If you are considering moving to solar energy you’re probably wondering first, which solar panels to choose. It’s vital to do your research because the most expensive are not necessarily the best. However, there’s more to the story than the panels that end up on your roof...
The sun is the most abundant energy source available on Earth and best of all, it's free. Using the sun to power your home through solar produces no pollutants and is one of the cleanest sources of energy available. Every solar power system installed decreases the amount of fossil fuels needed to generate electricity, which in turn reduces the pollutants that contribute heavily to global warming.
When the sun shines, its energy can be captured by solar panels installed on your roof, which is then transformed through an inverter into the electrical current that can then be used to power your home.
From panel size to installation and positioning, there’s a lot to comprehend and many different factors to consider. Most importantly, your particular energy needs and the location/orientation of your home will determine how best to design a solar system that maximises your long-term return on investment.

FEED-IN TARIFFS FOR SOUTH AUSTRALIA
Solar feed-in tariffs (FIT) are the payments made by your energy retailer to solar system owners for the energy they generate and send back into the grid. So, excess electricity generated by your solar system that is not used in your home will be credited to your electricity account.
The South Australian state government mandates a minimum retail feed-in tariff rate of 5.3c/kWh for residential solar power systems up to 5kW. Retailers can, and some do, provide higher rates for power you feed back into the system so make sure to check with your retailer about what rate you can expect.
