When sunlight hits your solar panels, it produces DC energy that is sent via cables to the inverter, which turns DC into AC electricity that feeds your home to supply all your daytime energy needs. Any spare power is either sent to the battery to recharge it (for battery systems) or to the utility grid earning a “Feed-In Tariff” from your electricity provider that helps to offset your night time usage and further reduce the cost of your bill.

If you choose a battery system, this will provide energy that has been stored during the day to use at night. Whether you need a battery system or battery ready system, our solar specialists can recommend the right system for your energy needs.

1. Solar Panels

Solar panels are installed on your roof or on a ground mount system, tiltedtowards the sun to produce maximum efficiency. Inside the solar panel is a silicon wafer, which turns sunlight into DC energy (battery power) and the power runs through cables and feeds power into the inverter.

2. inverter

The inverter receives power from the solar panels and converts DC energy (battery power) into AC energy (electricity) then feeds the power into yourmeterbox to power your home. The inverter will send via Wi-FI the system performance and alert you in the event of a system fault.


The excess power your system generates will flow to a battery if you have one connected. The battery will kick in automatically once the sun goes down and will power your entire home until the battery is empty, then the grid will automatically take over to power your home.

How Solar Works 1

4. digital meter

Once the solar installation is complete, your electricity provider will add a meter to your meterbox, which is called metering. This additional meter will count the excess power your system is sending to the grid to calculate yourFeed In Tariff credit.

5. power grid

The excess power your system generates is sent to the grid to power homes in your local area. You will receive a Feed In Tariff from 10c – 22c currently available from various electricity providers, however you should check what the Feed In Tariff amount is from electricity providers in your area.

Our solar specialists can reduce your electricity bill up to 100% We offer a free bill analysis to show how much you can save by switching to solar.

Are you spending over $350 each quarter on electricity? Electricity prices are currently rising by more than 10% every year, so the sooner you make the switch to solar the sooner you can start saving.

It takes an average of 3 years for a solar system to be paid off, then your family can enjoy free electricity for the life of the system.

We have affordable, interest free payment plans available which means your repayments are the same or less than the amount you’re currently spending on electricity.

Peace Of Mind Guarantee

We Install Anywhere

We install anywhere in Australia and our team of over 70 installation partners are accredited with the Clean Energy Council, so we guarantee to have your solar installed correctly and in compliance with the Clean Energy Council guidelines.

Wi-Fi Monitoring

All inverters come with built in Wi-Fi to connect to an app so you can monitor the system performance on your mobile device or the website.

The app allows you to see the system performance including the power being generated, how much power is going to the grid to calculate your feed in tariff credit, how much power your home is using and if you have a battery connected it will display the battery charge level, so you know when to minimise your power use in the evening after the battery is empty.

Blackout Protection

We offer blackout protection for peace of mind, so in the event of a blackout the system will use power stored in a battery to power your home so you’re not left in the dark.

Feed-In Tariff

The excess power your home does not use is sent to the grid to power homes in your area. This Feed In Tariff credit helps to offset your night time electricity usage and if the credit is large enough you will even get cheques from your electricity provider!
