WHAT IS A 7.7kW SOLAR SYSTEM ?
As one of our most popular system sizes, the 7.7kW Solar system is one that offers significant versitality. A Solar system of this size can generate around 29kWh of power daily (see below table 7.7kW SYSTEM OUTPUT IN MAJOR CITIES). A 7.7kW Solar system is usually paired with 21 to 25 Solar panels (depending on the wattage of the Solar panels offered; you only need 21 of the 370w Solar panels to get 7.7kW) and a 6kW inverter. The entire package would include 21 to 25 CEC Approved Solar panels, a 6kW CEC Approved inverter (Single or Three Phase), Roof Mounting and Electrical Kit approved for use in Australia.
IS THE 7.7kW THE RIGHT SOLAR SYSTEM 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 24 to 32kWh (see below 7.7KW SYSTEM OUTPUT IN MAJOR CITIES Table); the 7.7kW system would be a safe choice. As in the 7.7kW Solar system would on average generate a similar amount of energy respective to what you are using daily and also allow you to marginally increase your daily consumption if needed.
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)

7.7KW 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 7.7kW 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.
