Dave from Hinton got Solahart to install a solar power system that included Solahart Silhouette solar panels.

Their power bills were so high but they wanted to ensure they could maintain their familie’s lifestyle & enjoy all of their creature comforts.

In the video below Dave talks about his experience using Solahart to help assess his energy needs, create a recommended solution & install a new system that now means they rarely see another electricity bill.

Reviews from home owners who saved money using solar

Listen to how Dave saved money on his power bill

Having solar panels on your home has now become the norm & they are hard to miss with so many installed across the Newcastle region & over three million on homes around Australia. The reason is pretty simple, Australia has more sunshine per square metre than any other continent in the world¹, which makes getting a system installed on a property a very easy choice because of the energy efficiencies it can provide.

With the cost of living growing every year it is little surprise to find so many people looking for ways to reduce their bills. Australia is actually ranked 16th in the world as of September 2020, higher than the US or UK. That’s the other reason so many people are looking for cheaper ways to live because taking power from the grid can be extremely expensive.

For a typical family with a 6kW solar power system they could enjoy savings of up to $1,500 on their annual energy bills. Have a look at our Solahart Solar Index Report for the details. More importantly they can reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by up to seven tonnes per year, making a significant difference to the planet.³ In addition, research by Solar Citizens found that on average, households with solar power have bills that are approximately 20 per cent lower than households without.⁴

The savings don’t end there though, because a lot of the energy produced by solar power panels is sent back to the grid when it’s generated at times you are not using it. Adding a home battery storage to a solar power system can store electricity generated by solar panels for use later on. You can use excess solar power when the sun isn’t shining instead of sending it back to the grid, including at night or when utility rates are more expensive. This can help you save money in different ways.

Lastly our unique Solahart PowerStore, is Australia’s first solar-smart electric water heater that can also let you convert excess solar power into hot water to save money that way. If you replace an electric hot water header on an off-peak tariff with a PowerStore the combined solar power and Solahart PowerStore systems could save you up to $1,760 per year on your energy bills.

  3. Greenhouse Gas Emissions savings of up to 1.6 to 2.7 tonnes shown is based on Australian Government approved TRNSYS simulation modelling of a Solahart 302L and using a medium load in Zone 3 and the Scope 2 and 3 electricity emissions factors for purchased electricity by end-users published in the 2018 July edition of the National Greenhouse Accounts Factors handbook, and apply when replacing an electric water heater. Any savings will vary depending upon your location, type of Solahart system installed, orientation and inclination of the solar collectors, type of water heater being replaced, and hot water consumption.
