Installing a solar + battery system will give you many benefits, including energy independence. However, you may be wondering when is the best time to install your system. A range of factors will determine the best time to install - we'll examine the most important ones you need to keep in mind.


When is solar demand highest?

Demand for solar energy is at its peak in summer. With so much sunlight, it's no surprise that people are reminded of the benefits of solar energy. Warmer temperatures mean higher electricity bills, highlighting the potential savings potential of solar + battery systems. As a result, installers are busiest during the summer months, and increased demand can cause considerable wait times or delays. An increase in solar demand can also affect supply, causing wait times for panels, batteries or inverters.

To mitigate these risks, it is best to install a solar + battery system during the winter months. People often think this means they won't start reaping the benefits of the system until the warmer months, but that's not true! In Western Australia, there is plenty of sunshine throughout the winter months, making solar + batteries a viable, affordable and clean source of energy for your home.

Do solar panels work well in winter?

It is a common misconception that solar panels do not work properly during the winter due to cooler temperatures. In fact, solar systems generate electricity from light rather than heat. While Australian winters can be cold, there is still plenty of sunshine throughout the day. Solar panels are designed to absorb sunlight, providing energy and potential savings year-round.

How many hours of sunlight do solar panels need?

It is widely believed that solar panels need constant sunlight to generate electricity. However, solar panels only need a few hours of direct sunlight each day to generate enough electricity to meet your needs. Four hours is optimal, but some panels are more efficient or have optimizers installed to make the most of limited sunlight. These few hours of direct sunlight are known as peak sunlight hours. In Australia, solar panels typically receive an average of seven hours of peak sunlight per day. If you're in Perth, July averages a minimum of five to six hours of sunshine per day, which is enough time to generate your own solar power, recharge your solar batteries and significantly lower your electricity bills.

What are the incentives for installing a solar + battery system?

Each country may have corresponding subsidies for solar energy systems, and we need to carefully understand our market. There are many benefits to going solar beyond government rebates, especially when you combine solar with batteries. Think energy independence, preventing blackouts and saving a lot on your electricity bill, and more.

Should I buy solar now or wait?

You can have a state of the art solar + battery system any time of the year. The point is, the sooner you install solar, the sooner you can reap the benefits. Unfortunately, the upfront cost of a high-quality solar + battery system can be high, which is a hurdle for many who want to benefit now. With energy costs constantly rising, the longer you wait to switch to solar, the more potential savings you miss out.
