HOW DOES SOLAR GENERATE POWER?
At Captain Solar, we’re passionate about the renewable energy source that is the sun. If you know a little bit about solar power, you may understand that the solar panels that we install collect energy from the sun’s rays. In a nutshell, here’s how that collected energy is converted into commercial and residential power:
• Photovoltaic (PV) Solar Panels modules collect and generate Direct Current (DC) power from the sun.
• An Inverter then converts DC power into 240V Alternating Current (AC) energy for use at your property.
• The building uses the solar electricity generated; any excess power is fed back into the grid. Meaning you are using the power of the sun to run your appliances.
• A Bi-directional meter (Net Meter) then measures electricity fed back to the grid for which you would receive credits from your electricity retailer.

So, what size solar system should you install on your property? If you’re wondering how many solar panels to install on the Gold Coast – Captain Green can help.

THE GOLD COAST IS THE PERFECT LOCATION FOR SOLAR
It goes without saying that the Sunshine Capital of Australia is the ideal location for solar power generation. The more sunlight available to solar panels, the more renewable energy can be generated for power. Solar installation on residential and commercial properties on the Gold Coast continues to increase. One likely reason for this surge is the ever-rising energy costs, as more property owners seek ways to mitigate high electricity rates. Another likely reason is that the investment in solar panels on the Gold Coast has steadily become more affordable, as more residents make the switch.
Regardless of your reasons for switching to solar, there has never been a better time to switch to solar power on the Gold Coast. There are a wealth of benefits that come with relying on a renewable, sustainable and independent energy source on your property.
While the steep initial investment can put many off the idea of solar panel installation, all of our Gold Coast customers see a positive of return on investment relatively quickly. If you’re still deciding if Gold Coast solar power is the right choice for your home or business, just think about the potential savings you can reap over the years of generating solar power.
In Australia, two million properties have some form of solar technology installed; whether it be in solar panels, solar batteries or alternative renewable energy sources. Becoming energy independent is a rapidly increasing trend across both the Gold Coast and Australia. And it’s not hard to see why: each year, as mains electricity bills and rates increase, more Australian homes are experiencing extremely high rates for general power generation. The key to freeing your household from high electricity bills is to rely on an inexhaustible, renewable energy source like the sun.
THE GOLD COAST IS THE PERFECT LOCATION FOR SOLAR
SAVINGS ON ELECTRICITY
For starters, the most significant benefits of solar power are the savings in electricity. As solar panels easily collect energy from the sun, you can significantly reduce your dependency on electrical power from energy providers. The exact savings experienced depends on several factors, such as your current electricity rates and where you’re located on the Gold Coast. You can use our solar system calculator to estimate how much you may be able to save with solar.
Solar power on the Gold Coast provides a fantastic return on your investment. Gold Coast property owners have no trouble recovering the initial solar installation expenses over the service life of their solar system. While the initial investment of solar panel installation can be high, all of our Gold Coast customers see a comparatively fast return on investment.
As the Australian Government continues to move towards renewable energy sources, Gold Coast property owners can be incentivised to move towards solar. Property owners that convert to solar power may be eligible for solar panel rebates in QLD under the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme. The local and federal government have created the scheme to incentivise the implementation of solar technology, in a bid to increase the number of people relying on renewable energy rather than fossil fuels.
REDUCES CARBON FOOTPRINT
Another great benefit of Gold Coast solar power is the impact it has on the environment. Reducing your dependency on standard electric power helps to minimise carbon footprint and protect the environment. Relying on a renewable energy source means paving the way for a cleaner, greener and more sustainable future. Furthermore, by sending the excess solar energy back into the main power grid, you’re helping others reduce their carbon footprint as well.
INCREASES PROPERTY VALUE
Properties on the Gold Coast with solar panels are worth more than those that aren’t – solar panels truly are an investment into the future of your house or business. Solar panels on the Gold Coast can increase the overall value of your house and serve as an increased incentive to future home or commercial property buyers.
