HOW SOLAR WORKS?

While ever there is light shining on the solar panels, the solar cells generate DC electricity. The grid connect inverter converts the DC electricity produced by the solar panels into 240V AC electricity, which can then be used by any load connected to the electricity meter on the property that the solar is connected too.

If a grid connect system is producing more power than is being consumed, the excess power is fed into the mains power grid via the solar compatible meter. Most electricity companies will meter the electricity fed into the grid by your system and provide a credit on your bill.

When the solar cells are not producing power, for example at night, your power is supplied by the mains power grid as usual. The energy retailer charges your contract rate for the power used as usual.

1. Solar panels – absorb energy from the sun and turn it into DC current.

2. Inverter – Converts DC current into AC current so power can be utitlised by consumer or fed back into the supply grid.

3. Main Switchboard – The distribution point of electricity into your home. Contains solar compatible meter to either utilise or feed power back to the grid.

4. Supply Meter – Any electricity consumed or sent back into the grid from the solar system will be registered via the meter

5. Utility Grid – Supplies electricity to your home when you exceed the amount of power being produced by your solar system

WHY GO SOLAR?

ARE YOU TIRED OF OPENING YOUR ELECTRICITY BILLS AND FINDING THE PRICE HAS INCREASED AGAIN? 

Below are several great reasons as to why going solar will benefit you at home and work:-

  • Reduce energy costs: A solar PV system designed correctly will reduce your reliance on grid-fed power, which in turn results in lowered energy costs. For every kWh your solar system generates, that’s a potential kWh you don’t have to buy from the grid meaning savings for you.

     

  • Rebates: Thanks to the Government solar incentives, the cost to the customer is greatly reduced. For every kWh that is fed back to the grid, most energy providers will give you a rebate for each kWh which will be seen as a credit on your electricity bill.

     

  • Rising electricity prices: The rising cost of electricity continues and shows no sign of slowing. An Avid Energy Services Residential/Commercial solar system will offset your home/business electricity bill against these rising costs.

     

  • Affordability of Commercial Solar: As the cost of solar has come down, commercial PV has become the most economically sound solar product due to the economy of scale with each project. It is not uncommon for payback periods to be as low as 3-4 years.

     

  • Sustainability: A solar PV system can boost your public profile, demonstrating your environmental credentials and you commitment to clean green energy for many years to come – your solar investment will not only reduce your operating expenses but also eliminate tonnes of CO2 emissions.

     

  • Ideal for businesses: Solar energy is ideally aligned with the peak energy requirements for many Australia businesses, as the free energy produced falls within the hours of 9am to 5pm. Australia has some of the bluest skies in the world along with some of the highest peak sunlight hours. Take advantage today of free energy.
