You decide to take the first step toward going solar to control energy costs, lower your electricity bill and help the environment.
We will match you with one of our knowledgeable consultants for an either online or face-to-face consultation.
As part of our renewable energy consultation we provide you with figures on financial returns, system performance estimates, panel placement, honest advice and information. Based on that outcome we’ll tailor a solar package to suit your needs.
We ask for this so we can allocate stock. You’ll secure predictable solar costs for years to come depending on your payment option with no hidden fees. All backed by our world class warranties.
Our accredited installers will install your solar system, ensuring all regulations and standards are met.
You and the installer will go through a checklist ensuring you are satisfied with the installation. Once you are satisfied, we will ask you to pay the remaining balance or sign the authority form for your preferred finance option.
Once your utility provider gives approval, you can start generating your own clean free energy.
Smile when you receive your electricity bills and enjoy clean energy for years to come!
Great product, excellent customer service. Very happy with the Hybrid system. These guys know what they're talking about. Everything was explained thoroughly, so we had a good understanding of how the system works. Thanks again Solarkraft.
Very happy with the before during and after service. Kept me informed throughout the whole process and talked at my level and not technical. Install boys were respectful and informative.
Having spent a few years in the industry, I appreciate greatly what SolarKraft does as an employer and retailer. They have a positive, caring and insightful approach to customer experience.
SolarKraft is one of the most innovative solar companies in Brisbane, offering solar energy solutions in various system sizes.
Solar power is really about to take off in a major way, and of course that revolution is long overdue. SolarKraft offers the best advice on solar in Brisbane, and is where you should come for all your solar energy needs.
We can help you with all you need to know about installing solar panels, and we are a leading supplier of solar panels in Brisbane. With the widest range of essentials and accessories in the Brisbane solar market, SolarKraft has everything you’d expect from a commercial solar supplier. That includes everything required for assembling a full solar system.
If your home solar solution can generate more electricity than you need, you may also want to consider investing in a grid connect PV system, so you can sell excess energy back to the power companies. This can help to recover the cost of your investment in solar energy. Grid connected PV systems don’t require battery storage, which results in cost savings, however also requires the continued existence of a power grid. There are plenty of people, especially in Queensland, who would prefer to be “off the grid”, even if it means sacrificing the potential to sell excess energy.
No matter what kind of solar electricity system you want to install, SolarKraft can help with supplies, information, delivery, and installation. We provide solar systems supply & installation in New South Wales as well as Queensland including Brisbane, Newcastle & Sunshine Coast.
The amazing diversity of solar power solutions in Australia today is something to behold. Systems can range in size from simple units designed to power a single appliance to huge installations capable of powering an industrial plant.
In theory they all work on the same basic principles, but there are considerable differences in the required components and their configuration in the different types of systems that can be put together.
Here are a few typical scenarios where solar might be used:
The simplest solar power system of all is a simple battery charger. This just connects to the terminals of an ordinary car battery for the purpose of recharging it, however it is important to know that between the solar panel and the battery, you should also use a solar charge controller to make sure the input supply is not too powerful.
Charging a battery without a controller means there’s now way to ensure a stable input. If the input is too high over a prolonged length of time, the battery will begin bubbling up with hydrogen gas, which is dangerous in a number of ways, so that is why you always need a solar charge controller.
Another interesting thing you can do with solar panels is use them to charge up your electric car. This is a little more demanding than just charging up an ordinary car battery. This requires around 2kW of solar panels, which translates to somewhere between 8 and 12 square metres of roof space, depending on the quality and type of solar panels you buy.
Charging the car up while you’re driving it is also a possibility, but in this case you would not get a full charge, and would still eventually need to charge it up. The benefit you would get is that your battery would discharge more slowly. On the other hand you couldn’t just put ordinary solar panels on the car, and the panels you could use would not provide much charge.
Small devices are obviously best powered by small solar cells. Because there are so few small devices designed to operate on solar power, you’ll normally need to have some knowledge of electronics and be able to build simple circuits to meet your needs. One of the more important components you can install in a circuit for solar applications is a reverse blocking diode, which will prevent the power from a rechargeable battery draining back out when the panel is not generating input.
Home made electronic devices are not something everyone will want to go to the trouble of building, but they can be very useful.
This is a very common use for solar panels, and Queensland has the perfect environment for it. Fortunately most electric fence chargers that can run on solar power already include solar panels, but if they don’t, or the panels you have are damaged, you can buy new ones from SolarKraft.
In this case we’re envisioning a situation where you wouldn’t need to power more than one or two devices at one time. For most applications in this situation, inexpensive 12V panels rated at 100W or more will normally provide sufficient power, and can be connected directly to a 12V appliance, or to a battery that in turn powers a 12V device and is recharged by the solar panel.
In both situations you will need to use the solar charge controller to ensure the input doesn’t go above safe limits. This is fine for simple things that could be run from a car cigarette lighter socket, for example.
Solar panels with output lower than 100W are available, but not really recommended, as they won’t normally perform well in this application.
Off grid solar power systems use deep cycle marine batteries for storing power. These are heavy and quite expensive, normally requiring separate storage space outside the home (because batteries can release gases when charging, storing them in ventilated external storage spaces dedicated for the task is a good ideal.
It is always best to buy as many solar panels as you can afford. Most people cover their entire roof space with panels, but you don’t have to stop there. You can also add additional banks of panels anywhere you have the space to install them.
The scenario is different here, and the motive is also different. Here you’re not storing electricity for later use, and you do consume some mains power when there’s no sunlight present for power generation.
The power you do generate will help power appliances in your home, with excess power being fed back to the grid, which power companies are usually willing to pay you for.
We’re always happy to help people understand more about solar energy and the many benefits it can provide for your personal economy and for the environment. Solar power is not just a good idea, it’s something everyone should have. Talk to SolarKraft today to find out more about how solar power can improve your life.
