Autumn – A Great Time For Solar Electricity Generation

National solar provider Energy Matters says autumn is a great time for solar – with cool days and clear skies, solar power systems will be operating at optimum efficiency.

One of the many myths about home solar power is that the hotter the day, the more electricity is produced. In fact, it’s the opposite.

Heat is the enemy of solar panels – it reduces efficiency and the lower the quality of a panel, the less power it will generate on a hot day. The heat issue is an example of why not all solar panels are equal. However, the length of sunlight exposure over the longer summer days goes some way to addressing this issue.

Autumn is probably the best time of year in terms of power generated per sun-hour – the cooler conditions allow panels to achieve their best efficiency.

To help more Australian households go solar this autumn, Energy Matters has announced its best pricing ever on system installed in all states. All systems have been heavily discounted for a limited time and this week the company is showcasing a full 5kW solar package.

The 5kW system can return a financial benefit of an estimated $1,042 – $2,450 annually depending on installation location and electricity consumption profile; meaning payback time can be just a few years.

Like all Energy Matters’ packages, professional, accredited installation is included. The package also includes an extra 5 years warranty on the included Italian-made Power-One inverter.

Special pricing on other solar panel packages can be viewed using the company’s instant online quoting system, or by calling the Energy Matters team on 133-SUN (133 786).

Energy Matters has installed over 15,000 solar power systems across Australia. Between Energy Matters and sister company Apollo Energy, the two have supplied over 300,000 solar panels for commercial and residential installations.
