The Polgreen’s live in Coromandel Valley SA. They have a young growing family and their home is all electric. Reverse cycle split system air conditioners provide convenient cooling & heating but their electricity bills were continuing to climb.
The solar process:
Solar electricity systems by the very nature of how they work will always outperform in summer than winter. Designing a system to meet the customers annual consumption meant summer production would always exceed winter. Surplus production in summer goes to the grid and gets credited to the client as a “feed in tariff” helping to offset those higher winter power bills when the solar system has lower output.
After looking at the roof orientation and the Polgreen’s energy consumption it was determined that a 5.4kW Solar System with 20 Jinko panels and a Fronius Primo inverter would be perfectly suited for their energy needs.
