5kW solar system – for small to medium households

Slash electricity bills by switching to solar
Want to reduce your electricity bills and use clean, green solar energy to power your home? Our 5kW solar panels start saving you money instantly. How much money you save depends on a wide range of factors such as system size, location, solar panels’ angle and, most importantly, energy consumption.
If you use much power during the day, your 5kW solar system will save you plenty of money. Even with the upfront cost, most solar energy adopters find the system pays for itself in around 4-5 years. This means the amount of money you save each year on electricity covers the initial cost of your solar installation.
Considering that Tindo Solar panels come with a 25-year warranty, it is a lot of savings even after the upfront cost is covered.
How much solar energy do I need?
There are different sizes of solar systems, and we can tailor a package to suit your energy goals. Our expert solar consultants analyse your consumption and determine the best options. A 5kW solar system is suitable for small to medium homes, but it’s important to remember that it’s not necessarily about the size of the house. Instead, it’s about how much energy your household consumes.
Typically, 5kW solar panels produce approximately 20kW of energy per day, assuming good solar generating conditions. The average Australian home uses around 16kWh of power each day. Choose a solar system that adequately covers your energy needs, otherwise you might fall short at certain times of the day. While not the end of the world, it does mean you’ll pay for electricity if your system doesn’t produce enough solar energy.
Get more from your 5kW solar panels
You’ll start saving money when your 5kW solar panels are installed and operational. But being smart about energy use can ensure maximum bang for your buck.
Here are a few tips to slash your electricity bills even further:
- Smart appliance usage
Certain appliances in the home use more power than others. Some of the biggest power-eaters are your washing machine, dishwasher, dryer and air conditioning units. Your 5kW solar system should be able to power all of these, but not simultaneously. It’s best to stagger how you use these appliances, ensuring your solar panels can power them. If you use them all at once, your solar system will likely not produce enough energy for them all, and you’ll need to fall back on your electricity retailer.In addition, if you have programmable appliances, schedule them to operate during the day. When you use these appliances at night, your solar panels don’t produce energy; again, you’ll pay for the power. Remember, your solar energy must be used as it is made without battery storage.
- Consider battery storage
While there is an upfront cost for solar battery storage, it’s a great way to store excess solar energy so you can use it at night. It will save you much more money and reduce reliance on the primary grid. You’ve also got a reliable backup power source in the event of an outage.
- Maintain your solar panels
Solar panels can become covered in grime, bird droppings and other debris that affect productivity. While rain does a lot of the work keeping them clean, we recommend wiping your 5kW solar panels with warm, soapy water twice a year. Climbing on the roof isn’t for everybody, so speak to your solar retailer about servicing and maintenance.
