Guide to investing in Solar Energy

    Solar installation is becoming more in-demand in Adelaide because of the unstoppable increase in electricity costs. With a solar system, property owners can lessen their bills and produce environmentally friendly energy.

    According to solar experts, there are price ranges for high-quality solar panels. Below are the costs:

    • 3kW systems cost around $3,500 to $5,000
    • 5kW systems are estimated at $4,500 to $8,000
    • 6kW systems are priced from $5,000 to $9,000
    • 10kW systems range from $8,000 to $12,000

    These prices include everything from the typical incentives to rebates. If you’re aiming for the top of the line components, you have to consider the prices at the higher end of the ranges specified above. Today, we’re going to look at the expert tips on how to choose the ideal panels for your system.

    Determine the Number of Solar Panels You Require

    According to solar system installers in Adelaide, the solar system’s power output is more important than the size and number of panels. If the nominal power rating and power output are high, you will only need a few panels. This is because the solar system will already be generating enough power.

    For property owners with wider roof space, the way to save money is to purchase cheaper, low-powered solar panels. The area covered by a solar panel is mostly 1.6 square metres. However, this is not a uniform measurement. You’ll find ones in different lengths, widths, and power output.

    Solar Panel Size

    When you work with solar panel installation experts in Adelaide, they’ll initially determine how much electricity your property needs. As a general rule, homes with regular consumption use 20kWh of energy a day. You may opt to use a 5kW solar system because it can already meet the daytime requirements of a home. But since these panels are cheap, consider placing the biggest system that your roof can handle and that you can afford.

    Excess electricity will just return to the grid. As a result, you can get some money back through feed-in tariffs. Charging a home storage battery is also possible. For new solar systems, 6.6kW is generally recommended. If the property needs a bigger system, going with 9 to 10kW is ideal. Larger systems typically come with a battery.

    How to Look for High-Quality Solar Panels

    Remember that CEC-accredited solar panels and inverters are not necessarily high quality. These components might have undergone modifications when they entered the market. This causes a drop in quality. The best solution is to purchase only the most established panel brands in Australia. Do your research to find out which companies have been operating in Australia for a long time.

    Purchasing solar components from major retailers is highly recommended. In Australia, the energy sector has strict policies that can hold solar providers accountable. Our laws allow you to have recourse in case there are problems with your system. When it comes to installing quality solar systems, you can rely on our experts at Class A Energy Solutions.

    Monitor the Performance

    By looking at the solar panels from the outside, you can tell how good they are. Solar panels, on the other hand, can only be evaluated on a day-to-day basis. As a result, keep track of how much energy they produce daily to keep your system in good shape. Using the best solar panels in Adelaide also allows you to track how much you are helping the environment.

    Cover the Repair Costs with a Warranty

    Repairs and replacements of solar panels are uncommon. Solar panels, in general, require minimal upkeep. You can save money on repairs by having an annual inspection and regular cleaning. You can contact your installer, and have it repaired if you need repairs or notice a fault in the system or function. The product warranty is for a minimum of 10 years, and the performance warranty is for a minimum of 25 years. Make use of the warranty to cover the costs of repairs.

    Keep your solar panels properly maintained by following the above tips. Learn more about our high-quality panels and expert services by contacting us.
