Solahart’s High Performance Solar Power Systems

Solahart was one of the first companies in the world to recognise the value of the sun’s free energy.

We pioneered solar water heating in Australia in 1953. Since then we have installed over 1 million systems in over 70 countries and have become a world leader in the field of solar energy.

Today our solar power PV systems are among the most efficient in the world, offering big energy savings to homeowners who switch to solar panels and energy free from the sun.

Our extensive network of Solahart Experts are qualified to assess your home and provide you with the best systems to meet your family’s needs. Our installers are trained to the highest standards to ensure the safety and effectiveness of your system.

All this is backed by our comprehensive warranties and the peace of mind you’ll get from dealing with Australia’s solar pioneer.

How Solar Power Systems Work

Solar PV systems generate electricity from sunlight. The solar panels are made up of many photovoltaic (PV) cells which collect the light from the sun and convert this into DC current. This is fed through an inverter and converted to 240V AC to power your home. The amount of electricity you can produce depends on the number of panels and their efficiency, the size of the inverter, the orientation of your roof and the amount of sunlight in your location.

Your home remains connected to the power grid so that when you generate more electricity than you need, you can feed it back into the grid. Alternatively, you can purchase more electricity from the grid when the sun’s not shining or when your system is not producing enough to meet your requirements.

What's right for me?

If you’re keen to reduce your energy use with solar power, then there are a few things worth considering.

Your Daily Power Usage Patterns

It is important that we install the PV system that best suits your needs. By looking at your recent power bills, your Solahart Expert will understand your daily power usage patterns and size the system that maximises savings. Further savings are possible by adding a Tesla Powerwall battery to store free power for use at night or when the sun’s not shining.

Your Roof Space and Orientation

Our smallest PV system needs just 10m² of roof space to generate around 30% of the average Australian household’s energy use. Larger systems will require over 30m² of roof space however they have the potential to significantly reduce your reliance on the grid. In Australia, PV systems are most efficient when installed on a North facing roof and as you move away from North the efficiency of the system is reduced.
