General Solar Power FAQs - 5

What size system will I need to run my home?
 That entirely depends on your energy usage and your geographical location. A 1.5 kW system is currently the "entry point" for grid connect and attracts the most rebate .It will cover between 16 and 25% of the energy consumption of a medium household. A 4 kW system will cover 100% of the energy consumption of a medium energy use household. Use our solar power system builder to calculate your energy needs.
  Any size grid connect solar power system will reduce your yearly power consumption and your power bill. Naturally, the bigger the system, the bigger the benefit.
  To make the most of solar power, the key is to implement simple energy efficiency strategies. It is easy to conserve energy by using appropriate lighting and efficient appliances. Running high power appliances such as electric bar heaters, electric hot water systems and air conditioners etc. is really not economical.
 Instead of considering a very large solar system it is advisable to invest in energy efficient heaters, solar hot water and design features such as strategically placed vents or insulation to avoid heat entering the house in the first place. In summary - all your energy can be supplied by solar power and your budget and daily energy usage will determine the size of your solar power system.

Is my building suitable for a solar power system?
 Several aspects will need to be evaluated to determine if your home is a good solar site, such as orientation, space available, shadows on the space available and your current electricity usage. The best site will be one with adequate north-facing roofs that have no shade. Variations on that will cut into the productivity of the system.

How long will my grid connect solar power system last?
 Solar modules have been tested in the field showing small reductions in power output after 20 years, mostly because the glass surface becomes a bit dull and reflects more light. All our solar panels carry an output warranty of 25 years. There are solar panels delivering power in Australia today that were installed more that 30 years ago. The electronic components such as inverters, being the most sensitive, will last 10 -15 years. Learn more about the components Mildura Sunray Solar uses in grid connect systems.
