Residential solar panel installation

Our team instals small-scale, medium and larger 3-phase solar systems for homes of all sizes and power needs.

Grid-connected solar

Access to both solar power and grid-generated power. Utilise free solar power during the day as it is generated and feed the excess into the grid. At night when there is no sun, revert to using grid-generated power. Time your power usage to daytime where possible to maximise your savings. The main components are the solar panels and an inverter unit. A good option for homes that use the majority of their power during the day.

Hybrid solar

This is a grid-connected system (see above), with added battery storage. Instead of feeding excess solar power to the grid, store your unused excess solar and use it at night. Fully power your home at night with your solar battery and have backup power when the power goes out. Maximise savings by using your stored solar at peak times when there are high tariffs. Main components are the solar panels, inverter and solar battery. Multiple solar batteries can be installed. 

Off-grid solar

A hybrid solar-system (see above), without connection to grid-generated power. Enjoy complete independence from the grid. Great for homes in remote locations distanced from mains power and for a self-sufficient off-grid lifestyle. Main components are solar panels, an inverter and solar battery (or batteries). Sometimes installed with a backup generator.

We also do commercial solar! Solar panel installation is a great way for commercial businesses and industrial operators (especially those that operate at night) to reduce their electricity costs. Call our team today for your next small or large-scale commercial solar panel installation project.

Benefits of solar panel installation

Enjoy the many benefits of solar panel installation at your home!

  • Reduce your power bills: Monitor your solar generation and time your usage patterns to maximise savings. 
  • Go green: Solar is clean, renewable energy. Do it to reduce your footprint and do it for the environment. 
  • Independence from the grid: Power your home during blackouts. Reduce your grid-power usage during peak times (high tariffs).
  • Save money: Drastically lowered bills and bill credits (feed-in tariffs) from your power company.
  • Increase your property value: Homes with solar systems are attractive to potential buyers!

So how do solar panels work? Solar panels contain photovoltaic cells (PV cells), which generate DC power from sunlight and convert it to AC power (household power) via an inverter. PV cells can generate DC power from direct, indirect and reflected sunlight. Who doesn’t want free power?!

Solar panel installation with online monitoring

We will help you set up online monitoring so you can get the most out of your new solar system and lower your bills even further. Monitor the power-generation of your solar panels live throughout the day via your smartphone, adjust and stage your consumption and fine-tune your usage patterns to use your free solar power when it’s most available. Alternate between solar and grid-generated power during on/off-peak times so you are using grid-power when it’s cheapest and take advantage of feed-in tariffs (electricity bill credits) when they are highest! Note, the availability of online monitoring is system setup and model dependent.

Solar panel installation at your home

As experienced, qualified and accredited solar installers, there are many factors that we take into account when designing your solar panel installation that impact the overall efficiency, performance and longevity of your solar system. 

  • Size and amount of solar panels
  • The path/direction of the sun
  • Surrounding trees/shade/obstacles 
  • Positioning and angles (tilting) of the solar panels

Your system will be customised and installed based on an inspection of your premises undertaken by our technicians (including the home exterior, surrounding environment and your switchboard). We will also chat with you to gain perspective on your power usage (how much you use and when you use it) so we can design the best performing system for your needs and lifestyle. 

How are solar panels installed?

We will most likely install your solar panels on the roof of your home, however in some circumstances (depending on your home) we may install them on a wall or on the ground (frame-mounted). A solar system of 15-18 solar panels is usual for a typical solar panel installation. How long does solar panel installation take you ask? Solar system installation for an average-sized family home can usually be completed in around a day.

Solar battery installation

There are a variety of solar battery types on the market including lead-acid solar batteries and the newer (and most popular) lithium-ion batteries (such as the Tesla Powerwall). Other newer technologies include sodium nickel chloride solar batteries and ‘flow’ solar batteries (zinc-bromide). Some battery types can be less bulky (newer technologies) and there are varying user features, environmental and safety benefits. 

If you are going with a hybrid or off-grid solar system, ProSolar will help you select the best solar battery for you (based on your power needs and budget) and determine the best location for mounting (usually on an exterior wall or inside your garage). We can also upgrade existing solar systems to incorporate a solar battery (or multiple solar batteries). Talk to our experts today.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your questions answered here – by our solar experts!

Solar panel installation cost

The cost for solar panel installation depends on the type, size and design of the system to be installed. It also depends on the physical and environmental characteristics of the installation location and the degree of associated electrical work which may be required (such as minor switchboard upgrades or rewiring if needed).

Contact ProSolar today on (02) 7912 0760 to organise a detailed quotation with one of our experienced technicians for a solar system that best suits your home, power needs and budget. Let’s chat now!

Installing solar panels on roof

In most cases, the best location for solar panel installation is on the roof. They can be installed on a variety of roof types, including tiled and corrugated roofs.

Can you connect my EV charger to my solar? 

Yes we can! We also do EV charger installation, so we can source and supply your new EV charger and install it at the same time as your solar panel installation so you can safely charge your EV for free with solar! There are many EV chargers that are designed specifically to be integrated into home solar systems. We can also incorporate an EV charger installation into your existing solar system. 

Chat with our team about a solar EV charger integration today.

Can I use solar power at night?

Your solar system will not provide your home with power at night without a solar battery installation. A solar battery enables your solar system to store unused excess solar power generated during the day, and makes it available for use at night. 

Do I need a permit for solar panel installation?

A Council permit may be required prior to your solar panel installation if there are easements present or items of historical significance (such as trees) that may be potentially impacted by your installation. Our team will provide advice and guidance if this is a requirement of your solar panel installation.

Do solar panels still work in bad weather?

Solar panels are of course, most efficient in direct sun, however, they will still generate power (just less of it) when shaded and in bad weather.

What Australian Standards apply for solar panel installation?

ProSolar will install, upgrade, repair and maintain your solar system in compliance with the Australian Standards in place for solar system and solar battery installation (AS 4509, AS/NZS 5033 and AS/NZS 5139:2019) https://www.cleanenergycouncil.org.au/industry/installers/compliance-toolkit/standards
