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 works

Solar power systems generate electricity from sunlight, using solar panels made up of many photovoltaic (PV) cells that collect the light from the sun and convert it to DC current.

The DC current is then is fed through an inverter and turned into usable electricity (240V AC) to power your home, greatly offsetting your electricity costs by minimising the amount of power you consume from the grid. The amount of electricity you produce depends on the number of panels you install, their efficiency, the size and quality of the inverter, the orientation of your roof and the amount of sunlight available in your location.

Your home remains connected to the power grid so that when you generate more electricity than you can consume, you can feed it back into the grid. You will also be able to purchase electricity from the network when the sun is not shining or when your system is not producing enough to meet your requirements.

Solahart Solar Panels

Before we include them in our range, our panels are tested for optimum performance and efficiency using solar panel flash test data and Electroluminescence (EL) imaging. We only select panels that are proven to be resistant to Potential Induced Degradation (PID) and Light Induced Degradation (LID), with state-of-the-art cell technology for excellent performance under real conditions and anodised frames built to withstand extreme weather conditions.

We have a range of solar panels to suit your needs, including our Solahart Silhouette panel with an all-black stylish appearance. Ask us about our range.

 

Introducing Solahart Silhouette solar panels

Our unique high-performance Solahart Silhouette panel, with stylish all-black appearance, is the ideal solution for Australian homes thanks to its innovative and premium cell technology. And because they’re from Solahart, Australia’s trusted name in solar for over 65 years, you can be sure of worry-free, trouble-free energy for years to come.

Designed in Germany and built to withstand the harshest Australian conditions ensuring an incredibly low rate of panel degradation. In fact, their output is guaranteed to be at least 85% of the nominal power for up to 25 years, which means you’re sure to enjoy energy free from the sun, for years to come.

The rear surface of every cell within a Solahart Silhouette has been treated with Passivated Emitter and Rear Cell (PERC) technology so that they work like household mirrors. Rays of sunlight that would otherwise be wasted reflect through the panels to generate more electricity and increase your panels’ efficiency per surface area. This guarantees high performance under real conditions, with exceptional low-light and high-temperature behaviour. This means high yields are produced throughout the day, even in periods of low radiation intensity including early morning and late afternoon; and even on hot days, these panels produce more reliable yields than standard solar power panels. 

Tough enough to handle cyclones.

At Solahart, we go to extreme lengths to guarantee the safety and reliability of every system we sell.

Our Solahart Silhouette Solar Power Panels are tested by the Cyclone Testing Station at James Cook University in Townsville and are capable of withstanding cyclonic wind loads in all regions of Australia. They’re even strong enough to have survived cyclones similar to Cyclone Larry in 2006, and Cyclone Yasi in 2011.

For your ultimate peace of mind, Solahart Silhouette panels go through four levels of quality testing before they get to you.

We start with IEC Certification, an internationally recognised panel check. Panels are then quality tested through VDE, an independent authority considered the gold standard for European auditing and testing authorities. Further testing continues in both regular Factory-Quality tests, and the Solahart Quality Program, developed by Solahart R&D in Australia. These tests include an analysis of solar panel electrical data and checks for micro-cracks to ensure your panels are problem-free and deliver all the power you’ve purchased.

Our Inverters

Inverters are considered to be the 'brains' or the engine room to your solar power system. Their primary function is to convert the direct current (DC) output into alternating current (AC). AC is the standard used by all home appliances.

Your inverter needs to provide efficiency and reliability so you can get the most power out of your PV system. That's why Solahart only selects inverter suppliers that we can trust.

Before releasing new models into our product range, we thoroughly check certifications and performance data from the manufacturer and perform our own field tests to ensure quality and reliability. Plus, all our inverters come with a Solahart Warranty – for extra peace of mind.

Energy Storage

In most Australian homes, a large proportion of the energy produced by solar power panels is sent back to the grid because it’s generated when it’s not needed, i.e. the middle of the day. However, adding home battery storage to a new or existing solar power system allows you to store your unused energy to use:

  • At night
  • On low sunlight days
  • When utility rates are more expensive
  • During blackouts

Battery storage is a smart way to offset your electricity costs as you maximise your solar energy usage and minimise your reliance on the grid.

Residential battery storage solutions to suit your needs

When combined with a new or existing solar power system, batteries allow you to maximise the use of your solar power by storing excess electricity produced during the day for use at any time.

You can reduce your reliance on power from the grid and lower your power bills even more.

Solahart can help you choose the configuration that best suits your needs.

Batteries in our range include:

  • Tesla Powerwall 2,
  • LG Chem and
  • BYD modular batteries

Solahart PowerStore also fits into the Energy Storage category.

Home Energy Management Systems (HEMS)

Installing solar is a smart way to reduce your energy costs, and create a more sustainable lifestyle. And now, there’s a new way to get more out of your solar system by making it even smarter: The Solahart Gateway.

Introducing the amazing Solahart Gateway

Solahart Gateway is an intelligent communications hub that monitors the solar power you generate, and the energy you consume. It identifies household appliances and habits that use large amounts of electricity and shows you when you’re generating the most solar energy.

By adjusting your energy usage behaviour and shifting loads away from expensive peak times, you can maximise the use of your solar energy and further reduce your energy costs.

Add a Solahart Gateway to any solar system

The Gateway can minimise the overall cost of energy by storing your solar energy in a Solahart PowerStore® hot water system, battery storage system, or by using the Solar Scheduling to intelligently turn on devices when there is excess solar production.

Future-proof your solar power system

Because a Solahart Gateway is cloud-adaptable, you can take advantage of up-coming technologies as they become available.

  • Control and co-ordinate major household appliances
  • Purchase additional power at the lowest tariff rates
  • Obtain regular weather updates to help manage your power
  • Determine when to run large household appliances

Did you know?

Water heating is the second largest household energy user comprising approximately 25% of the average Australian household’s energy use*.
So, when it comes to selecting solar technology, it makes sense to start by reducing the amount of energy required by your home by installing a solar water heater.

The great thing about heating your water with the sun is that you will also be helping the environment. Did you know that a Solahart solar water heater can help you save up to 1.6 to 2.7 tonnes of carbon emissions per year? 

Compared to solar power panels, solar hot water technology uses collector panels that are much more efficient per square metre. In fact, solar water heater collectors take up about ⅓^ of the roof space needed for a PV system that would produce an equivalent amount of energy. So, if your roof space is limited and you’re looking to maximise your solar production, choosing a solar water heater makes a lot of sense.
