Adelaide Solar Power Industry Trends Update – May 2015

The Adelaide solar industry has been experiencing a degree of uncertainty over the last 12 months as the Renewable Energy Target review threatened to reduce or even eliminate the small scale renewable energy scheme (SRES), which effectively ‘subsidises’ the upfront cost of solar system installation. The Federal Government now has created more certainty for the solar industry […]

Energy Storage – The Solution For The Intermittent Nature Of Solar Power

South Australians have embraced solar power systems with a fervor, with over 30 percent of all South Australian electricity produced by renewable energy sources and a target of 50 percent by the year 2025. As solar systems produce energy only while the solar panels receive sunlight, the obvious ‘drawbacks’ include:
1. Homes cannot be powered by solar power […]

Solar Panel Efficiency Hits New High’s

Solar Panel Efficiency Defined
The majority of solar panels installed on Adelaide offer an efficiency in the 14 percent to 16 percent range. Solar panel efficiency is simply a measure of the panels ability to convert the sunshine radiating onto the panel, into electrical energy. So, for example, if a solar panel has a 16 percent […]
