Brisbane solar batteries of the future of renewable energy

Enjoy power savings day and night by adding a battery. Not only will solar panels and a battery add value to your home, they help minimize your power bills and make you less reliant on the grid. Touted as the future of electricity, batteries allow solar power generated during the day to be stored for use at night time or on cloudy days when solar panels cannot generate electricity. In fact, adding a battery to a residential solar system can double the amount of self-generated electricity consumption.

The Electric Vehicle (EV) revolution is gaining strength in Australia. Are you EV ready?

Did you know that over 50% of Australians intend to purchase an EV in the next 5 years? Installing a home battery gives you the flexibility to either sell your stored electricity back to the grid or charge your EV overnight (whichever option works better for you depending on feed-in-tariff, lifestyle, etc.). Over 5000 public EV chargers will be rolled out across the country, meaning you will not only be able to charge your car at home, but also on the road as you go. The EV revolution is here!

Brisbane and QLD solar facts

state solar statistics

QLD Emissions vs Other States

Australia’s total greenhouse gas emissions was 535 million tonnes CO2-e in 2017. With 153 million of that total, QLD tops all the state and territories as being the most polluting in the country.
In 2020, renewable energy was responsible for 16.6% of Queensland’s total electricity generation. This is the second lowest proportion for any state or territory (with NT being the lowest). Though, there are many wind and solar farms proposals that will inject renewable energy into the grid.
You can join the many Queenslanders that are choosing to do their part for the environment, whilst saving money in the process, by installing solar!


QLD Total Net Emissions

The Australia Government calculates Queensland’s greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) as part of their national reporting to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Queensland’s total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2016 was 153 MtCO2e.
Emissions from electricity generation and usage (which falls under Stationary Energy) accounted for 48.1% of all GHG at 76.66 MtCO2e. This is a worrying figure as the emissions from electricity generation and usage has been steadily growing every reporting year.
