Grid Connect Systems – Solar Panels
In sunny Queensland, installation of a grid connect solar panel system allows an owner to take full advantage of the sun’s energy by converting sunlight into household electricity to power homes, offices and schools.
The rooftop placement of the latest high efficiency solar panels silently collects the sunlight while the inverter converts and controls the flow of electricity into the home, office or school environment.
By installing a grid connect system you will generate your own electricity, which will reduce your reliance on the grid network. If you produce more electricity than you use you will receive credits towards your electricity account at your feed in tariff rate.
Benefits of solar powered electricity are numerous with the most positive being its sustainable green energy claim. Solar energy is a renewable energy source that is clean, silent and naturally replenished.
By installing solar panels you will immediately assist in reducing Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions.
It is only fair that if you acquire your energy stores from a free source such as the sun, you then benefit from cost savings as well. This is exactly what solar power allows you to do.
