Power Saving Centre Canberra offers smart and customised solar power systems for homes and businesses in Canberra and the surrounding NSW regions.
Solar power is a highly cost-effective way to invest in the future of clean energy and sustainable living. With the sun providing an abundant source of renewable energy and innovative advances in eco-technology, solar power provides an opportunity to reduce greenhouse emissions and lower energy bills. Each megawatt-hour (MWh) of electricity generated from solar power reduces greenhouse gas emissions by one tonne.
The federal government offers a Small-Scale Technology Certificates (STC) rebate for solar power systems. Read more about the STC rebate here.
Power Saving Centre Canberra provides a range of solar power solutions, including Grid-Connected, Off-Grid, Hybrid-Ready and Hybrid Solar Systems.
Grid-Connected Solar Power Systems
The most common type of solar power systems are grid-connected systems, which can be installed on both domestic and commercial buildings. Grid-connected solar systems harness energy from the sun, which is used locally, then sold back to the grid.
Off-Grid (Stand-Alone) Solar Power Systems
As the name suggests, off-grid solar power systems are not connected to the standard electricity grid. As such, off-grid solar systems require energy storage in the form of batteries to ensure a useable energy supply outside of daylight hours.
Hybrid-Ready Solar Power Systems
Hybrid-ready solar power systems are the same as grid-connected solar systems, however they possess the potential to be upgraded to a hybrid solar system at a later date. By installing a hybrid inverter, customers with hybrid-ready solar systems can continue to export their excess electricity to the grid until they are ready to upgrade to battery storage.
Hybrid Solar Power Systems
Hybrid solar power systems combine grid-connected solar systems with battery storage. The addition of batteries to a solar system allows customers to minimise the energy that is exported to the grid and instead store it on site for later use.
