that if you install a 6.6kW solar power system in Brisbane, a typical 5kW solar inverter is good enough to run 20 solar panels of 330-watt, making it a 6.6kW solar power system for your home in Brisbane. Similarly, a 10kW solar power system in Brisbane would comprise of 40 solar panels of 330-watt each, a typical 10kW solar inverter is good enough to run 40 solar panels of 330-watt, making it a 13.2kW solar power system. Thanks to technology again.

Polycrystalline vs Monocrystalline solar panels

Talking about the major technology change in solar panels, we can’t overlook the fact that the mainly monocrystalline solar panels are being offered currently as against polycrystalline solar panels few years ago. Polycrystalline solar panels are becoming outdated day by day. Both polycrystalline and monocrystalline solar panels perform the same function of capturing the energy from the sun and converting it into electricity, however there are key differences between these two. The main advantages of monocrystalline solar panels are efficiency and sleeker aesthetics whereas polycrystalline solar panels are lower in efficiency and have lesser aesthetic value as compared to monocrystalline solar panels. Having said that, polycrystalline solar panels are still a less expensive option as compared to monocrystalline solar panels. Usually, if you have a lot of roof space available for solar panel system installation, polycrystalline solar panels prove to be a less expensive option. Whereas, if you have space constraint on your roof, monocrystalline solar panel does the trick to get the same amount of solar power with a lesser space.
