What type of warranty is supplied with the system?
The solar systems we supply come with a 5-year warranty on inverters and a 25-year output warranty on panels. (Some inverters have an extendable 10-year warranty).
If my energy requirements increase, can I upgrade the system?
The short answer is yes; you can upgrade your system later. However, it is more cost-effective to install a suitable system from day one. Call us so we can design the right system for you.
Will I be financially better off?
A 5kw system can save up to $15,000 over the life of the system – up to 16% ROI.
What Government subsidies are available?
The current Government subsidy is in the form of an STC (Small-scale Technology Certificate). STCs are a tradable commodity similar to shares. CS gives you an upfront discount on your solar system in exchange for your STCs to make it easier for the customer and cheaper to purchase a solar system.
How long will it take to pay for itself?
It takes as little as 4-5 years on average to recoup your outlay costs.
Does the power I generate get used in my property first or sent to the grid first?
The power from your solar system will be used to meet your energy needs first; anything left over will go back on to the grid.
