Factors Effecting Solar Power Production

The total amount of power your solar system generates depends on three things which include: location, positioning, and quality. Locations that receive large amounts of sun with less cloud cover are optimal. However, if you’re located in a less sunny area, you can still reap the benefits of a solar system if you purchase the right equipment such as power optimisers.

Billing Cycle 

No matter the size of the solar system, the amount you get back depends on the amount of electricity you use and when you use it. If you use most or all your solar power during daylight hours, you will get most of your money back. This is due to the amount received from your feed-in-tariff (exported power to the grid) as it cost significantly less than the amount you pay to buy electricity from the grid. Subsequently, the more solar power you use, the more you will save.
