Adelaide Solar Panels Update – September / October 2016

Solar Battery Storage For Solar Panels Systems

As we have previously discussed, the emergency of an efficient way of storing ‘excess’ solar energy produced by a solar panels systems has been the ‘missing’

ingredient in recent years, in terms of allowing Adelaide home owners to become relatively energy ‘self sufficient’. This would, in most instances, mean still […]

Adelaide Solar Power Industry Matures In 2015

6 February 2015. There have been several ‘high profile’ solar companies go into liquidation in late 2014 and early 2015. The ‘boom times’ in the solar industry are over due to:

Less generous solar feed in tariffs on offer
Decreased Federal Government incentives to install solar
Maturing market – Adelaide has over 10 percent of homes with solar […]

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 Integration – The Next Step In Residential Solar Power?

It is interesting to note the ongoing research and development into integrating photo voltaic cells (solar panels) into the initial build of Australian homes. The ‘add-on’ approach to current solar installation – where, driving around Adelaide suburbs you currently see  solar panels mounted on racking systems which are secured to the roof of houses, could […]

Thin Film Solar Cells – C.S.I.R.O. Leads The way Again

Full credit has to go to the C.S.I.R.O. – one of the ‘unsung heroes ‘ of Australian innovation and a hugely successful researcher of solar power and solar panel technology for the next generation.  They have the capability to ‘print’ thin film solar cells of A3 size with applications like back up power for portable […]
