Power Your Home with Clean Energy

By choosing our residential solar solutions, you’ll enjoy numerous benefits as listed.

Slash your reliance on traditional grid energy and enjoy lower electricity bills.

Help protect the environment by reducing your carbon footprint and reliance on fossil fuels.

Gain control over your energy needs and safeguard against rising energy costs.

Solar feed-in tariffs are incentives offered by some state and territory governments that allow solar system owners to sell excess electricity they generate back to the grid.

Solar installations add value to your home and make it more attractive to potential buyers.


A residential solar system harnesses sunlight through solar panels mounted on the roof. These panels convert sunlight into DC (direct current) electricity. The DC electricity is then converted to AC (alternating current) by an inverter, making it compatible with household appliances. Excess energy can be stored in batteries or exported to the grid.

The cost of a residential solar system depends on various factors, such as the system size, type of panels, installation complexity, and location. On average, a 5kW solar system may cost between $5,000 to $10,000 before rebates and incentives.

Installing a solar system offers several benefits, including reduced electricity bills, lower reliance on the grid, potential government incentives, reduced carbon footprint, and increased property value.

Solar panels can still generate electricity on cloudy days, although their output will be lower than on sunny days. They can even generate some power during light rain, but heavy rain may significantly reduce production.

The number of panels required depends on your energy consumption, location, and available roof space. An energy audit and consultation with a solar expert will help determine the optimal system size for your needs.

Yes, the federal government’s Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES) offers financial incentives in the form of Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs). State and territory governments may also have their own rebate programs.

Yes, many areas in Australia allow homeowners with solar systems to sell excess electricity back to the grid through a process called feed-in tariff (FiT). The FiT rate depends on your location and electricity retailer.

The payback period varies based on the system’s cost, energy savings, and feed-in tariff rates. On average, it takes about 3 to 7 years to recoup the initial investment.

In most cases, residential properties with sufficient roof space and good exposure to sunlight are suitable for solar installation. A site inspection can assess the suitability and potential shading issues.

Batteries are optional but not required for a solar system. They can store excess energy for use during the night or grid outages. If you have access to reliable grid electricity, batteries may not be necessary, but they can enhance energy independence.
