What makes a good solar system?

Buying a Solar Systems is like most other large purchases you might make for your company or household, in the sense that you generally get what you pay for. We would recommend buying high quality solar panels that are also suited to your exact needs. Cheaper systems may cut the initial expenditure, but low-quality systems can cause electrocution and electrical fires and are less likely to "go the distance".

With over 6 years experience, Sunlink Energy’s Panels, which are reasonably priced, made with quality components and are extremely reliable.

Finding the right solar system components

When shopping around for solar systems and components, we'd recommend using a reputable supplier with a proven track record - Buyer beware: make sure you aren't buying cheap imitation products from an online store or rogue factory with limited experience. It's not unheard of for smaller companies to sell off "fakes" which have been imported from China which won't work as well, and won't last as long.

As always though, purchase around and speak to a number of suppliers about your requirements (even talk to some of their previous customers) and compare prices on similar components

Some practical advice for choosing components

The number of panels that need to be bought depends on the rating of the solar power system that is required, your budget and the space that is available for installation. For example, a solar panel of rating 1.5 kW would occupy 12 square metres of area on your roof.

Your current energy bill is also a useful guide to the type of system you might need for your family home or business. An average-sized family living in a three-bedroom household typically uses 8 kWh to 15kWh of energy per day. Depending on factors such as state of residence in your location and the amount of direct sunlight that is received in a day, on average, a 1kW power system would help to generate anywhere between 3-5 kWh per day.

The government also offers solar rebates, based onevery MWh of energy expected to be generated over the life of the power system. These certificates can be traded in the certificate market for cash or surrendered to the installer to for up-front rebates on equipment.
