Solar Electricity & Hot Water Heating

Solar Electricity 

The cost of solar panels has fallen dramatically over the last 3 years and solar photovoltaic (PV) electricity generation has now become a viable investment option. 

The most cost effective solution is ‘Grid Tied’ where any excess electricity that is generated during the day is fed back to the grid and credited by your electricity provider. During the night you use electricity back from the grid and consume any credits you have generated during the day. If you use more electricity than you have generated then you will still get a bill from your power company but it may be only a very small amount depending on how many panels you have and how much electricity you are generating.

Grid Tied solutions are much more cost effective than Off Grid solutions as there are no expensive batteries to purchase and maintain, and no complicated control systems required. With Grid Tied systems you still need to stay connected to the mains grid but you will significantly reduce or eliminate your monthly electricity bill. Check with your electricity provider to find out what rates they will purchase electricity from you as it differs from supplier to supplier.

Sunshine Solar systems are also virtually maintenance free and are expected to last as long as the roof they are installed on. Whether it is for a new house, multi tenancy dwelling, industrial application, or residential retrofit Sunshine Solar has the range of products to meet your solar hot water needs.

Kits are available in a variety of sizes and can cater for any typical water heating situation. A minimum of 20 tubes is required for a small house and most people find that they require 30 or 40 tubes to get the best out of the system.

Solar tubes can be easily fitted to most existing houses and existing hot water cylinders.
