Australia has one of the highest levels of sunshine on the planet, so it’s not surprising that the country also has the highest level of rooftop solar panel adoption in the world due to its sunny conditions. Currently, over three million solar systems have been installed on homes and businesses across the country, making it the fastest-growing form of renewable energy.
So many people in Newcastle are enjoying solar energy’s proven ability to reduce their energy bills, especially at a time when the costs keep going up. The added benefit is their reduced carbon emissions as well which is important to some people who are conscious of their outputs and using renewable energy sources in the region.
Investing in solar for your home or business is a big decision, and it’s hard to know who you can trust – especially as many solar companies have sprung up suddenly to take advantage of the boom in this industry. Many will then disappear just as quickly when demand slows down.
What we have seen at Solahart is that this has left many unwary customers with no service, worthless warranties and in some cases, systems that don’t function very well at all. That’s why it pays to shop around and choose a company with a long-term track record like Solahart who has been operating for nearly 70 years.
The simple fact is, the cost of installing a solar power system in the Newcastle region will vary greatly depending on many different factors including;
Upgrading to a solar hot water system when installing solar panels on your house at the same time can be a good decision to make because;
There are numerous differences, between low cost solar panels and premium quality solar panels. They include:
Solahart Silhouette solar panels (our premium panel) include a 25 year product warranty and 30 year performance warranty.
Solahart SunCell Solar Panels (our cheaper panel) include a 15 year product warranty and 20 year performance warranty
If you’re considering installing a solar power system at your home or business in Newcastle, then even we suggest you obtain quotes from multiple installers, including Solahart. What we know is that your research can not only make sure you are getting great value, but you get to ‘feel’ how each company handles themselves.
You will quickly see there are a lot of installers that don’t have a long history in the industry.
Solahart has built itself on our pioneering expertise in solar hot water, so now we sell complete home solar solutions with a full suite of smart products that can be operated via your smartphone that are designed to soak up and store energy from the sun. This means that Solahart is a genuine one-stop solar shop in Newcastle that can sell & install solar power, solar hot water, heat pumps, battery storage, and Australia’s first solar-smart electric water heater, Solahart PowerStore®.
We send one of our team members out to meet you, view your site & spend some time to understand your needs. This is part of our free on-site solar assessment that we offer which is obligation free. Once we complete this assessment we provide a written quotation with your chosen options.
You can always start with a single component and build as your needs change, or install a total connected system combining solar power, hot water and energy storage linked together with a Solahart Energy Management Unit (EMU). This EMU smart hub allows you to manage how you use your energy and your appliances to help minimise the power you draw from the grid and maximise your solar savings.
The cost of upgrading your system will be slightly more than doing it all together because of the extra labour costs involved in multiple site visits. If you don’t know where to start, don’t worry. We will guide you through the process and plan a custom design system that is suitable to your physical structure, your requirements and budget.
This is why Solahart Newcastle provides a free on-site solar assessment.
We can help you figure out what will make more sense and how to plan your solar power system upgrade.
Once we have configured your solar system we can then manage the entire installation process with our team of professional installers. That’s right, we don’t use contractors, so not only do we provide you the costs, the range of products needed but then have the team of people that we manage to complete the installation for you. Our team are also accredited by the Clean Energy Council (CEC).
So, as you can see the cost to install solar does vary and it is because there are so many products, configurations and ways of setting up a system. All Solahart systems are designed and built to last year after year in the harshest Australian conditions. This is because we rigorously test all its products to ensure their durability and efficiency.
It’s this relentless focus on quality that allows us to back its products with such comprehensive warranties. Solahart’s Silhouette solar panels, for example, come with a Solahart 25-year Australian product warranty. So, if you’re looking to join the millions of smart Aussies who have made the switch to solar, make sure you do your homework first to understand the costs, as not all solar is the same and no other solar company has a track record like Solahart.
