Do you have a small solar system? Time for an upgrade with Eco Ease

Time for an old solar system renewal

If you’re living in the beautiful Sutherland or Wollongong region, you know to have your home comfortable in the hot summers and cold winters, heating and cooling is critical.

Unfortunately heating and cooling via air-conditioning nowadays also means higher power bills.

You might already have an older solar system installed between 2007 and 2018 and wonder why, despite having solar you are still getting high electricity bills.

This is because in many cases your solar PV system is undersized, meaning the electricity consumption of your household and the generation of your older solar array – do not match.

It could also be that your system has lost efficiency, the inverter has stopped working or nearby trees have grown and creating more shadows. All of these reasons could cause your power bills to spike.

If you want to know how to improve you old solar power system’s performance or if it is time for a replacement system or upgrade – why not undertake an Eco Ease PV system health check.

Why Upgrade Your Solar System?

Eco Ease Solar

Enhanced Energy Production

Older solar systems might not be as efficient as the latest technology. They might also be too small to support your current power consumption. In the past solar panels were much more expensive, so many homeowners installed smaller systems.

Unfortunately, it is not as easy as just adding more panels, as the Australian Renewable Energy System Installation standards have changed. Therefore, older systems have to be upgraded, replaced or another second system installed next to them.

Add Energy Storage with a Battery

With the decline of feed-in tariffs, storing excess energy in a battery is now more beneficial. A home battery will also make your residence more EV-ready.

The home storage battery allows you to use the power you generate whenever you need it, reducing your reliance on the grid and cutting down your electricity bills. It simply means you use more of your solar energy, instead of exporting it to the grid.

So, when you have your older solar system checked, also consider the installation of a solar & battery combo and say farewell to bill shock for a very long time.

Has Weather affected you old solar?

Being close to the coast, both Sutherland from Cronulla to Menai as well as the Wollongong and Illawarra escarpment are exposed to coastal climate, from strong winds to salty air. This year-on-year exposure can affect the efficiency of old solar panels.

Upgrading to newer, more robust, and higher efficient panels means on the same size roof one can now get that much more output and it also ensures that your new system is better equipped to withstand the elements, from salty sea air to high winds.

Future-Proofing Your Home

As technology evolves and energy demands increase, having an upgraded solar and battery system ensures your home is ready for the future.

This is particularly important if you plan to incorporate electric vehicles or smart home technologies. call Eco Ease to explore your options. Get into action instead of facing ever-increasing power bills.
