There’s a reason why Australia is called the sunburnt country. The amount of sunlight we receive gives us an incredible opportunity to harness it and turn it into renewable energy. A newly installed solar panel can produce free electricity for up to 25 years. A full return on investment is usually seen within 2 to 3 years, with continued electricity bill savings for the next two decades.
It’s conventionally recommended to install solar panels on the northern side of your roof. However, if that’s not possible, we can still install panels on your shed, verandah, or anywhere else after a thorough inspection.
A solar inverter converts the electricity collected from the solar system from direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC). The electricity is first utilised by the house, and whatever is leftover is paid back to the grid at a rate determined by your local Electricity retailer FIT (feed in tariff).
Depends entirely on your total usage and how efficiently you use the electricity generated. Our solar experts and CEC accredited installer will provide you a solar system solution tailor-made for your usage, allowing you to save up to 80% on your electricity bills.
Solar systems harness sunlight and work exclusively during the day. The total estimated solar energy produced can be used during the day and whatever is left unused is fed back into the grid, which eventually gets credited back to your electricity bill. Batteries are needed to store solar power. To know about which battery fits your building best, feel free to contact our solar experts.
The amount of sunlight directly dictates the performance of the solar system. If your usage exceeds the electricity generated by the system on a cloudy day, the power will be generated directly from the grid.
Our panels come with a warranty of 25 years and the inverter comes with a warranty of 5 years, which can be extended to 10 years as well. Over and above, Solar Power Nation exclusively provides a 10 Year Installation and Workmanship Warranty.
Yes, you can add to your panels on your solar system. However, it all depends on the size of your inverter. If the size of your solar system can’t accommodate additional panels, you can always purchase a new solar system with increased panels.

It is not necessary to pay the entire amount upfront. A more cost-effective payment procedure would be to spread the cost over time. That way, the savings you make can offset your expenses. In some cases, the savings generated can even be greater than the monthly paying system.
Not on its own. However, you could install a smart battery along with solar panels that can enable you to use free green power even at night.
There are various green initiatives taken up by the government. These vary region to region and are subject to eligibility. To find out what savings you could be eligible for, book a call with our expert team today.
