How do I know what size solar system is suitable for my home?

We will use our decade of experience to make sure you have a solar system that suits your needs and maximises your savings. There is no complicated discounts or jargon needed. That means less time worrying about your electricity bill.

How does a solar system work?

The photovoltaic panels (PV) produce high voltage direct current (DC) that is turned into standard household 240V alternating current (AC) by the inverter. Each kW of panels installed in South East Queensland produces approximately 4.2kWh of power per day on average. This is because there are 4.2 sun hours when the installed panels are operating at their highest output. Even though there are many more hours of sunlight, the main operating state occurs between 10 am and 3 pm. 

The important aspect of this from your perspective is the benefit of the system’s output. Energy produced from your solar system that you use immediately in the house will reduce your bill by the amount that it would cost to buy the electricity from your provider. Solar electricity generated over and above the amount your household uses is exported into the grid and you receive a feed in tariff from LPE.

What's the short and sweet version of that?

It’s a bit complicated, so here’s the short and sweet version if you just want a general idea.

We’ll install solar panels that store and convert energy from the sun into usable household energy for your home. These panels make the most energy when the sun is the strongest, usually in the middle of the day. It benefits you because when you use solar, you’re making your own electricity instead of buying it from your provider. If you make more than you use, your provider will send the electricity into the grid and give you a tariff in exchange!

It’s a pretty sweet deal if you ask us.
