Benefits of Solar Power Systems

� Solar power harnesses clean, renewable energy from the sun.
� It reduces electricity bills by utilizing free solar energy.
� Excess solar energy can be sold back to the grid.
� Solar panels contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

How do the Solar Panels work?

Solar panels generate electricity through photovoltaic (PV) cells exposed to sunlight. The generated direct current (DC) is converted to alternating current (AC) by a Solar Inverter for use in premises. Excess electricity can be exported to the grid, generating additional savings through feed-in tariffs.
Is there any ongoing maintenance required with my
Solar Power System ?

Solar systems require minimal mechanical maintenance due to their lack of moving parts. Regular monitoring and occasional cleaning ensure optimal performance. Fallon Solutions offers on-call maintenance and yearly maintenance plans for comprehensive care.
What are the Government Rebates and benefits with Solar?

Government rebates are available in the form of Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs). These certificates can be traded to reduce system costs or assigned to a registered solar panel agent. STCs are based on the estimated electricity generation and can significantly offset installation expenses.
How does solar generate income?

Solar power reduces electricity bills by utilizing self-generated energy and selling excess power back to the grid. The feed-in tariff pays for surplus solar energy exported to the grid, contributing to overall savings.
Does aSolar System , really reduce my power bill?

The amount of savings depends on factors like system size, energy usage, and solar generation. Using solar power during daylight hours optimizes savings by reducing reliance on grid electricity.
