When it comes to electrical contracting, Karma Electrical aim to be the most reliable and affordable contractors in your area. But we also have another specialty in which we excel: solar power. Solar power is renewable energy drawn directly from the sun.
Renewable energy is surging in popularity due to concerns about the environment and greater affordability of the technology. People are inspired by the idea of helping to save the planet while also saving money on their power bills.
Whether you’re looking after the energy needs of a residential or commercial property, there’s a high chance that solar is for you. When you live in Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast or one of the surrounding areas we service, there’s plenty of sun to power your panels. However, solar panels produce energy even during cloudy days or long winters. Although less efficient than on a sunny day solar panels will continue to produce even under cloudy skies.
How Does Solar Power Work?
Solar panels (also known as photovoltaic panels) work by converting the Sun's energy into DC electricity which is then turned into AC electricity by using an inverter located at the end of a string of panels or by using a micro-inverter located at each panel. This AC electricity is what powers our everyday lights and power. The excess electricity that your home doesn't use is either fed back into the Electricity grid or used to charge a battery which can be used later to power your home at night or when your solar panels don't produce enough power to feed your electricity demand.
This can save you money due to the bonus of a feed-in tariff.
Why Should You Switch to Solar?
There are plenty of benefits to harnessing the power of solar energy, from the immediately apparent to the not-so-obvious:
Savings on your energy bill due to the feed-in tariff.
It’s a fully renewable energy source that’s better for your environmental footprint. As long as we have the sun, solar power will persevere.
Renewable energy is a pressing issue at the moment and it’s big business, so solar is sure to be at the forefront of upcoming technological advances.
Solar panels are low maintenance. They can last for decades as long as you have them regularly inspected and cleaned when necessary.
You may be eligible for a government grant through the Renewable Energy Scheme and paid for putting power back into the grid.
