Solar power system in Brisbane, Queensland

Going Green - Solar Power System

Going green does not only help the environment, it will help you save money.

By installing a solar power system, the running costs of your property will drop dramatically.

We at AAE Industries have created a list of things to take into account when deciding which solar power system that best suits your needs.

1. Measure your current energy consumption

Finding out much power your household uses is really easy. Have a look at your last power bill - the amount of energy you consumed will be shown in kWh (Kilowatt hours).

It will also show you the power usage of last few months if you want to see your average usage. Knowing the figure will help us pick the correct type of system that will best suit your lifestyle.

2. Location

In Australia, we have one of the highest solar radiation per square metre out of any other continent in the world. This means there are plenty of opportunities to utilise the sun's free power.

Living in sunny Queensland is another great influence in solar energy production - we have the highest number of solar radiation out of all Australia.

For example, if you were to compare Brisbane and Melbourne, you could get away with installing a smaller kW system here in Brisbane compared to Melbourne. Down there you would need a bigger system (at least 3kW) to get the same results.

3. Budget and size of the solar power system

This is where you personalise the power usage and match it to the best solar power system that suits your needs. This will determine how many panels and what size inverter you will need to produce enough power to run your household.

Once these figures are quantified, our electricians with Clean Energy Council Solar Accreditation can custom build and install a full solar power system for your residential property or your commercial workplace.
