Western Australia – Start Saving NOW with Solar Energy

With electricity bills continuing to increase the strain on the pockets of Western Australia’s property owners, the only solution, and perhaps the best one, is to turn to solar energy.

Federal Solar Rebate/Incentive

To help make the cost of a solar power system more affordable, the Federal Government came up with the Renewable Energy Target scheme (RET).

NOTE: It is possible for incentives to be reduced as the RET is under revision. To avail the lowest subsidy, place your order today.

Western Australia solar feed in tariff:

You are paid 8 cents for whatever power you can produce in surplus of 1000 watts per hour which is capable of being reproduced by the grid. This rate varies from region to region and town to town.

Save in the long run, invest in solar

The use of solar power in Western Australia is very rewarding for homeowners as our Australian Solar Index shows – 18.8% on the internal rate of return per system in Perth.

How solar panels work?

Solar energy can be converted to electric energy using photovoltaic cells and panels. A photovoltaic cell is a silicon cell that captures the incident radiation and converts it into electric energy. A solar panel is an array of such cells. Solar panels are able to produce up to 450 watts of DC electric energy. The lifetime of such modules is very good and all of these products can withstand environmental changes such as rain, snow, wind etc. for about 10 years with an amazing 90% efficiency and 80% efficiency thereafter. The array can be installed at any place that receives ample sunshine throughout the year. Usually these are installed on rooftops as it receives the largest amount of solar electricity but in some special cases these may be installed somewhere else. This solar energy can be stored in inverters and can be used during nighttime. For an average home a set of 6 to 8 panels can meet the basic energy requirements.

You can also get solar hot water systems installed on your roof, they are usually hybrid systems that are paired with electric or gas energy generation in order to maintain heating in non-daylight hours.
