The world is needing to move in the direction of renewable energy if we are to address the current climate change scenario. Australia is in the privileged position that we have lots of land and plenty of sun, so solar for most seems like a no-brainer.
Australians have really jumped on the bandwagon, with the greatest uptake of rooftop residential solar systems per capita than any other country in the world. This is due to two primary factors: the desire to reduce energy costs, and the desire to reduce personal emission contributions. Both of these desires can be addressed by installing a quality solar PV system. For Aussies wanting to be self-sufficient, batteries can be integrated into a system meaning that unused power during the day can be used at night rather than being fed back into the grid.
Huglo entered the market at an important point – when interest in solar installation was piquing and solar installers were in a race to the bottom, installing the cheapest possible system for the cheapest possible price. This often means that customers get a system that isn’t suited to their needs and may perform sub-optimally. Cheaper systems installed by less qualified installers will likely be riddled with issues and not do the job they’re expected to do – to generate electricity efficiently!
The team here at Huglo focuses on designing solar PV systems so they’re exactly to your needs – nothing more and nothing less. We call it the Goldilocks Zone. With advanced satellite technology, we are able to fit some of the market’s best performing solar panels and inverters to your home remotely, and send these over to you for your reference.
Once you are ready to go, we will send a dedicated team on-site to install the system, making sure to iron out all the kinks and make getting setup a breeze. Every step of the way is handled by our local Australian team and we’re here to ensure that all of your concerns are addressed and your questions answered.
If you are one of the many solar system owners who does not have a battery (let’s face it, they are a bit exxy right now!) then the solar feed-in-tariff (FiT) is an important consideration. Huglo offers ongoing monitoring of every retailer’s FiT and make recommendations on when to switch and who to switch to in order to maximise your returns.
The federal government offers what is known as the small-scale technology certificates or STC Scheme, whereby the government offers discounts based on the size of your household system to encourage the uptake of solar technology. Huglo’s prices already factor in this STC discount when we quote.
The value of the STC will vary depending on a few different factors, but a good yardstick is around $500 per kilowatt (kW) installed. Most homes in Australia have a system ranging from 2-6kW, so the discount applied would be between $1000-$3000.
Anyone can claim the STCs as long as they meet the following criteria:
• Your solar system needs to be smaller than 100kW (for scale, the Woolworths Moree has a 99.97kW system so your home will suit!)
• Your system is installed by a Clean Energy Council (CEC) accredited professional
• The panels and inverters are approved by the CEC, which is all that Huglo installs
