This can depend on several different circumstances including:
● The size of the system you get
● Usage rates (that change over time)
● The amount of solar vs grid power you use
● Your plan's feed-in tariff and cost of electricity
However, many clients have reported repaying their solar system within 4-8 years.
A solar panel can only produce energy when exposed to sunlight, therefore, at night it is not producing energy. However, with the addition of a solar battery, excess electricity is stored and available for use after dark.
When the surplus power is supplied to the grid, the homeowner usually receives a credit or a payment for that electricity. This is energy is called a feed-in tariff.
The impact of orientation on solar panels depends on many factors. For example, a house with south-facing solar panels tends to generate less than houses with north-facing panels. It should also be taken into account that this can change based on your location, availability of space and the installation scenario. Don’t worry about this, though, our experts and technicians will take care of it for you.
Solar power installations generally last up to 25 years. We can find solar panels delivering power that were installed more than 30 years ago. Other components such as inverters, batteries and controller systems will survive a decade in most cases.
Solar power systems usually require minimal maintenance, With a grid-connected system, electronic components are ideally maintenance free. In case you need maintenance let our master technicians help you.
