Calculate your solar or battery savings...

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. ^

 

Is it right for me?

Save up to:
{{result.totalSavings}}* each year
{{ctrl.solarSystemSize}}kW Solar PV
{{result.SavingsPerYear}}
{{BatterySystemSize}}kWh Battery
{{result.BatterySavingsPerYear}}

Every year. *Calculated using the Home plan (A1) and DEBS buyback rate (if applicable). Does not take into account any concessions or rebates.. It assumes 60% of system output offsets electricity use. ^ Source: Synergy solar data and Clean Energy Council data.

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. Find out more

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

icon_solid_fronius-inverter

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

Choose quality solar panels, that are built to last

Perth is one of the world’s sunniest cities. You need solar panels designed to perform and last in our often harsh WA conditions – and we recommend you choose the best quality solar panels for your rooftop.

WA is made for solar 

Perth is one of the sunniest cities in the world, with an average of 8 hours of sunshine per day.

Almost one in three households in WA’s South West Interconnected System has a rooftop solar PV system installed. (Source: DER Roadmap 2019)

 

Solar facts

Generally the hours between 10am and 2pm is the best time for solar production on sunny days.

Dust, dirt and birds can block the amount of sun your panels receive – so these are the natural enemy of your solar panels!

Choosing high quality solar panels can help to maximise the amount of solar energy your system generates.

Solar myths

Hot weather means your solar panels will produce more solar energy.

The amount of electricity your solar PV panels generate actually decreases in hot weather. Solar panels operate best on sunny days at temperatures of up to 25°C.

The more solar panels you have, the better.

To make the most of your solar solution, it’s essential to have a system size that matches your consumption at home.

Cheap solar panels are just as good as good quality options.

The quality of your solar panels counts. While the basic operation might be the same, higher quality solar technology can create better outcomes for your system – and quality solar panels are built to last.

Invest in your home’s energy

Long-term value doesn’t always mean the cheapest price upfront, so it’s important to choose a system that suits the way you use electricity at home. 

The length of time it takes for system to pay for itself in savings is known as the ‘payback period’. This depends on a number of factors, including the quality of your solar panels, price and other elements such as your inverter, rooftop position and electricity consumption habits.
