Solar Batteries

A rechargeable solar battery stores the ‘excess’ electricity generated from a panel array, boosting energy capacity and making power available for use at night time or on cloudy days.

Recent design improvements and price drops in lithium-ion batteries have made solar storage more viable than ever before.

Assess your energy needs before investing in a battery or batteries. There’s no point buying more capacity than you can use — surplus electricity should instead be fed into the grid for a profit.

If all the appliances in your home are electrical, they can be powered by solar.

Battery storage systems are a serious safety risk if incorrectly installed and may have implications for insurance coverage, so when choosing a solar solution make sure to use a reputable installer.

Solar Maintenance

A quality solar installation is designed and built to be hardy, but it is important to remember that it is still an electrical system that sits exposed to the elements all year round. Electricity can be dangerous and all electrical setups need to be maintained to ensure safety. Solar installations are no exception.

Servicing and maintenance are important for catching any potential problems before they pose a fire or electrocution risk. On the plus side, solar maintenance checks also include the cleaning of your panels and confirming your system is running optimally.

Rust, moisture seepage, vermin and harsh sunlight are the primary things that can cause damage to the electrics in a solar installation. Just like running a car, regular servicing addresses problems before they become expensive or dangerous.

Included in a solar maintenance check:

  • Clear any debris from the solar panels and wash to remove dust and dirt; this is particularly important on flat solar panel installations
  • Check the inverter and DC isolator switch for water damage and safe operation
  • Check the system’s electrical cabling and circuitry for potential damage from weathering or rodent activity
  • Check roof mountings for signs of corrosion or rust
  • Checking that access to the isolator switches has not been impeded and making sure the emergency procedures for shutdown and isolation are clearly displayed
  • Confirm the system's output is delivering in line with expectations for the size, age, location, and positioning of the panels
  • A written report on the status and health of the solar installation

Solar Panels

When it comes to choosing solar panels for your home or business property, it is important to consider market leading brands that offer the most energy efficient solutions for your solar power requirements. With the lifespan and warranties of solar panels being paramount, it is crucial to select the solar panels best suited for your roof space.

Good quality solar panels will not only lower your electricity bills but also increase the value of your house. By opting for solar PV, you can benefit from the standard 10 year product warranty for solar panels in Australia.

Our team is here to advise and help you decide which solar panels are right for your property, ensuring you make a sustainable and cost effective investment for the future.

Fronius & Enphase Solar Inverters

Solar Inverters

Solar inverters are an essential component of a solar photovoltaic (PV) system. They are what converts the direct current (DC) output of solar panels (the energy collected from the sun) into alternating current (AC) electricity, which is what is used by the appliances in your home.

Inverters can be monitored via a computer program or device app to check energy generation, consumption and correct operation of the system.

Several types of inverters are suitable for home systems.

Commercial Solar Systems

When it comes to implementing commercial solar systems for your business, it is crucial to consider the unique requirements and challenges that come with larger installations. Commercial properties typically have more space for solar panels, allowing for larger scale systems to be installed. However, determining the correct size for your business's needs can be a complex process.

Our team of experienced solar technicians can help assess your energy usage and design a system that is tailored to your specific requirements. Additionally, we can assist with the process of connecting your solar system to the grid and obtaining the necessary approvals from the network.

As reputable commercial solar installers, we also offer maintenance services to ensure that your system is operating at peak efficiency. From arranging regular cleaning of solar panels to scheduling routine maintenance checks, we are here to support your business in harnessing the power of solar energy for a sustainable future and reduce your power bills.

Cost to Install a Solar System

The cost of installing solar solutions is coming down while at the same time the efficiency of the technology is always improving. In most cases, a solar solution installed today will have paid off your initial investment in about five to six years, through savings in power bills.

As electric vehicles become more common on the streets, generating free electricity from a solar system in your home to charge your car could become an added benefit in the future. Of course both of these steps help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide a sustainable energy source for the future.

Important Considerations When Deciding To Install Solar

Choosing a quality system that will stand the test of time and the Australian climate are obvious goals when choosing to install solar, but they are by no means the only considerations. Here are our top tips for understanding the investment you are making and helping you make the best choice for your situation:

A basic solar system consists of: solar panels; an inverter or optimiser to convert the solar energy from DC to 240V AC electricity; a roof mounting system and electrical accessories including circuit breakers and wires. With all of these components required to work together for the solar solution to work, it is important to make sure all elements are of equal quality - one less robust component will reduce the efficiency and longevity of the entire system.

Electricity Meter Upgrades for New Solar Installations

Installing a new solar system often requires an electricity meter upgrade. This ensures your meter can accurately measure the electricity your system generates and feeds back into the grid. Our team at Innovate Energy will handle the entire process for you, coordinating with your energy provider to ensure a smooth and hassle free meter upgrade. We'll take care of all the technical details, so you can focus on enjoying the benefits of your new solar system.
