Solar Panel Installations to full Solar Power Systems
What is solar power? Solar Photovoltaic (PV) panels are being installed on the roofs of homes and businesses Australia wide to capture the sun’s energy, allowing us to cleanly and quietly generate electricity. The sun’s energy is converted into solar power by transferring sunlight photo energy into electricity. This conversion takes place within the cells of specially fabricated semi-conductor crystals. Therefore, the system is particularly efficient on hot, sunny days when our electricity demand is highest, due to the increased use of air conditioners.
Most importantly, solar energy is generated at the point of use; this means there’s no need to transfer the energy for long distances through expensive infrastructure.

Greenhouse gas savings with solar power
Solar power is a zero emission electricity source: one megawatt hour of solar energy used, avoids approximately one tonne of CO2.
Solar Power Systems
Solar power systems are installed on more than 800 000 rooftops across Australia! At the end of November, 2012, the total solar energy capacity installed across the nation totalled more than 2.144 gigawatts. The current installed capacity represents 3.2% of all current generation capacity.
If the federal government is to continue providing incentives in the form of rebates, we can be assured of the continued growth of Australia’s solar energy industry. In addition, the Clean Energy Council is actively advocating for solar feed-in tariffs that can provide an income to users by selling excess electricity back to the grid.
Why go solar?
As home owners, more and more of us are converting to solar power. Below is an outline of the three most important reasons to convert:
- Financial Benefits: The key financial benefits of using solar energy can be noticed in the reduction of utility payments as you use your solar power systems for electricity, heating, cooling and lighting. In addition, when you reduce your home’s operating costs, you’re also increasing the value of your home.
- Environmental Impact: Many of us are choosing solar energy because of the positive impact it will have on the environment. Unlike fossil fuels, solar energy doesn't produce harmful pollutants held responsible for increasing the greenhouse effect which contributes to global warming. Solar, Brisbane, is a clean and sustainable source of energy and you can be part of the solution by converting to solar power.
- Energy Independence: By using solar power, Brisbane, you will reduce your dependence on the utility companies. You’ll no longer need to have electricity delivered to your home as you will be producing your own solar energy. In a nutshell, you will finally be free from the ever increasing utility bills.
