History of the use of Solar roof tile in Australia and future trends

Interest in solar energy has been on the rise in Australia since it was first introduced in the 1970s. These early installations were a response to the 1973 oil crisis and they were mainly used for hot water systems. Today, Australians are still keen to use solar power and avoid the high price of using grid electricity. Solar roof tiles are a great solution for generating free, clean energy from renewable sources. Solar systems are here to stay for the long term as more and more people look to help reduce Australia's dependence on fossil fuels. 

Homeowners and designers are becoming more energy efficient and people are seeing the value of installing solar roof tile systems in their homes. Some real estate agencies report that homes with solar systems are selling 20% faster than homes without solar roof tile systems. This fact shows that solar energy is highly valued by most homeowners. In Australia, more than three million homes have solar systems and the government is constantly looking for ways to encourage people to install new solar systems. Meanwhile, when most people choose a roof tile for their home, they want something that combines energy efficiency, durability and longevity. Solar roof tiles are an intriguing development in the solar industry. If you are considering installing solar panels on your home, solar roof tile or integrated roof panels may be the best option for you.

BIPV solar roof tiles and panels are only going to become more common in Australia as solar panels become more popular as a way to reduce your electricity bills.

How much maintenance do I have to do on my solar panel?

Solar panels require little maintenance. Solar panels last at least 25 years, while the inverter lasts 10-12 years. This inverter will therefore have to be replaced halfway through its use. It is advisable to clean the solar panels once in a while, so that optimal solar energy can be generated.

If I have solar panels installed, can I also use them in the winter?

Solar panels use the light from the sun to produce electricity. Every day it gets light and the sun shines every now and then, so your solar panels also provide energy in the autumn and winter period. In these months, less is generated compared to the spring and summer months.

If I get a fire from my solar panels, what should I do? Is the installer liable?

The chance that a fire will start due to a solar power system is very small (0.0023%). Who can be held liable in such a case differs per situation. If it turns out that the installer has been negligent in the installation of the solar panels, the installer is liable. If you have solar panels installed, it is wise to take out building insurance.

What happens if I generate more solar power than I use?

If you generate more than you consume, you can feed it back to the electricity grid, for which you receive a compensation. This makes the netting arrangement in the Netherlands possible.
