Reliable solar energy

Living in South Australia, it’s likely that you’ve experienced a power failure before. These events are frustrating for families and potentially very costly for businesses. As we move towards a future of renewable energy, you can now avoid blackouts for good.

Even with standard on-grid solar systems in Adelaide, where you are still hooked up to the national grid for electricity when the sun isn’t shining, you can avoid many power failures. If power outages occur during the day, you won’t be affected because your home is powered by solar energy.

In addition, you may want to consider adding solar batteries in Adelaide. With batteries to store your excess power, you always have a backup in case of a power failure.

Ask us about Government solar rebates

Government rebates are always available for those wishing to invest in solar energy for a greener future. State governments often have incentives, while the Federal government also offers a scheme to make solar energy more affordable for families and businesses. Rebates change yearly, so we won’t list them here. Rest assured, when you deal with us at Tindo Solar, our experts can ensure you benefit from any rebates or subsidies available.

We live and breathe solar energy, so if there’s a way to make solar panels in Adelaide more affordable, we’ll let you know. When you call, ask us about current rebates, and we’ll provide you with all the information you need.

More savings with a solar feed-in tariff

Did you know there’s a way to make money from your solar panels in SA? Let’s first explain a typical on-grid solar installation. This is where you install solar panels and an inverter to power your home while the sun shines. It’s known as an on-grid solar installation unless you include battery storage. This is because you still access electricity from the national grid when the sun stops shining.

However, if your system generates more solar energy than you use during the day, excess energy is exported back into the main grid. Using a feed-in tariff, your electricity retailer gives you credit for any solar energy you send back to the primary grid.

Clean Energy Council-approved installation

When installing solar panels in SA, getting everything right is important. For instance, your solar panels should be titled at the correct angle and face the right direction to maximise solar energy production. In Adelaide, a tilt of around 35 degrees is perfect, especially when facing north, to get as much sun on your panels as possible.

Since solar panel positioning is so important, we only use Clean Energy Council (CEC) approved technicians. Once you decide on your solar package, we enlist the help of fully licensed and insured installation experts to ensure the job is done right.

 

Reduce your carbon footprint today

Whether you’re a homeowner or a business, looking after the environment is everybody’s business. Traditionally, eco-friendly business practices cost more, but that’s where solar energy is different. You can get it directly from the sun rather than relying on coal-burning fossil fuel plants for your power. It’s free, and it’s so much better for the environment.

Of course, there is an upfront cost, but most solar systems pay for themselves through energy savings in approximately 4 years. Switching to solar saves you money and is great for the planet. For commercial customers with mandatory carbon emissions reduction requirements, solar systems in Adelaide are a great start and may even qualify you for Australian Carbon Credits or other carbon offsets.

Frequently Asked Questions

What size solar system do I need?

The required solar system size varies from house to house. You must consider your historical energy consumption to determine how much kWh you use daily. This is a basic way to determine your needs, but our Tindo Solar experts look a little deeper.

We analyse when you use the most power, considering peaks and troughs throughout the year. With this data, we can determine which size system will comfortably service your energy needs all year round.

A 6.6kW system is enough for most South Australian households. Still, it depends on the number of people living there, how much energy is consumed and whether you want to store or sell excess solar energy.

How much energy does a 10kW solar system produce?

Weather conditions affect how much energy your Australian-made solar panels can generate. But on a normal sunny day with clear skies, you can expect a 10kW solar energy system to produce around 40kWh of energy per day. This should be ample power to run most Australian households, but it’s important to remember that every home is different. It’s always best to consult your Tindo Solar experts to get the best-size solar system for your needs.

What return on investment do solar panels provide?

There are several factors that determine your return on investment (ROI) for solar systems. Essentially, a solar system is considered to have paid for itself when your energy savings total the same amount as your upfront installation costs. Therefore, how much you save depends on how much energy you use and when you use it.

For example, let’s say your solar system costs you $5,000. If you save $1,000 on electricity bills yearly, the system pays for itself in five years. To accurately determine ROI, you also need to factor in the initial cost of your system. Don’t worry – our energy consultants give you an accurate ROI assessment during your consultation.

How long does solar system installation take?

Most solar system installations can be completed within a day. The system’s size, location, property access and weather conditions can affect the installation process, but as a guide, we recommend most installations take one day. When our energy consultants meet with you, they will inspect your property and give you a better estimate of how long your installation will take.

Which direction should my solar panels face?

The generally accepted direction for your solar panels to face is north. North-facing panels usually experience more sunlight during the day, which increases solar energy production. In some cases, facing your panels directly north may not be possible, significantly if trees or other buildings are obscuring the sun from that direction. In this case, you would ideally try to position your solar panels facing northwest or northeast.

The tilt level is also an important factor, and this varies depending on your home’s latitude. For example, in Adelaide the recommended tilt is around 30 degrees, but in Darwin, it is 18 degrees. Again, you don’t need to worry because our solar experts always find the optimal position for your solar panels.

Are Australian-made solar panels better?

Since we manufacture Australian-made solar panels, we may be a little biased. However, we manufacture in Australia for several reasons. Firstly, we’re a proud South Australian company that wants to contribute to the Aussie economy positively. But also, we maintain total control over our manufacturing processes. Our solar panels go through over 25 quality control checkpoints before leaving the factory.

One statistic we like to consider is the average failure rate of solar panels. The average rate globally is around 1 in every 1,000 solar panels will fail. Tindo’s failure rate is 1 in every 200,000, meaning our failure rate is around 200 times less than the global average. So, for this and many other reasons, we do believe that Tindo solar panels are better than their overseas counterparts.

How can I maximise my Adelaide solar panels?

There are heaps of ways to get more out of your solar panels. Firstly, keep them clean and well-maintained. Washing them with warm, soapy water is advised twice a year, and you should have them serviced once a year for peace of mind.

Also, consider when you use solar power. Your system produces the most energy during daylight hours, so try to program expensive appliances like dishwashers and washing machines to run during the day. This means less reliance on the national grid and lower electricity bills.

Are South Australian government rebates available for solar panels made in Australia?

Both state and federal governments offer solar panel rebates. These change frequently, but you should always ask us about current rebates. We’ll let you know what’s available inSouth Australia and even help you take advantage of them with as little hassle as possible.

Do you offer special solar energy packages?

We don’t offer set solar system packages because every home is different. Instead, we consult thoroughly to determine your needs and tailor a system to suit them. Our prices are still affordable, so don’t worry!

Why should I consider solar battery storage?

Solar batteries allow you to store excess power for the evenings (or when the sun isn’t shining). They also give you a reliable source of power in the event of a blackout or if something goes wrong with your solar panels. While there is an upfront cost for solar battery installation, many people enjoy the added energy independence. It’s also a great investment if you’re considering an electric vehicle in the future, as you may be able to charge it every evening with free solar energy.
