With our households becoming more dependent on electricity, solar panels can reduce or even eliminate our energy bills. First Sun Solar helps homeowners to quantify the savings that can be made from a solar energy system and the investment required.
With Small scale Technology Certificates available to offset the cost of a new solar energy system, business owners can install a system on their own building or work with the building owner to establish a solar system to reduce electricity bills.
Ground Mount Systems
Depending on the land, whether it floods, soil type, area available and surrounds, panels can be positioned for maximum solar capture including the option to track the sun during the day for increased panel effectiveness.
Solar System Design
A critical element of any new solar energy system is an efficient design that is the best value for the site and budget. Many solar energy systems are poorly designed resulting in lower power output, insufficient battery storage, poor quality components or inability to manage future demands.
Solar Education Programs
Our team has been involved in several projects to identify households or commercial properties in communities that are interested in solar energy and guide them through the process to installation, ensuring that the system they have installed has been perfectly customised to their site, preferences and budget.
Financing a Solar System
Deciding to install a new solar energy system is a great initiative because it reduces your power bills, reduces carbon emissions and provides you with some energy independence at your location.

Delivered what we paid for in a very timely manner. Installation team was well-mannered, very efficient, and not even a screw left on site when the job was complete. Highly recommended!”

“First Sun Solar was recommended to us, our quote from Jeremy for a 10 Kw system was ridiculously cheap, everything was professionally handled from start to finish and we were always kept in the loop. Janet from administration was so helpful guiding us in changing the meters over as well .The 36 top of the range black panels on our roof blend in so well.”

Jeremy and his team were fantastic to work with and made the whole process a breeze.”
“I would recommend this company as I’ve had nothing but professional service.”

What is a feed in tariff?
This is the amount of money your energy retailer (AGL, Red, Origin etc) pays you per kWh (unit energy) of electricity you send back to the grid. The amount varies according to your region, your energy retailer and the plan you have. The rate can be anywhere from 0 to 18c per kWh but is typically around 10c. Your solar system will first supply electricity to your home, any excess power will be fed on to the grid and you will receive a credit on your electricity bill for each unit "sold" to the grid. (If you have a battery, excess power will be used to fill the battery with surplus once the battery is full being fed on to the grid).
How long will my Solar System last?
There are 4 main components to a solar system; the inverter that turns the DC power generated by the panels into AC power for your home and the grid, the electric cabling that brings the power from the panels down to the inverter and then on to the meterboard, the panels that convert sunlight into electricity and finally the mounting system that affixes the panels to the roof.
Most inverters come with a 10 year warranty (some are higher), the cabling comes with our 10 year workmanship warranty, the panels have 25 year performance warranties and structural warranties ranging from 10 - 25 years (most are 15 or 25 years these days) and the racking companies warranty their products for 10 years. Having said this; solar systems are simple electronically and are made to a high standard, you can expect a solar system to last 25+ years with occasional maintenance.
