HOMe Solar Power,  PLUS battery ready.

Like all technology investments, deciding when to purchase is always difficult. Do I buy my system now, but have some new technology come along in the future which makes my investment obsolete. With PowerSmart you can rest easy because all our home solar power systems are designed to have batteries added in the future. Additionally solar panel technology has not changed significantly since the 1970's, although the price for solar panels has plummeted since 2007 when PowerSmart was founded. 

What we are seeing is major changes in battery storage technology with some early adopters installing home solar with battery systems (hybrid systems). The majority of people are still installing home solar power or grid connected systems with the ability to add battery storage at a later date when the price of batteries has dropped. We are expecting to see major changes in battery pricing over the next 3-5 years as we now have major competition in the market place from the likes of Tesla, Samsung, Panasonic, Enaphase and SMA.


How does a Home Solar power system work?

All home solar power systems work in the same way. Solar panels mounted on the roof of your home supply electricity to your house and when your solar panels don't provide you with enough electricity you draw power from the national grid (or power company). Likewise when your solar power system is producing to much electricity you can export it back to the grid resulting in a credit on your powerbill.

  1. Solar PV (photovoltaic) panels mounted on your roof capture the energy from the sun and convert this energy from the sun and convert this energy into DC electricity.
  2. A Solar Inverter converts this DC electricity into 230V AC electricity for use in your home.
  3. The Main Switchboard takes the electricity from the Solar Inverter and sends this electricity to power your home. If excess electricity is produced this is exported to the grid or if not enough is produced then electricity is imported from the grid to power you home - like at night. 
  4. All PowerSmart Home Solar Power systems are set up to have Battery Storage added in the future. 

Performance and warranties.

Our solar power systems use world-class Tier 1 solar panels and are some of the industry’s highest performers in terms of generation and efficiency and come with 10 year product warranty and 20 year performance warranties. Our inverters are all top performers manufactured in the USA and Germany and come with a minimum 5 year warranty. Additionally all our workmanship is guaranteed for five years to give you additional piece of mind. 


Solar Power System MONITORING

All our systems have the ability to have monitoring installed which allows you to see how your solar power system is performing. There are different options available and you are best to discuss thie with your renewable energy consultant.
