Solar Panels

If you live in Perth, there is no better time to go solar than today. There are plenty of benefits, including:

Perth is one of the sunniest cities in Australia.

Perth enjoys approximately 265 sunny (and a little bit of partly sunny days) throughout the year. Even during winter, the city rarely has a temperature that reaches below 10 degrees. Solar panels can stay busy 70% of the year.

Power bills are getting more expensive.

Since 2009, electricity costs have been steadily increasing in Western Australia. This year will not be an exception to the trend. Electricity tariffs started rising in 2017, prompting homes and businesses to pay 7% more on every billing cycle. Installing solar panels will help lower, if not eliminate, these regular expenses.

Rebates and the power buyback is available.

Purchasing solar panels earns you rebates known as Small Technology Certificates (STCs). They can assist towards the cost of your system. The value depends on the market, so they can rise and fall anytime.

STCs are quite difficult to understand for the consumer. It is why people turn to Easy Solar to take care of the rebate aspect of the sale.
One more reason why you should turn to solar is the Renewable Energy Buyback Scheme. It pays residents or business owners for the units of electricity that the solar system produces that remain unused. Electricity retailers (Synergy for Perth and Western Australia) purchase the energy you generated, which even gives you an opportunity to earn.

Solar Panels and Their Performance

Two types of modules exist namely crystalline and thin-film. Many opt for crystalline because the modules have a higher efficiency rating than the other type. Crystalline, which can either be poly or monocrystalline, are suited for rooftop installations.
The efficiency rating, which is expressed as a percentage, refers to the ability of the solar panels to convert sunlight to electric power. If you have two types of panels, the one with the higher rating will produce more electricity than the other.
Many consumers, as well as the professionals in the solar industry, view panel efficiency as the most significant criteria in determining the quality of the product. It is indeed important but it is not the only thing to consider. Here at Easy Solar, you never have to worry about the performance and efficiency of the panels as we only sell products that are of the highest standard.

There are several choices available for solar panels but Easy Solar offers Tier-1 solar panels only. Bloomberg New Energy Finance Corporation reveals the list every year. The brands may change in ranking but the top five to 10 usually remain the same.

With the help of our experience in the solar industry, we have come to know different products. It is why we have chosen to provide only the very best for our customers. The list of Tier 1 panels may differ every year but it is based on the following criteria:

  • The credibility, bankability, and longevity of the company
  • Worldwide sales
  • Production capacity
  • Quality of products
  • With a fully integrated manufacturing plant
  • Substantial in assets and turnover
