SOLAR FOR HOME
Choosing your solar panel
Every family and household is different, and so it is best to chat to our experienced team about what size solar panel system will best suit your needs. A number of factors will come into play, including the size and orientation of your available roof space, your electricity usage habits and, of course, your budget. Many homeowners begin with a 5kW unit, which is an average sized system. If this is optimally located and operates at 85% efficiency and receives the average of 4.5 hours of peak sun per day, then the results can be very impressive. The output for a system such as this would range from 15kWh per day in winter to over 25kWh in summer.

Cut the cost of solar in Adelaide and Melbourne
The best part about solar panel installation is the generous government incentives. There is some uncertainty in the community about whether incentives were phased out after solar began becoming more popular, but this is not the case. For an entry level system of 4kW-5kW, you can still receive an incentive of up to $4,000. These incentives have been in existence for over 15 years, so you can be confident that if you ever decide to extend your system then you will be able to do so with government assistance. Navigating the paperwork for government incentives can be tricky for first timers. Luckily, Tindo Solar has had plenty of experience with these documents and we can help your to smoothly manage the process from start to finish.
A simple installation process
To begin the process and to help you make sure that you’re choosing the right system, we will send a solar contractor to visit your property and assess the site. We will be able to offer advice about the size and location of your panel system, and get an idea of how we can approach installation. Many people assume the roof is the only spot for efficient panels, whereas our technicians know that sheds, carports and garage roofs can all work very well and give you some much needed extra space. A roof angle of between 30˚ and 45˚ depending on orientation is ideal, and our energy consultants will assess your potential solar sites to deliver the best solar for home solution in Adelaide.
Some people are a little concerned with the appearance of solar panels on their roof. If this is the case, we can use advanced design software to create a three dimensional image of how your system would look on your roof. It’s a great tool to help visualise the final result. After this, we will arrange the actual installation to be carried out by Clean Energy Council (CEC) accredited technician at a time that suits you. For an average 5kW system, the installation should take approximately one day.
