How much Solahart Newcastle can save you?
Solahart was one of the first companies in the world to recognise the value of the sun’s free energy.
We pioneered solar water heating in Australia in 1953. Since then we have installed over 1 million systems in over 70 countries and have become a world leader in the field of solar energy.
Today our solar power PV systems are among the most efficient in the world, offering big energy savings to homeowners who switch to solar panels and energy free from the sun.
Solar power can help you dramatically reduce the running costs of your home or business. To find out how much money you can save with solar power, there are a number of factors that need to be considered.
- Your average energy consumption
- Usage patterns
- Your feed-in tariff rate
- The size of the solar power system you install
- Where you live
- The orientation of your roof and any potential shading
Your average energy consumption – The back page of your electricity bill is the best place to find information on your electricity usage and will appear as a kilowatt hour (kWh) reading. This reading will give a good indication to your Solahart Newcastle expert on what size system is right for you.
Usage patterns – All solar power systems generate electricity during daylight hours, and any unused electricity is sent back to the grid of your electricity provider who provides you with a feed-in tariff or credit. These credits can be used to offset your electricity costs, however in most instances it is more beneficial to ensure you are using the power you generate rather than sending it back to the grid.
Your feed-in tariff rate – The credit or tariff rate provided by your electricity provider will impact your offset cost generation. We recommend that you do your research and shop around for both your feed -in tariff and electricity rates to ensure you are getting the most out of your system.
The size of your system – The size of your system, quality of the equipment and number of panels can vary significantly and not all systems are made the same. We recommend only the best quality products at a size that suits your property, usage and needs.
Where you live – Your geographic location will influence the energy production of your solar power system and ultimately, how much you can save.
The orientation of your roof and any potential shading – Your roof orientation, surrounding trees or buildings that shade your property can all affect the efficiency of your system. Let our experts plan a system for you to get optimum results.
