How much will it cost?
Better technology means costs have come down significantly and payback period now significantly shorter (typically 7-9 years).
Example of how much you can save
This example uses a typical family home that has a $201 power bill in a month. They have installed a 3.7kW Harrisons Solar Power System that has 10 premium Q Cells long-lasting and high power solar panels with a top-quality Fronius inverter.
Their power bill has been slashed monthly - even more, as retail power prices continue to rise, they are saving $50,129 over the 25+ year performance life of the system.
Net financial impact
This quailty Harrisons Solar Power system will pay for itself after 6.6 years. Meaning from 6.6 years onwards you are getting free power for the rest of the life of the system.
Save the planet, as well as your wallet
Here is a typical environmental footprint of a 3.7kW Harrisons Solar Power System.
This is an example only generated from "OpenSolar"software using a low energy user, not to be relied upon as individual circumstances vary. Considers a standard 3.9% increase in energy cost each year, due to trends in the raising cost of energy. This estimate is based on your selected preferences, current energy costs and the position and orientation of your roof to calculate the efficiency of the system. Projections are based on estimated usage of 12000 kWh per year, assuming low user Electricity Tariff. Electricity tariff rates may change as a result of installing the system. You should contact your electricity retailer for further information.
System Performance Assumptions: System Total losses: 16.6%, Inverter losses: 2.9%, Optimizer losses: 0%, Shading losses: 0%, Performance Adjustment: 0%, Output Calculator: PVWatts v6. Panel Orientations: 10 panels and Slope 20. Estimates do not include replacement costs of equipment not covered by a warranty. Components may need replacement after their warranty period.
Choose long lasting quality equipment
Choosing high-quality panels with a 25 year Performance Warranty, like Q Cells, will mean the panels will last longer, and the savings are higher. There is also less risk of anything going wrong that would cause replacement costs, or worse, damage to your home.
While most solar panels today have efficiencies starting from 15%, Q Cells new Q.Tron panel reaches 22.9% max efficiency. So with Q Cells, there is peace of mind that year after year the system generates what you’ve paid for.
