There is no doubt that 2022 will see an immense demand in both residential and commercial solar technologies in Australia as we see more Aussies are making the choice to go solar. It is no wonder that many households in Australia can supply their home with free electricity. A study states that Australia has become the second largest source of energy production from rooftop solar as the panels have become more affordable and available. As the best solar installers in Melbourne, we have discussed some ways to get the most out of their solar panels.
Solar panels can produce electricity during the day time and trying to maximize your energy usage means using as much of free electricity during a bright sunny day time. Solar Today recommends people in Australia to charge their laptop, Smartphone or tablet during day time and unplugging it during the night or by setting timers on appliances to switch off automatically before sunset.
One can still use solar-generated electricity during night by making use of in-house compatible batteries installed.
Depending on the type of solar system the appliances usage can be made. One can conserve electricity by using one appliance at a time. For instance, using washing machine after your shower, preparing dinner before you switch on TV and vacuuming after your dishwasher will help in conservation.
Dust on solar panels isn’t so good so it is good to clean your solar panels every 6 to 12 months. Things like dirt mold and bird droppings get hardened through prolonged moisture exposure is even worse. These situations can block sunlight from reaching your solar panels. A simple spray and light brushing are all it takes to keep your panels clean. Also, it is important to inspect solar panels with professional experts like Solar Today every two years to ensure your system has the best chance to absorb most light, thus bringing more energy to your household.
Every homeowner must be aware of the usage of energy from their solar panels. To help with this we offer a monitoring system with smart meters for our customers which can display your daily and hourly feed-in. Having this information in your pocket will give you an insight of your panels in exporting the most, so you can get savvier with your appliance use. For instance, if your solar panels are exporting more at 2 PM in noon, then you can start your washing machine to start its cycle at the same time.
