Frequently asked questions

How do I know what size system I need?

We can help you work that out with our Solar Savings Calculator, just fill the form and we'll email you back with an estimated size and savings/return on investment calculation. But as a rough indicator, see the following guidance:

  • 5.28 kW – Small-sized homes with 1-2 people and daily energy usage of (approx) 10-20 kWh per day

  • 6.6 kW – Small to average-sized homes 2-4 people, with a daily energy usage of (approx) 20-25 kWh per day

  • 9.9 kW – Average to large-sized homes with 4-5+ people and daily energy usage of (approx) 20-30 kWh per day

  • 12.87 kW – Large-sized homes with 5+ people and daily energy usage of (approx) 30-40 kWh per day

Can I buy a system outright?

Yes, you can and most people do. Depending on your requirements, a system may be $5000 or $15,000, but you have the choice to purchase up front if you have the capital.

How long will the system last?

The components in our systems come with long warranties (12 years). We also guarantee our workmanship for 10 years. However, it's not unusual that a system will last 20-25 years with very few problems.

What is the repayment period?

If you are buying outright, you can expect to have returned your investment within 3-5 years. If you will get finance, loan terms vary with each provider and financial product so you need to consult with the lender. However, typically these are around 3-6 years to repay.

What panels, inverters and batteries do you recommend?

We only install the best quality components. Check our products page to see which we recommend.

What happens if something goes wrong with the system?

All of our brands have a smooth customer service process and carry out repairs within Australia.

Shoalhaven Solar prides itself on our aftercare and customer service so we will, of course, take care of any liaising with manufacturers.

Are batteries worth it?

It depends. Read more in our Knowledge Base article When are batteries worth it? Solar energy battery viability.
