We perform rural solar installs in locations around the Central Coast, Newcastle, Port Stephens, and Hunter Valley.
Our solar panel systems are designed to address all rural challenges, including distance to the grid, Wi-Fi connection, roof orientation, installation location and even aesthetics.
For rural installs, we always create detailed system plans. This means that we’ll take a look at your electricity bill to determine the usage, your roofline, shading and roof orientation and whether or not you want feed tariffs from the grid.
In order to give you the most accurate quote, we always perform them in-person and never over the phone. Our in-person quotes for rural installs ensures that we have all the details about your solar energy needs and property before we price the system.
Each installation is completely customised by one of our highly trained staff, who will visit your property in person to make sure you get the performance you need out of your system.
Eligible systems receive free remote monitoring for the first six months after installation. Every three months after your installation, we will send you a detailed report on your system’s performance.
You will receive a locally sourced thank you pack upon completion of the installation. This includes drone footage of the project on a custom USB.
Our Specialised Solution Consultants will listen and answer your questions then organise a time to view the property. Once the Solution Consultant views your property and gets a solid idea of the type and size of the system you need, you’ll be provided with a personalised quote.
If you agree with your quote, sign up. Once we have received your accepted proposal and deposit or financing approval, our admin team will order your system and get the grid application submitted. We’ll also prepare any other paperwork that’s associated with your new system.
We’ll be in touch to schedule your solar install 2 to 3 weeks after we receive your deposit. Installation dates are usually scheduled the following week after we call or about a month after we receive your deposit. Weather, system install demand and other factors can affect this timeline.
You can expect our team at 7am, and we ask that someone is home so that we can get access to your manhole and wi-fi details. During the install, your electricity is isolated for four hours for safety reasons. Payment is due on the day of installation.
About three days after your installation, online system access is granted. Our administrative team will send off the meter change paperwork where allowed, if you need a meter change, and email you copies of all the warranty paperwork and system information.
If you need a meter change, you can expect it between 1 and 4 weeks after we submit the paperwork. It’s important to note that your energy provider will contact you about the timeframe and any associated costs. We do not change your electricity meter.
If you’re connected to the grid, you can help prevent power outages at your location by adding battery system with additional backup products. If your property is outside of the electrical grid, an off-grid system can ensure that you have clean, renewable power instead of constantly operating a gas or diesel-powered generator.
We have completed many projects in rural locations. Take a look at some of our work.
The size of the individual solar panels depends on the type. Our Solution Consultants can help you determine which type and size of panel is right your you based on how much electricity you need and the size of the area where the panels are to be installed.
If you need a battery installed on an existing solar panel system, please let us know. The specifics of this depend on how your current solar array is set up. Our Solution Consultants would be happy to listen to your needs and answer your questions.
You may be able to add more panels later. It depends on your system design, setup, and allowed capacity by the network provider. Please speak to one of our Solution Consultants about your specific solar panel system.
We source the solar panels for our rural installs from Australia, Singapore, China, Canada, South Korea, and the United States.
Rural and urban solar panel system installations are nearly the same. The primary difference between the two is the type of internet connection, if it’s available, and the cable distances needed. Rural locations can also often have the panels installed on the ground rather than on a roof.
We offer warranties between 10 and 25 years for all rural installations.
We take pride in our residential solar panel installations and our customers have given us great feedback. If you’re still not sure, take a look at what some of our clients have to say.
We strive to have all the latest accreditations with both the regulatory authorities and manufacturers.
