How Does Solar Work?

Australia has plenty of sun which will provide more than six billion years of power. With the best solar capabilities in the world, why not take advantage of such a powerful and environmental resource? Going solar is the obvious choice in an ever increasing energy world, and the savings to your household and the environment are impossible to ignore. Give yourself a break from the increasing energy bills, and go solar today with a PV Solar Solution from Sunbank!

Australia has an average from 2,200 to 3,200 high sunlight hours per year. With most capital cities seeing 7 or more sunlight hours a day, more and more Australian’s are harnessing it. We have an amazing climate to maximise the benefits of PV solar. Able to generate power on even an overcast day we don’t need to worry about seasonal changes to get the most out of our solar.

Capture the rays with a PV solar system to suit your home. Available in a number of different package sizes, you can choose an investment that works with your energy consumption patterns as well as your budget. Sunbank Solar will have you seeing lower electricity bills in no time.

There are 3 key advantages of installing a PV solar system:

Reduced electricity bill

produce your own electricity before paying a retail provider. Using less power from the grid means lower power bills from day one.

Clean energy

energy that does not create greenhouse gas during production and energy that is generated from renewable sources such as the sun is clean energy. Reducing the impact we have on the environment.

Low maintenance

once installed, an easy annual service inspection will ensure your investment is safely functioning at its full capacity. With no moving parts, a health check is all you’ll need.

Over time the cost of solar has decreased, so the initial investment isn’t as high as people may think. Additionally, it is a long-term investment which means a PV solar system will be working hard for you well after it has paid for itself.

Solar increases the value of your home, so even short-term investments offer a good return. A good solar system is desirable in the very competitive Australian property market.

Solar systems are expandable which means you can add to your system as your lifestyle changes. Adding more panels and even a battery if suitable to your household needs.

How Can We Illustrate It For You?

1. Solar panels capture energy from the sun and converts it into Direct Current (DC) electricity.

2. The DC electricity from the solar panels is transferred to the inverter.

3. The inverter converts the DC electricity from the solar panels into Alternating Current (AC) to power household appliances.

4. Any surplus energy is fed back into the grid or a solar battery (if installed).

5. Electricity is drawn from the grid when your electricity demand exceeds your solar production.

Add a solar battery for a happier home

Solar batteries could be the solution.

Most Australian households are not home, or use very little power during the day. Energy usage is much higher during the morning and evening. This is why solar battery storage is getting everyone’s attention!

Solar batteries simply store unused electricity generated by your solar system during the day, for your own use later. Extending the capabilities of your system to have it working harder for you.

When the solar system is no longer producing power your house starts to run from the stored battery power, instead of relying on the grid. Doing more with your own solar before paying your electricity provider. What doesn’t sound great about that?

Sunbank Solar has a solution to suit your individual household needs, offering a large range of solar battery sizes and leading brands. With the analysis of a few key figures on your energy bill and our specialist knowledge, we can help you start saving even more on your energy bills today!

Sending your solar power back into the grid no longer makes sense.

Why live at the mercy of the grid when you can keep the solar you generate for yourself?

Solar batteries provide the ability to store excess solar power for use in your household when you need it most.

Taking control of your electricity usage with an energy management system to monitor your household usage.

Break free from your bills. Let the sun revolve around you.

Solar solutions designed to get your solar working harder for you.

Why Battery Storage?

Knowing what’s the right solar battery solution for you

Solar battery storage isn’t a one size fits all solution. Your PV solar system and how you use power will help determine the right capacity for you.

The capacity of a solar battery is how much power it can store. But getting the biggest battery isn’t always the best option for every household. There is no point in having a 5 litre bucket if you only have 1 litre to carry.  We want to match a battery solution to you. Making sure your battery stores the right amount of power you generate without too much over flow or without wasted space.

Choosing the right battery capacity will see you getting a better return on your investment sooner.

With a number of modular systems also available you can expand your system if your household needs change. When the kids move out and your home is using less power during the day, you could add another battery to store more excess power from your solar system. Reducing waste and increasing solar usage when the sun goes down.
