ABOUT SOLAR POWER
HOW SOLAR ENERGY WORKS
Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels on the roofs of homes and businesses use energy from the sun to generate electricity cleanly and quietly. The conversion of sunlight into electricity takes place in cells of specially fabricated semiconductor crystals.
While solar doesn't generate electricity 24/7, it provides energy when it is needed most – during the day and during hot sunny periods when the demand for power (driven by air conditioners, fans etc) is at its peak.
Another bonus of small-scale solar is that it generates electricity at the point of demand (i.e. where people live and work). This means that there is no need to transfer energy over long distances using expensive electrical infrastructure.
Australia is one of the sunniest continents in the world. Given a stable policy environment, there is massive potential for solar to make a significant contribution to electricity generation in Australia over the coming decades.
THE BENEFITS OF SOLAR ENERGY
Solar provides a significant saving on electricity bills
With rising power costs, more and more Australian households are making the switch to energy saving alternatives, such as solar PV systems and energy saving lighting. As electricity prices continue to increase (as fossil fuel prices rise), solar power becomes less expensive.
Solar energy is practically free
Once your Cosmic Energy Solar system has been installed, the sun's energy is absolutely free, allowing you to enjoy savings on your electricity bills. Better still, the potential exists for solar energy to cover 100% of your electricity needs, resulting in no power bills at all. Adding a solar system to your home also significantly increases its market value.
Sustain the future
In keeping with the philosophy of clean renewable energy, your new solar system has no moving parts, is silent to run, requires minimal maintenance (just clean it with water once a year) and has a very long service life.
Cosmic Solar makes it easy to choose the system that's right for you!
