Solar Panels in Australia

It’s sunrise, and your very own personal power station is starting work, providing you with FREE electricity. Photovoltaic (PV) solar panels are going to work, harnessing the energy of the sun.

Why not join the thousands of Australian households who enjoy free electricity provided by their very own solar panel power systems?

Some Australians choose solar power because it costs too much to connect to mains power. The systems they choose are called Remote Area Power Systems (RAPS) or Standalone Systems. 

Other Australians in urban Australia simply want to make a difference- to reduce their reliance on mains power, and to contribute to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. The systems they choose are called Grid-Connect Systems.

And its not just Australians who are reaping the benefits, folks across the pond in the United States are jumping all over this financially-advantageous opportunity. It would be wise to locate a decent personal tax prep software as the federal government is implementing an abundance of credits and deductions for Americans who install certain PV power features.

At Enviro Friendly, we’ve resisted the temptation to suggest lesser-quality brands of solar panels. We only feature well-established, world-leading brands like SunPower Solar and Sharp Solar, and high-perormance, long-warranty products like SunGrid.

Solar panel power systems aren’t for everyone. Only a small proportion of society cares enough to make the financial investment needed. Only a special few are sufficiently concerned about the world they pass on to their children and grandchildren. Only that special few will ever know the joy of seeing their electricity meter running backwards!

If you are one of those who care enough to make a difference, we can arrange free quotes for you on the best systems available, set up by BCSE-certified electrician-installers.

Before installing solar panels, or a solar hot water system, check if your roof needs any repair work, or even replacing. It’s very expensive to pull up a solar installation to fix a leaking roof!

Now there’s a new dimension to buying a grid-connect solar power system for your home. Progressively, Australian State Governments are introducing feed-in tariffs. Simply, this means that the electricity utilities will pay you more than the retail price for the power you produce and export. This income is tax-free, and canny customers are calculating the return on investment available. These feed-in tariffs aren’t in all States yet, and vary from one to the next.
