Grid fed solar system produces power each day that is used within the house to reduce your total power consumption.
Maximise your business energy savings with a commercial solar system. Maximize your energy production and save money.
Solar power by itself is very cheap energy, but the problem with solar energy alone is that it’s only generated during the day.
A Solec Industries installed home solar system is designed to save you money now and into the future on your electricity bills or even on return Investment when selling your property. By generating your own electricity, you and your household become immune from rising electricity prices as well as enjoy free electricity from the sun.
Everything you need to know about Residential and Commercial Solar Power
During the heady days of the ending of the government solar rebate in November 2016 my brother and I contacted various solar industry organisations and decided on Solec Industries. From the beginning they have provided confidence and expertise, they are a great company to deal with providing a fine tuned and fantastic service and communication that is professional and responsive for all our needs. With the never ending news of rising electricity prices and non-guaranty of supply it is a relief to have both savings with falling costs coupled with a solid guaranty of service regardless of the grid situation. All aspects of the package looks and performs wonderfully, the panels, inverter, battery and the online aps. They went the extra yards with helping with the customising of the security shed containing the inverter and battery. Rob and Jeremy are quick to rely to requests even seven months after installation with support and assistance with my own electrician. I am happy to recommend them in this their chosen field.
The system I installed was a 5kW solar array feeding into a 10kW Lithium (LiFePO4) battery hooked up to the grid via a hybrid inverter. The net result of this system - when tweaked for maximum eynergy - was a drop in power bills from $400 to $95 per month. Dramatic! The input into the battery peaks around 11-30am to 12-30pm, maintaining a 100% battery capacity until around 3-30pm when the battery starts to slowly discharge. This excess is returned to the grid with a rebate. These values vary depending on the degree of cloud cover and ambient power drain drawn directly from the solar panels. The most surprising result is that the solar-battery combination, when optimised, has resulted in a complete removal of dependency on peak power rates and a dramatically reduced shoulder and off peak rates. These two factors have contributed to the staggering price reduction. Additionally excess power is fed into the grid and generates return, though the niggardly rate this is set at by the power companies, compared to their charged tariff, reduces the potential this should rightly have. Mention must be made of the superb and ever ready service that Jeremy and Robert provided in choosing, setting and purchasing the components, as well as their seamless installation and assistance in fine-tuning the inter-play between the various components and the inverter to maximise the power capture/use and feedback to the grid. They installed software which enables real-time monitoring of state of the system by a mobile phone or better yet, via a computer interface. Then adjusting the parameters to nail a problem, in conjunction with the team, is seamless.

Rob Hanson, a director of Solec Industries Pty Ltd, has been our electrician since 2008 and provided many services for us in our former home. When we knocked down and rebuilt our new home, Rob was the person we wanted to do our electrical work and install our ducted air-conditioning. In 2012, as electricity prices were only ever going to go up, we decided to look into solar panels. Solec Industries installed 16 solar panels for us and we were very happy to almost halve our next electricity bill, Last y ear, 2016, we had them install another 11 panels and have noted y et another big drop in our bill. We cannot speak highly enough of the professional way in which Rob, Jeremy and their staff alway s approaches their work. I would recommend Solec Industries to any one looking for a job well done and at a very competitive price.

In early February 2017, my wife, Lorraine, and I decided to replace our old, internal air conditioning unit. On the recommendation of a neighbour, we asked the above firm for a quote to supply and install a suitable replacement. We were impressed with their presentation and knowledge. The quote was accepted and the recommended unit installed. During the installation of the air conditioning unit, my wife and I noted that Solec Industries also supplied and installed Solar Electrical units Although I am familiar with the principles and theory of solar systems, I have little experience with the practicalities. We, accordingly, again sought Solec Industries advice and recommendations.. The recommended system was installed and commissioned.. I have been impressed with their knowledge and patience. From our experiences I would , without reservation, recommend Solec Industries to people who have similar needs.

Hi Rob Thanks for completing our Q cell solar panel and solar edge optimiser- inverter installation . The roof to be covered with 24 panels was a unique contemporary curved corrugated metal roof carport approx. 6.5 X 6.5. We had several solar companies inspect the site and they both said it was not possible to put solar panels on the soft curve roof. Rob did a site evaluation and said he would check a few systems to try and make a custom system. Rob & Jeremy designed and built custom ABS & Rubber spacers that allowed Extruded Aluminium beams to fit and follow the roof curve , This system was perfectly executed and the result was solar panels that hugged the roof and looked curved & neat , just perfect. Robs team did a fantastic job with all the guys being very professional craftsmen, nothing was too much trouble. As a professional Aeronautical Engineer my ideals are very high, Rob exceeded my expectations in every way including a very competitive quote with no nasty surprises or extras. Thanks again Rob
"Researching solar systems for the first time without any prior exposure became a confusing exercise. We contacted six different companies, and received 6 different solutions with advice that in a number of cases was strongly conflicting. With all these companies, no one was interested in coming out to our house to discuss the particular issues that we had with a flat metal roof (drilling holes) and a few very large obstructing gum trees. These companies provided quotes with a “street view” roof top image (with solar panels overlaid). However, these images always showed the single most optimal shadow pattern in a one year period, which is a misleading representation in a four season climate. We stopped by to talk to a resident in our suburb who had a very complex curved roof solar panel installation. He recommended Solec Industries to us. We called Rob, who was more than happy to come out to evaluate and alleviate our specific concerns. Rob came back with a quote and design optimised for a yearly period, which included tree shadowing. The solar panels are integrated with the house design and no holes were drilled into our KLIP-LOK metal roof. Initially Rob installed four arrays of five high end panels with software and apps to continually monitor power generation from each panel. We were so happy with the result that 5 months later we installed an additional interconnected array on the available roof space. Solec Industries have supplied a personalised high quality solar system and we highly recommend their product, service and workmanship."
