Is solar, battery or both right for your home?

How much energy you use each day will help determine the right system size for your property. For example, the average household of 2-3 people in Australia consumes around 18 kilowatt hours (kWh) per day. ^

This is the storage capacity of the battery, with a usable value of around 80%. A depth of discharge (DoD) is set for batteries so they’re never fully drained (draining a battery to empty affects their ongoing capacity retention).

Frequently asked questions

icon_solid_solarpanels

Technically, yes – but practically, no. Or at least not yet. Batteries which are built to store solar energy are not currently designed to allow you to go off grid. To be fully self-sufficient and disconnect from the grid entirely, your solar PV and battery system size would generally need to much larger to ensure it works properly across all seasons.

icon_solid_smart_tariff

A battery will generally help you to reduce your energy bill. The energy your solar panels generate using the power of the sun is free and the battery will make the most of the way you use this free energy. Changing the way you use energy will have a positive effect on your overall savings. Find out more

Maybe for a few hours. A battery can’t generate electricity, it can only store it. If there is no other generation source (e.g. solar, grid or diesel generator) and your battery has been depleted, it can’t provide power until it has been recharged. Find out more

icon_solid_fronius_battery

Yes, you can! This is one of the main benefits of installing a battery system. During the day, your solar panels can generate energy and your battery stores any excess generation you may have until it is fully charged (at battery capacity). Find out more

Step into WA’s intelligent energy future

Considering we’re in one of the sunniest parts of the world, it makes sense that solar power is so popular in Perth & WA.

Solar power is a renewable form of energy and known as a cleaner, greener type of electricity.

Using solar energy means you can reduce the demand for other types of electricity generation, as you put the sun’s energy to work for you.

You could see some considerable savings in your electricity costs, especially if you can shift more of your power use to the sunniest parts of the day when your solar system is generating solar energy.

How solar power works

Solar panels catch the sun’s rays and transform the sun’s energy into electricity through your inverter.

Rays of sun hit the solar panels.

This causes electrons to vibrate within the PV cells in the panels generating electricity.

The electricity is converted from Direct Current (DC) to Alternating Current (AC) in the inverter.

This energy is then used to power your home's appliances.

Your system will generate the most power during the middle of the day when the sun is strongest.

If you have a battery installed, this can store any excess solar energy, which you can use when the sun goes down.

3 steps to solar in Perth & WA

Complete the form above to request a quote.

You’ll receive a call from a member of Solargain’s solar team. They’ll arrange to visit your home and create a quote based on their assessment of your roof, electricity use and other factors. Once you’ve accepted your quote, the Solargain team will arrange everything on your behalf - from applying for network approvals and rebates† to installing your system.

Once your system has been connected, we’ll help you to manage your account and find ways to make the most of your new solar solution.

How much energy will my rooftop solar panels generate?
The amount of energy your solar system generates depends on the sunny conditions, the type and number of solar panels and the invertor capacity of your system. 
Do I need to cover my rooftop in solar panels?
No, and it’s not simply a case of the more solar panels, the better. The Solargain solar team will help to make sure your solar package matches the amount of electricity you use at home, based on your Synergy account. This is more effective than exporting a lot of excess energy back to the grid.
Does having solar mean we won’t need to draw any power from the grid at all?
No – and it’s worth being wary of any solar supplier who promises this, or says that you will have no electricity bills. Your household will still draw power from the grid at various times, including at night, on cloudy or rainy days - and network fees will still apply.
Does solar energy mean zero carbon emissions?

 No. The processes of manufacturing, transporting and installing solar panels and solar technology involves creating carbon emissions – but solar is definitely a cleaner, greener form of energy, especially when compared with other ways electricity can be generated.

How do I know where to put solar panels?
When you get in touch for a quote, a Solargain solar team member will arrange to visit your home to work out the best solar solution and positioning for your needs. Generally, north and west-sloping rooftops are the best orientations to catch the sun’s rays.
How is solar energy better for the environment?
Traditional electricity generation involves the burning of fossil fuels. This process sends greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. Using solar energy means you can reduce the demand for other types of electricity generation, which can help you to reduce the overall impact your household has on the environment.

*Estimated savings are indicative only. Calculated based on a system size of 5kW and assuming 60% of system output offsets electricity use and the current Home Plan (A1) and DEBS pricing as at 1 August 2021. Potential savings will vary based on the system size, applicable electricity tariffs, available buyback options and consumption habits at the premises.  

†Rebates refer to the buyback rate for electricity exported back into the network, which appears on your bill as a credit.

‡Estimated annual savings are indicative only based on the system size, historic consumption and electricity supply costs for the premises and current electricity tariffs.  Changes in consumption habits at the premises and electricity tariffs will affect potential savings from solar.
