Solar & Batteries: Savings, Security and Surety of Supply
Consumer Finance and Bank Interest rates are the lowest in living memory, and the benefits of solar have never been more compelling. There has never been a better time to install a solar and battery system (Hybrid System) for your home. Solar Energy offers real savings, security, and surety of supply.
A ‘hybrid solar system’ refers to a combination of solar and energy storage which is also connected to the electricity grid. Hybrid solar systems generate power in the same way as a common grid-tie solar system, but use special hybrid inverters and batteries to store energy for later use. This ability to store energy enables most hybrid systems to also operate as a backup power supply during a blackout.
Savings: Up to 50% of Your Electricity Needs
On average a solar and battery system can meet approximately 50% of your power needs from free solar energy. Irrespective of whether you are home during the day or not. Hybrid Solar Systems enable you to store solar energy and use it when you’re home during the evening when the cost of electricity is typically at a peak rate.
Security: Backup Emergency Power Source
When the grid goes down your Hybrid Solar System automatically disconnects, to protect the linesman fixing the grid. However, you can still use your battery to support your critical electrical needs during the outage and be the envy of the neighbourhood.
Surety of Supply: 3 Power Sources
With water shortages and powerful weather events becoming the norm; it makes sense to not rely solely on the grid. With a Hybrid Solar System, you enjoy electricity generated directly from your roof, battery power for peak periods and grid energy when your electricity usage exceeds the size of your solar system. Providing seamless abundant energy at your fingertips.
Why now is a great time to invest in Solar: 100% Ownership
Money may never be cheaper and times more uncertain. By owning your solar and battery system you are adding equity to your home, improving your homes resilience, and helping the planet.
