Great for the environment and your bottom line, solar’s the perfect choice for your energy needs. But to ensure you get the most from your investment, it’s important you choose the right system for your budget, lifestyle, and location.
Reliable and cost-effective, a 3kW solar system is perfect for the average Aussie family. More popular than a 2kW system, they’re commonly installed and great for average sized households with an average electricity bill. Here’s everything you need to know.
A 1kW solar system has 6 panels – perfect for smaller houses. Each panel measures around 1.6m x 1m, so you’ll need at least 10m2 of roof space. On average, a 1kW solar system generates 6.60 units per day. For the average household, this is enough for a third of your energy use. But if your home is highly energy efficient, a 1kW system can offset all your energy usage.
Not as popular as larger systems, a 2kW solar system is still a great option for a smaller household. This is particularly true if your home’s empty between 9 am and 4 pm weekdays, and you don’t have access to a particularly generous feed-in tariff. And with solar rebates currently available, now’s the time to buy. Here are the details you need to know.
