HOW WE MAKE ENERGY CHEAPER
Energy from the sun can be captured in two ways: as heat energy (thermal energy) or as light energy. Photovoltaic (PV) technology, also known as solar panels, converts the sun’s light energy into an electrical current.
Solar power systems have become very popular with Australian homeowners, with more than 1.7 million rooftop systems installed across Australia (as at 1 July 2017). Now, with business energy prices impacting profitability, more and more small and large commercial clients are turning to solar to save on electricity bills.
Once installed, solar systems require little maintenance, and you can expect 20 years or more, and the electricity they generate is free.
The process of converting sunlight into electricity using PV systems produces no greenhouse gas emissions. Any excess electricity above your needs can be fed back into the mains power grid or into a battery storage system.
