Switching to solar on the Gold Coast

Solar panel installation from Tesla Electrical & Solar

Since the introduction of the Solar Bonus Scheme, which closed in 2012, over half a million Queenslanders have taken the leap and chosen to install solar panels. Not only does Solar Power reduce your carbon footprint but it also helps to drastically increase savings on power bills and earn money from excess power generated from your solar panels.

Tesla Electrical & Solar has over 20 years’ experience within the Solar industry helping Australian’s select a Solar Power solution that best suits their needs and budget, servicing homeowners within Palm Beach, Casuarina, Kingscliff and down to Pottsville.

Why are Gold Coast homeowners switching to Solar Power?

Queensland isn’t known as the sunshine state for no reason, having an average of 7.5 hours (63%) of full sunshine a day, which means a 3kW system, running at an average of 85%, can generate a Gold Coast homeowner an output average of 13kW an hour during peak summer months. This output is exciting and can reduce the time it takes for homeowners to see a return on investment.

Homeowners in sunnier states within Australia have more favourable benefits, those that live on the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast are more likely to gain larger savings, based on the increased hours of sunshine a day.

Within Queensland there are two rebates available, Small-scale Technology Certificates (STC) scheme introduced by the Federal Government, giving those that qualify the option to receive a discount on the total cost of the Solar Panel System by being issued certificates to pass onto the installer. The second rebate available to Queensland residents is the Feed-In Tariffs, where the excess energy produced by your Solar Panels is transferred to your energy providers grid, in exchange for either a discount on energy bills or a rebate. There are two Feed-In Tariffs to choose from: Minimum Flat-rate and Time-varying.

I've worked for soooo many solar companies throughout the years and when it came to doing a solar system on my property I knew what to be looking for. I worked out a deal with Clayton to give him a hand on my system to make it a little bit cheaper and so I could make sure that none of those dirty shortcuts sales companies use to make jobs quicker and substandard were not going to happen on my system. I was suprised and even learned a few things off Clayton and his team that improved the system beyond my experience. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT IF YOUR ARE GOING TO GET ROOFTOP SOLAR GO STRAIGHT THROUGH AN ELECTRICIAN!!! Clayton's the man for any job.

Teslar were great at explaining the process for the solar rebates, our best options for a two storey house and helped us along the way with the application process. The installation was done professionally with care and timeliness. Especially while our young family was home there. Thankyou for a great job

Clayton did a very professional job with the installation of solar to our property. He advised us as to which system was best for our location and he carried out the work in an efficient and professional manner. He also made himself available after the installation to answer any queries that we may have had. I would have no hesitation in recommending him for future installations. Since installing our solar his has provided solar to both my sisters premises.
