A1 Batterypro has been specializing in design and installation of house solar systems
since 2002. James Heel has been fully accredited in the design and installation
of Stand alone and Grid connect solar by the Govt body Business Council for Sustainable
Energy (BCSE). We have completed a number of new & upgraded installations on
either new or existing houses in which we have helped families achieve a more economical
alternative to grid connected power in remote areas. Our staff have a combined 18
years experience in working with customers to custom design and install solar power
based on each individual requirements.
Solar modules allow people to have power anywhere, anytime. The solar modules silently
convert the suns raw unlimited energy, to a clean and efficient usable energy source.
That energy is then stored in battery banks and then the inverters convert the energy
from DC to AC which then normal house hold 240V appliances can be used like normal.
- Saving money on electricity accounts. (with real benefits seen straight away)
- Reduction of Green House Emissions for your principle place of residence.
- Long warranties on Solar Modules & In-verters I.e.: 25yr manufactures Power
Warranty Grid Connect inverters up to 10yrs.
- By having Solar mounted on roof extra in-sulation against heat.
- Govt Rebates to Approved Applications.
- Local Support and troubleshooting.
Also from July 08 the Queensland Govt is offering a Return On Investment potential
for any Grid Connect Solar System. If the system produces more energy then what
the household energy consumption the Government will pay a credit of .44c/kilowatt
hour. It will total over a 12 month period and the credit will be in the form of
Direct Deposit or cheque.
There are 2 types of designs for Solar Powered houses. Both offer advantages and
applicable Govt Rebates if designed and installed by an accredited BCSE installer.
This system allows for the house to be connected up to grid power (Ergon Energy)
while having solar modules on the roof. The house uses power directly off the grid
like any other house and the solar modules put power back into the grid to offset
or totally negate your electricity bill. The house gets outfitted with a bidirectional
meter that keeps track of power consumed and power produced. This setup will also
be able to tell you how much energy produced for that hour and total energy produced
for the day. Through these meters you will be able to tell how much CO2 you have
saved for the environment. This system does not require a battery bank as mains
power is available.
Please note: If there is an outage in the main electricity supply then the house
will also lose power for the duration till mains power is back on. (This is an Australian
This system is designed for rural or remote houses that does not have access to
mains power. The system incorporates a battery bank and an inverter/charger. The
solar modules put charge into the battery bank and then the inverter converts the
charge to 240v mains so that normal house hold items can then work like normal.
This is ideal in cases where power poles and tree clearing would prove to be an
expensive exercise. The setup includes a set of meters that indicates state of
charge at battery bank & total power consumption and recovery each day. The
inverter will also allow the integration of a generator that will supply 240v to
run household appliances. The inverter will seamlessly change to being a charger
and help with the recovery of the charge in the batteries. All this will happen
without any power loss to the house.
