Home solar — electricity for less

Over the years, the popularity of solar panels for homes has exploded around the country, including Queensland, as the benefits of home solar have become widely known. Solar systems for homes drastically reduce conventional electricity use, thus lowering the cost of power bills.

In recent years, more and more homes and businesses have been weaning themselves away from their dependence on electricity grids powered by fossil-fuel sources. And while the motive for going solar may seem purely financial, this move towards the use of sustainable and renewable energy is also fuelled by the need to reduce carbon emissions to protect our world.

With the demand for solar for homes increasing at a remarkable rate, we have helped many Queenslanders install a home solar system in their house or rental property. If you live in Queensland and are in the market for a home solar system, Green Energy Technologies has the perfect solution to your need for home solar panels.

Do you really save money with home solar panels?

Of course! Using home solar panels helps you save money right away, with your savings increasing as soon as you have recouped the installation cost. You’ll find more money in your pocket as your power bills go down by having reduced your grid-provided energy consumption.

Moreover, having an energy-efficient home or a ready home solar system can increase the value of your property should you decide to sell it someday. It also makes your property more appealing if you are currently renting it.

What is the most efficient solar power system for home use?

When it comes to solar panels for homes, there are three main types, namely thin film, polycrystalline and monocrystalline.

Of the three, monocrystalline solar panels have the highest efficiency rating of around 15% to 20% to as high as 24.4%. Compared with other panels, they produce the highest power outputs whilst requiring the least amount of space. Aside from this, monocrystalline solar panels have a long functional lifespan and are moderately priced. This makes them a very popular choice among homeowners and the reason why we recommend them.

Do you still pay for electricity with solar panels?

Depending on the size of your home solar system and your habits, you may still receive a small electricity bill. Although solar energy is free and available all year long, the capacity of your system to produce the energy you need on a daily basis will determine how much you’ll still owe the power company. You can also reduce the amount of grid-sourced electricity you require by adjusting your habits and running appliances that consume a lot of electricity when your home solar system is producing the maximum amount of converted electricity.

Moreover, if you produce more electricity than you need, it gets exported onto the energy grid as you are selling the excess back to your energy company. This will be counted in your net meter, and you’ll be paid a feed-in tariff for every kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity you export into the grid, further lowering your electricity bill.
