What is OnGrid Solar?
On-grid solar systems are used to harness the sun’s energy and generate usable power for your home, but they’re also connected to the main electricity grid. On-grid solar is a popular choice for Australians because you can sell excess energy back to the main grid while still powering your own home. Depending on your region’s tariff, you could receive a generous credit on your power bill for the energy you don’t use.
On-grid systems are extremely cost-effective to install and can pay for themselves after around three years.
What size system will I need?
Energy needs will always differ from home to home, which is why Halcol Energy’s experienced team can help. Our skilled professionals can analyse your current power consumption (especially between the hours of 8am – 4pm) and accurately determine your energy needs.
For solar energy in Toowoomba, we will suggest the perfectly sized system to suit your energy needs and your budget. Every home and family in Australia is unique, so we’ll provide a personalised quote to suit your needs.
Can switching to solar panels save me money?
You can definitely save money by switching to a Solar Powered PV system! In fact, most systems pay for themselves after three years and that’s when you really start to see the savings roll in.
The amount you can save depends on a number of factors, such as your roof size, location, the size of system and several other factors. For example, if you had a 5KW system and only used 50% of the energy you generate, the remaining 50% is returned to the grid which results in a credit on your power bill. This can represent savings of approx. $1300 per year – or a massive 27% Return on Investment.
Switching to solar power in Toowomba will definitely save you money – just how much is up to you!
Cathy & Shane Smith
Being a family of four with two teenagers, a large in ground pool and a fully air-conditioned house our household electricity consumption has always been on the high side. After a lot of investigation and price comparisons we decide to use Halcol Sunshine Coast and are extremely happy we did. Their service and efficiency has been excellent.
From the first day we had our solar panels and inverters installed it was easy to see the benefit it would be to our family. However, as we are a working family whose major energy consumption is at night we saw most of our valuable resources going straight out to the grid of a day and us having to draw energy from the grid of a night. With the difference in price between what we receive for our energy compared to what we consume, we felt this situation could be better managed by installing a Tesla Powerwall 2.
Since the installation of our Tesla Powerwall 2 we have become an almost fully self-sufficient family with 99% of our power being green energy. The Tesla Powerwall 2 is able to store the energy which is created by the sun during the day and is accessible for our use during the night, meaning we no longer are going to have those high power bills. The Tesla Powerwall 2 will also help us to lower our compulsory connection fees as any excess power created after the battery has been replenished every day will feed out to the grid and we will reap the benefits. The Tesla Powerwall 2 has also alleviated any concerns that we have about living in a blackout prone area of the Sunshine Coast where we can be without power for hours and sometimes days.
Thanks to our solar panels and the Tesla Powerwall 2 we are now one of the few families in our neighbourhood whose lights are always on and life is operating normally without the worrying about losing our power.
My family and I are happy to recommend Simon Todd and the Halcol Sunshine Team for all your solar energy enquires and installation.
