Grid Connect Solar Power Systems
Utilise your roof space and save
Reduce your power bill and CO2 output by utilising your roof space. A grid connected solar power system will supply your household with energy and, if you consume less than you produce, feed the surplus to the electricity grid. Surplus energy is usually metered and credited to your power bill (depending on what State you are in and what retailer you are with). Some electricity providers install a bidirectional meter that runs backwards when you feed electricity to the grid. Compare energy retailers on IPART website. In NSW, feed-in tariffs are "voluntary" and only a few retailers offer them to non Solar-Bonus-Scheme customers.
Grid Feed Solar System
A grid feed solar system essentially consists of solar panels and an inverter. The inverter converts the DC electricity into 240V AC. Inverters are small and can be mounted on the inside or outside of your house. The solar panels are ideally mounted on a north facing roof. You could also mount the panels on a pole or ground frame if your roof is facing 'the wrong way'.

Solar panels and inverters require minimum maintenance as they do not have any moving parts. Rain will usually keep the panels clean. Today's solar panels come with a 25-year performance warranty, but are designed to last 50 years or more. View the components that we use.
System Size and Cost
To determine an appropriate system size you could check your power bill for your average daily consumption. We have comprised 4 system examples to give you an idea what to expect. Prices include solar panels, inverter, basic frame (not tilted), cabling, fuses, labels and labour.
