Frequently Asked Questions
How does a solar power system work?
Solar panels contain photovoltaic (PV) cells, which capture sunlight and convert it into direct current (DC) electricity. This means that the panels only generate electricity during the day.
An inverter converts the DC electricity into alternating current (AC) electricity which is then used to power your home.
If the solar panels produce more electricity than your household consumes, you can feed this excess energy back into the power grid (reducing your power bill), or store it in batteries.
On the other hand, if you consume more power than the panels produce, you can always draw more from the grid.
What can I expect from my solar power system?
The first step towards a successful and efficient solar system is an accurate energy assessment. We will need some information about your household including current and previous energy usage. Once this is done, we can give more detailed predictions on energy yields, financial savings and more.
AEM can also help you reduce your energy usage, in order to maximise the benefits of solar power. We can review your:
- Hot water system
- Heating and cooling
- General appliances
- Other technology such as batteries
What size solar power system do I need?
At AEM we won’t try to talk you into installing as many panels as you can fit on the roof. We will work with you to design a customised system, depending on how much power you need, and when you need that power. For a basic guide, please view our solar packages here.
Will the solar power system need maintenance?
Once your new system is installed our qualified technicians will walk you through your new or existing system to help you understand your product.
We advise following all manufacturers’ instructions to ensure your panels are cleaned once a year from any debris or bird droppings, this will ensure your system works efficiently and safely for many years. AEM recommend an annual service, as per Australian Standards for solar installations, to test and maintain the electrical parts of your system.
Can I finance my system so it is one easy monthly payment?
Finance is a great option for solar, often your power savings are greater than your repayments. AEM has partnered with a few different finance brokers and can assist you in the process. Please note that AEM is not a licenced finance broker.
