General FAQs

Utilizing solar energy can help you lower your electricity costs drastically, while also facilitating protection of the constantly rising electricity costs well into the future

The costs are generally associated with the utility costs and legislative policies applicable under any regional definition, but all of them are equitable to making a smart investment nevertheless.

Generally speaking, solar energy is perhaps the most undeniable form of renewable source from which energy could be derived upon any given instance of application, or when or where it is being used.

Solar energy use drastically reduces carbon and other forms of emissions that can help in not only facilitating a healthier way of life, but also aids in the perfect establishment to protect the all-important resources present on the planet.

Solar panels work on the basis of absorption of sun’s rays, which are present in the form of light, and converts into electricity.

Generally, the electrical energy produced is in the form of DC electricity, which is then passed through an inverter to be used as AC converted electricity. This form of electrical energy can be used in everyday applications, which are commonplace in commercial electrical use almost everywhere.

It does not mean that anyone should go completely away from an interconnected on-place grid facilitating electrical power whilst utilizing the solar system as a means for producing energy.

However, it means that you are totally in control of when to use solar energy as per your own discretion.

In many instances, energy stored from solar panels can be used alternatively when the rates of use is high, and there is a possibility of saving a lot in the way of costs as a result.

Any solar water heater absorbs the energy from sunlight with the help of collectors installed upon one’s own roof, and as a result, is transferred to the water circulating inside of the house. The water involved is mostly stored in a tank for preserving the heat energy conserved as a result.

A Solar Power system converts the light from the sun and makes it into electricity to be used commercially. The amount of electricity generated is mostly dependent upon the number of panels, as well as the size and capacity of the inverter involved. The produced power in excess can either be stored, or be sold back to the grid, which can be utilized alternatively when the sun is not shining, and there is a need for the use of electricity

Solar Power FAQs

Any solar power system makes use of the photo-voltaic (PV) cells in order to convert to sunlight into electricity. In this case, initially there is a direct production of Direct Electricity (DC), which needs to be converted to AC for use across residential and industrial units, or they can also be directly fed into the National Electricity Grid.

The National Electricity Grid is essentially a planned layout by which there is essentially a national distribution of electricity all across Australia. Installing a solar power system means any unit can itself contribute to the grid so that there is enough electricity available for the entire population.

An electronic device that converts DC power to AC electric power modules over time so that there is proper and uniform way of utilizing electricity in the best way imaginable. It also facilitates in the protection of equipment and general safety for people.

Electricity generated by a solar power system is mostly utilized to offset the power consumption, which would otherwise had to be purchased from a retailer. There are two benefits to this- significant deduction of the costs accrued, as well as less pollution leading to holistic sense of health and social improvement.

The savings you can ensure upon installing a solar power system is dependent upon a wide variety of factors. Generally, the usage of household electricity, the size of the system, and the module orientation and inclination are all influential upon the scale of savings involved. While the number of years might also become a factor overtime, any local Xceed Solar consultant can provide accurate estimation for all the costs involved.

Yes, since the inverter shall only produce power when connected to the supply of power from the grid.

The lower scale value involved in this respect can extend somewhere about 11 meters of roof space at the barest minimum. This can appropriately generate 30% energy required by any household. There are system sizes, and the more the roof space, the more effective is the entire facilitation of energy all across the board.

Generally speaking, north facing roof options generally result in the most absorption of solar energy. However, that does not mean that other direction won’t work at all; it will just be not as efficient or desirable for that matter.

It is generally dependent upon the size and capacity of the inverter involved. With the effective space upon the roof, there could be expansion of the collective inverter capacity, and by extension, the entire system at large.

The maintenance upon this case can certainly expedited only by keeping the surface of the modules clean at regular intervals, apart from which nothing else is required.

In every aspect, you can check upon the guarantees involved in the solar modules products, which are quite innately accurate specifically in the case for Xceed Solar.

Payback period is generally dependent upon quite a few number of factors, including feed-in tariff, the size of the module system and the household electricity consumer profile. Any able Xceed Solar consultant can accurate give you a payback period estimation after proper inspection and evaluation.

Xceed Solar offers different warranty definitions, the most common of which includes a 10 year one upon 255W panels, as well as a five year one upon inverters. For the full details, however, it is advisable that you check Owners Guide and Installation Instruction.

Government Incentives FAQs?

Government utilizes STCs as a way of reinforcing their belief in the use and innovation of renewable energy. STCs become active whenever you start using a system based upon solar energy, including water heater systems, power systems and residential storage units.

1 MWh (Megawatt Hour) of energy produced from such sources results in the generation of a single such STC. The number of STCs you apply for are generally dependent upon the size of the system, as well as the location or area involved.

STCs tend to possess a market value, which can be variable over time; which intrinsically indicates that they could be sold at a discount or cash. We at Xceed Solar generally offer you discount upon the price of any such product in conjunction with the STCs involved.

Yes; as stated before, STCs are dependent upon the amount of renewable energy produced, and it can be supposed that different parts of the country are exposed to different amounts of sunlight throughout the year. As a result, the STCs generally vary accordingly.

The providers of electricity grid can offer feed-in tariffs in accordance with the amount of excess energy produced, and the amount of electricity generated, which could ultimately brought back into the grid.

Feed-in Tariff works upon the rate of every kilowatt-hour of any system that contributes to the power circulation into the grid. This power can be utilized anywhere else where there is a deficit of energy.

The tariff schemes are regulated by the governments of a particular state, and can very accordingly, relating to Gross or Net value accordingly.

A gross feed-in tariff generally pays for all the electricity generated by the solar power system, and the owner concern can buy back the exact amount as and when needed.

A net feed-in tariff pays for the excess power generated from any such system.
