Powering your family’s future.
Most of us are aware that the cost of electricity is increasing; in today’s world we use more devices than ever before, many of us run computers, multiple televisions, coffee makers and many other small appliances like phone chargers all adding up to increased energy usage than at any other time in our history. Increased demand of any commodity or product that is limited in its production leads to increased prices, as investment in infrastructure and resources to meet demand requires capital.For most of us we have talked about installing a solar system to assist in cutting the bills, we have seen the advertisements in the paper, on the web and on television. But how many of us really understand if a Solar energy system is a good option for us and if it is, which type of system will meet our objectives?
Not all solar energy systems are the same!
It’s true, not all solar energy systems are the same, the reality is that the options are varied and the system which best suits your family can be as unique as you are. You see we all use energy differently in our homes, at different times of the day. A variety of factors affect how we use energy in our home, the number of people, the age of the people and the lifestyle we have. Also our homes vary in shape, size, age and orientation. One size does not fit all! The right approach is to have your circumstances professionally assessed by a qualified solar expert, someone who has been specifically trained and is certified to analyse your energy usage to ensure your circumstances are fully understood then take you through a process which helps you discover your options and understand the expected outcomes so you can make an educated decision with all the facts.

How do off grid power systems work?
Advances in wind and solar power over the years has seen major improvements to off grid technology - it's now cheaper and more efficient than ever; so just because you're living in a remote location, doesn't mean you need to sacrifice creature comforts!
Here's how a remote power generation system works.
- Sun shines on the Solar panels or wind turns Wind Turbine blades, generating DC electricity
- The DC electricity is fed into a regulator which controls the amount of charge
- Deep Cycle Batteries are charged
- 12 volt appliances can be run directly off the batteries or the current routed through an Inverter which converts it to 240V 50Hz AC electricity; suitable for running standard home appliances
