This is one of our most commonly asked questions, and we always strive to provide the right information so you can make an informed decision.

Solar is never a one-size-fits-all scenario, and no two houses are the same. We pride ourselves on designing systems to adequately meet the needs of each household, so we take time and care to ensure we ask all the correct questions before providing you with a quote tailored to your usage.

If you are wanting to go solar-only without the addition of a battery, there are a few different factors that come into play when we determine if this will be a suitable option for you.

One of the first questions we always ask is “how often are you home during the day?” If you (or your family) are not home during the day, you can still make the most of your system by altering or tweaking the way you consume energy, for example by running appliances using a timer (such as your hot water cylinder, spa pool or washing machine) to ensure they are running during peak daylight hours. Without a battery, it’s important to ensure you are able to maximise the production of the panels and use as many appliances as you can during the strongest sunlight hours.

The majority of our clients end up going solar-only without the addition of a battery; it’s a fantastic way to significantly reduce your power bill each month if you are able to adapt your habits to ensure you predominantly use your power during the day. Give us a call today to see if solar is right for you!
