We work with leading national and international brands to install their latest renewable energy technology.
Solarpro does not only focus on Solar PV systems, but also integrates batteries, EV charging and hot water generation into our proposed solutions. By combining products we can design great technically sophisticated solutions to make dramatic impacts on your electricity bills and carbon footprint.
Solar makes great financial and environmental sense, but what if you could enhance the look of you home as well?
Solarpro is the leading solar company in Sydney that have perfected the installation of roof integrated solar PV. While standard solar relies on racking to sit on top your roof , creating an add on look, roof integrated solar sits within your roof profile, creating a aesthetically pleasing solution, while still delivering all the conventional solar benefits and savings.
Solar storage batteries have come a long way over the past decade that Solarpro has been involved in installing them.
Storing solar power enables you to use your own solar-generated electricity whether there is sunlight or not and, where needed, purchase grid electricity at an off-peak rate. The objective is to get you as near to $0 for electricity as possible. We have options to suit different needs and budgets.
If you look at installing a soalr PV system, then you should investigate the feasibility of installing a home battery and EV charging at the same time. The electric vehicle revolution has started, and how good is it to get free fuel from the sun. SolarPro can help.
The generation of hot water for your household or even room heating can make up to 40% of a household’s energy consumption.
Solarpro can introduce technologies that can use the spare electricity of your solar PV system to heat the water in your home. So instead of exporting the excess PV electricity for a few cents, keep it and use it wisely. A smart hot water system can be made to work like a battery, storing excess energy and reducing your electricity bill.
Anyone who has a pool loves to enjoy a cool dip in the hot summer months on the North Shore, but what about the Spring,, Autumn and Winter seasons? No one enjoys icy cold water, so pool heating is essential if you wants to enjoy your pool all year round.
Solarpro has assisted many home owners from Drummoyne to Gordon and North Sydney to Killara to extend their swimming season with smart technology pool heating. Some of our solutions can see the excess roof top solar electricity utilised to heat your pool, therefore reducing heating costs significantly.
What is a feed-in-tariff?
FiTs income helps in paying back the solar system. They used to be in 2010 , in the early days when Governments wanted to encourage solar, as high a 60cents per kWh in NSW. Using a FiT to stimulate demand, governments not only financially assisted early adopters, but also start driving the industry to make new and efficient systems.
Because FITs are now relatively low, it is often financially more advantageous to use the electricity in the home to heat water, charge an electric vehicle or use it for room heating or cooling. That is the nowadays the smart way to use solar – export less and repurpose it in your home.
Consumers in general can become much more aware of their energy consumption as a result of installing their own solar PV system, and this may lead to a change in behaviour to reduce their energy consumption.
Following a solar installation, the user can apply for a FiT with the relevant energy retailer. They can enter into a contract to receive the FiT for the electricity they export to the grid if their system meets certain criteria. Contracts are only valid as long as the customer stays at the same address and uses the same electricity supplier.
How do I maximise my solar savings?
You first need to understand that solar panels only generate electricity during the day; therefore, if you want to maximise your energy usage, you should try to use as much free electricity as possible while the sun is shining. While the amount of energy required varies from household to household, there are some simple ways to ensure you are getting the most out of your solar investment
Firstly, the number of appliances you can use during the day is defined by the size in kW of solar system you have or the amount of power your household requires.
However, as a general rule of thumb, move your consumption of dishwasher, washing machine, drier, pool pump etc to the day . This way you increase the utilisation rate of your solar system, which will save you money.
Secondly, In most cases, you will not need to climb on your roof on a routine basis to wash your solar panels. Solar panels clean themselves via rain , especially if they have been installed in an angle. However, it is critical that you clean them on a regular basis. The amount of times per year they will need cleaning is determined by a variety of factors, including where you live. Dirt, mould, sea salt, and animal droppings all reduce the amount of sunlight that your solar panels can absorb. This can have a significant impact on the output as it can reduce your panel’s ability to absorb light.
Finally, monitoring your home’s energy demand will assist you in keeping your solar panels as successful as possible. Apps that track your energy consumption are linked to your solar panels. They show your daily, half-hourly, and daily total feed-in credit.
