Residential Solar PV
What should I expect out of my solar system?
In an ideal world all households will be carbon neutral and demands on the world's oil resources come to a standstill.
As more households take solar energy production on board the 'ideal' might become a reality in this lifetime.
The step towards energy empowerment for home owners has far reaching benefits that extend beyond environmental consciousness.
By choosing energy from one of our greatest natural resources consumers can expect huge savings on their daily consumption.
Federal Government rebates have made the installation of a 1.5 kilowatt solar system a popular choice for home owners in Australia.
The average Australian home uses about 18 to 22 units of electrical energy everyday. These units are referred to as kilowatt hours (kWh).
Energy consumptions may vary across the states, as some homes may be equipped with gas for use in cooking and heating while other homes may use electric water heating, swimming pools and air conditioning, which all place extra demands on energy levels.
Televisions, computers, halogen down lights and other electrical appliances also add to the demand.
A 1.5 kWp solar system may produce about half the daily electricity for a home that consumes about 18 kWh a day.
An energy-efficient home may use only half the power of an average household (around seven to 10kWh/day), so a 2kW solar system could produce most of the daily requirements making it a carbon neutral home.
If households combine solar energy systems with energy-efficient appliances and practices around the home it's quite possible they can slash their electricity bill and earn money from the excess power they have created.
