The Right Time to Invest in Solar Energy

As the cost of electricity continues to climb, there’s never been a better time to convert your Broken Hill home to solar. Even when you don’t consider the state and government incentives, solar is a good investment that will quickly pay for itself. Solar systems for homes have decreased in price in recent years, making the conversion an even more affordable option for more homeowners.

Getting Started: Choosing the Number and Type of Solar Panels You Need

Two factors determine the number of solar panels you need to run your house. The first is the amount of electricity you consume during the daylight hours. The more electricity you need, the more solar panels it will take to supply it. A good way to answer this question is by looking at your current electricity bill.

The second factor is whether you want to store solar energy using a battery for nighttime use. If you do, you might need to upgrade your 2 kW to one of our 5 kW solar systems. Our solar specialists can help calculate the number of panels and the type of solar system you need for optimum efficiency.

Mono Vs Poly Solar Panels

There are many types of solar panels on the market, each with some pros and cons. Experts often disagree about whether monocrystalline or polycrystalline solar panels are the best. Both “mono” and “poly” panels are made from crystalline silicon. Mono was the panel of choice in the past, while poly panels have taken the lead in sales today.

Both mono and poly solar panels are similar in make and performance. The most important factor when choosing solar systems is to get a good brand that is well-known and respected. Skylight Energy uses only Tier 1 rated solar panels from top manufacturers to ensure your new system is highly efficient and delivers exceptional output.
