Generate your own renewable electricity to use at home while the sun is shining – or invest in a battery to store excess electricity generated.
Living in one of the world’s sunniest locations has its benefits. With solar panels on your rooftop, you can harness the power of that WA sunshine to generate electricity for your home.
The amount you could save on your electricity costs will depend on a number of factors including how and when you use electricity, and the size and quality of your solar PV system.
Solar panels catch the sun’s rays and transform the sun’s energy into electricity through your inverter.
Electrons vibrate within the photovoltaic (PV) cells in the panels, which generates electricity.Learn more about solar panels
If you have a battery installed, you can store excess electricity generated to use when the sun goes down and your system stops generating.Learn more about batteries
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.
