It Is Now The Best Time Of Year To Install Solar Power

Spring is in the air.

The start of Spring is the best time to organise a solar power installation – you can sneak in before the big summer rush and be up and running in time to make the most of Sydney’s long days and sunny weather.

Over the last few years, most solar installers in Sydney have had lead times of many months over summer. Considering a 5kW solar system can save you up to $500 every quarter, missing out on a quick installation before summer can effectively add hundreds of dollars to the price of your system.

The output of solar power across the year

As the days start to get longer and the sun gets a little higher in the sky, a solar power system in NSW will start to output significantly more power.

A 5kW solar system in Sydney will output around 20 kWh a day, averaged out across the year. During summer, a 5kW system will typically output over 30 kWh on a sunny day, enough power for the average Sydney household to be 100% self-sufficient during the daytime.

Solaray customers with larger solar + storage systems will now start to generate enough power to run their home on solar power during the day, plus send any excess solar power into their battery to use during the evening. Households with the new Powerwall 2 battery from Tesla have 13.5 kWh of storage, often enough to run their home on solar power for 24 hours from August right through to the end of Autumn!

Don’t Pay Another Big Summer Power Bill

By installing solar power and/or battery storage now, you can dramatically reduce your power bills and run your home primarily on solar power. Offset air-conditioning, pool pumps and more by running them during the day when your new solar power system is generating peak output.
