    WHAT IS A 3KW SOLAR SYSTEM?

    The 3kW Solar system size used to be a popular system size a few years back. Regardless it is still a very flexible system size for those with smaller roof spaces and should be able to provide you with a cool 12kWh on the daily. A 3kW Solar system is usually paired with 9 to 12 Solar panels (depending on the wattage of the Solar panels offered; you only need 9 of the 370w Solar panels to get 3.33kW) and a 3kW inverter. The entire package would include 9 to 12 CEC Approved Solar panels, a 3kW CEC Approved inverter (Single Phase), Roof Mounting and Electrical Kit approved for use in Australia.

    IS THE 3W THE RIGHT SOLAR SYSTEM SIZE FOR YOU?

    To decide if this is the right system size for you; we firstly need to find out what your average daily consumption of electricity is. This information is readily available on your latest quarterly power bill.  If your average daily consumption falls between 8 to 13kWh (see below 3KW SYSTEM OUTPUT IN MAJOR CITIES Table); the 3kW system would be a good fit. As in the 3kW Solar system would on average generate a similar amount of energy respective to what you are using daily.

    To ensure you are able to maximise the return from the Solar system it is recommended that you audit your current electricity usage habits. Once you have identified activities that consume a significant amount of power (such as washing machine, dishwasher, dryer etc) action a plan that will ensure these appliances and activities are only being conducted when the sun is out. (Note: try not to have heavy appliances all running at the same time; spread out the timing to ensure the Solar system is able to meet your power needs)

    SAVINGS AND PAYBACK ON 3KW SOLAR SYSTEMS

    In terms of real savings from having a 3kW Solar system on the roof; the results wholly depend on how efficiently you use the solar power being generated and what sort of Feed in Tariff (export of excess unused Solar back to the power grid) agreement you have in place with your Electricity Retailer. Our team will always provide you with an estimated Site Specific Solar Performance estimate at the Offer stage; the estimate will clearly state your estimated annual savings.

    3KW SOLAR SYSTEM WITH BATTERY STORAGE

    All existing PV Systems can now have Battery Storage Systems installed, thanks to the introduction of AC Coupling. This allows you to hook a battery upto any property as it connects straight to the main power supply. If you were looking to add our Tesla Powerwall 2 Battery Storage Option to the 3kW Solar system package; this would allow you to use the power of the Sun in the day and night. But do keep in mind that Battery backup options are fairly expensive and tend to significantly increase your back period. As such before you decide to make the plunge speak to us and we will be more than happy to advise if this is would be the right option for you.
