It was such a pleasure having Anthony and his Solar Vista team do such an amazing job. The expertise and care he showed for his workmanship were flawless. If you’re thinking about pulling the trigger on a solar set up stop waiting and get a quote from Anthony. The old-school bangers he belted out were an absolute bonus haha!

FAQs about Residential Solar Panel Installation

In Melbourne, residential solar panels can typically be expected to last between 25 to 30 years. However, several factors can influence their lifespan:

  • Panel quality: Higher-quality panels, often made with monocrystalline or multi-crystalline silicon, tend to last longer than those made with lower-quality materials.
  • Sunlight exposure: Panels that receive more direct sunlight exposure may experience slightly faster degradation compared to those in shaded areas.
  • Proper installation and maintenance: Following recommended installation practices and performing regular cleaning can help extend the lifespan of your panels.

It’s important to note that even after 25-30 years, your panels will likely still generate electricity, but their efficiency might gradually decline. Most manufacturers offer warranties covering power output for a specific period, usually around 25 years. This means the panels are guaranteed to produce at least a certain percentage (usually around 80%) of their original output during the warranty period.

If you’re considering solar panels for your Melbourne home, it’s crucial to choose high-quality products, proper installation and maintenance. This will help ensure you get the most out of your solar investment for years to come.

Different mounting options exist for various roof types and angles. Consult SolarVista on 1300 LUV SUN (1300 588 786) for a feasibility assessment.

Modern panels are sleek and unobtrusive, often blending well with most roof styles.

Some installers offer solar power purchase agreements (PPAs) where you pay for the energy produced, not the panels themselves.

Absolutely! Several financing options are available in Melbourne to make solar panels more accessible.

These include:

  • Government solar loans: The Victorian Government offers low-interest loans through its Solar Homes program, making repayments manageable.
  • Green loans: Many banks and lenders offer green loans specifically for energy-efficient upgrades like solar panels, often with favorable interest rates.
  • Solar power purchase agreements (PPAs): With PPAs, you lease the solar panels from an installer and pay for the energy they produce, avoiding the upfront cost.
