We’ve Been Installing Solar For Over 10 Years
Choosing to go off grid solar can be a big step but when you choose Glen Innes Solar your investment is safe with local service and support we are with you every step of the way. If you ever encounter a problem we are only ever a phone call away. With more than 10 years experience we have developed as a company to bring you reliable and quality systems that will stand the test of time.
Let’s Build Something Together
Did you know that if we worked on replacing your batteries every 10 years, off grid solar is still one of the cheapest forms of electricity and it works out to be about $0.17 per k/wh … Try getting rates like that from your energy retailer.
Are there any rebates available?
Yes, Even though you aren’t connected to the grid or an energy retailer you are still entitled to the Small- scale Technology Certificates. These are calculated by the amount of energy your system will produce each year until 2030. When you receive a quote this will be your total out of pocket expense minus the STC’s
How much stored energy do I need?
It is really important to size your system correctly when choosing to go off grid, it is not as simple as just “adding more” later. This is why we will ask you a series of questions before providing you with a quote to ensure your system is sized correctly. We do not believe in asking you to list every appliance you will use within the home because we feel this is restrictive and unattainable long term. All our systems come with three days autonomy built into them for added protection bad weather.
Is Lithium an option for off grid?
In some cases lithium can be a practical solution for off grid customers, generally we prefer to use Gel Acid Batteries and there are a few reasons for this. All our systems are built with three days autonomy built into them for added protection in times of bad weather, to do this with Lithium can become costly and soon run upwards of $60,000. At present lithium also can not compete with surge outputs of power and is limited to 5 kW’s output currently the Sonnechien allow for 15 kW’s of surge power. If Lithium is the way you want to go, call us to arrange a customised quote and we can assess your energy needs and see if lithium is a practical solution.
When is the ideal time for installation?
With new home builds and off grid systems we try to be flexible and work with you and your time frame. In some cases when you are in a remote location your builders may require power on site in order to progress with your build. If this is not the case and the system is going on the home and not a corresponding shed, then ideally we would install before any gyp-rock is put up and existing electrical wires can be easily accessed. It is important to remember that even though your batteries are installed inside a contained enclosure they still need to be located inside a weather proof location to help prolong the life of the batteries. We work with you and your time frame when ever possible.
“We were quoted $70,000 to have power connected to our new property for a fraction of that price we had an entire system installed and we aren’t stuck with a power bill each month.”
“The team at Glen Innes Solar were great, they answered all our questions and made the process really easy, they worked with our builders to fit in with their schedule and have us in by Christmas.”
“For us the decision was easy, for the same price to connect to the grid we could have a system that met our energy needs and not have to pay another energy bill!”
