How to save with solar

Having solar panels installed in your home can significantly help with your energy savings. If your home gets lots of sun throughout the year, installing solar panels is a wise investment that will help reduce your power bills. Here are some tips and tricks to get the most out of your solar.

1. Select a trusted solar installer

 A solar power system is an important investment. To maximise the benefits of solar, it is essential for the solar power system to be designed correctly and installed by qualified and trusted solar installers.

2. Select quality solar panels

Not all solar panels are created equal!

With over half a million solar panels installed on Australian rooftops, Solahart Solar Power is the smart choice for quality, reliability and durability. Before launching any new solar technology, Solahart conducts rigorous testing to ensure maximum energy yields, strength and longevity, plus minimal energy losses.

Solahart continues its testing on an ongoing basis to ensure standards remain high. This includes checking solar panel flash test results on all panels, and systematically checking samples of solar panels received using Electroluminescence (EL) imaging, to ensure they deliver all the power you purchase.

3. Greater performance for greater savings

Selecting the best solar panels for your location, roof size and energy needs is important.

In Orange and The Central Tablelands, our harsh winters require solar panels that were made to endure our seasons. Solahart’s innovative all-weather technology includes excellent low-light and temperature behaviour, resulting in more energy production per square metre. That means optimal yields, whatever the weather, which leads to greater savings and better efficiency.

Frequently Asked Questions About Solar Savings

How much will I save by switching to solar?

Each of our customers have different lifestyles and energy needs, meaning every scenario is different. To accurately estimate the potential savings you can make by switching to solar, we conduct FREE solar assessments.

Our comprehensive assessment is conducted by one of our qualified solar experts. We'll visit your home, business or site and assess the following:
- your location
- your roof size
- the orientation of your roof
- potential shading from trees or nearby buildings
- your family size
- your energy usage patterns

Typically, we'll inspect the roof closely, checking screw patterns to assess how many panels can be installed. We'll also inspect your power meter to determine whether it is compatible with a new solar power system.

Once the assessment is complete, we'll estimate your savings based on your circumstances. Contact us today to arrange a good time for your free inspection.

Can a solar battery help save money?

Yes, a solar battery can help save money by storing excess solar power during the day, which can then be used during the evening, instead of buying electricity from the grid.

Our team can assist with calculating the potential savings a battery can produce.

How will I know my solar power system is saving me money?

Firstly, you'll notice the impact of solar on your power bills.

Secondly, many of our solar customers opt for comprehensive monitoring which we can setup. The monitoring tools allow you to monitor the performance of your solar power system in real-time via your smartphone.
