Reduce Your Power Bills With Sustainable Energy From A Grid Connected Solar System!
Solar Electric Technology offer grid connected power systems to suit both residential and commercial applications.
Depending on the resources you have available to you, generation may include photovoltaic solar panels, wind turbines, micro hydro or a combination of these systems. The energy generated is either used within the home or fed back into the grid. At present Meridian Energy and Contact Energy offer the most competitive rates for the surplus energy you feed back into the grid.
Solar Electric Technology can design and size a system to suit your requirements, based on your energy consumption, budget, space and renewable generation resources available to you.
Grid connected power systems reduce or eliminate your energy costs, reduce your carbon footprint and add value to your home. The added value is usually calculated on the basis that $100 saved annually in energy costs equate to $1,500 added value to your home.
NOTE: An average energy user will likely spend over $25,000 on power in the next 10 years.
A PV Solar Grid Connected System
1. Photovoltaic solar panels mounted on your roof, or on a ground mounted frame, use the sun’s solar radiation to generate DC (Direct Current) electricity.
2. The electricity travels to a grid tie inverter, usually located near to the switchboard which converts the DC electricity into 230 volts AC (Alternating Current) as used in your home.
3. The energy generated can be used within the home or business first and any excess electricity is fed into the national grid. If there is little or no solar energy available because of bad weather or at night, energy is sourced from the national grid.
A two way (Import/Export) meter is installed in place of your existing meter, to measure the energy you feed in and take from the national grid.
