Humankind can clearly say that technology took its greatest leap when electricity was invented. Without it, every invention we are now enjoying will not be possible. When electricity was invented, the public did not expect that many years later, the energy sources will be depleted and that the planet will suffer the consequence. This is why many are now getting aware and installing solar on the Gold Coast in order to cut down on electricity and to lessen carbon emission on their own little ways. When you decide to get one for your house, make sure to research about the different types and their pros and cons.

Basically, there are three types of solar panel for residential use – grid tied with batteries, grid tied without batteries and off grid system. The least common type is the grid tied with batteries because the system is expensive and not easy to install. Overlooking this, the system is very stable, it has financial incentives and it can be utilized during power cut.

Grid tied without batteries is the most common type used by residential properties nowadays. Aside from easy installation, the system is much cheaper compared to the previous because of few components. The system has financial incentives as well and in case the solar power is not enough during power cut, utility grid can be accessed.

The last type is the off grid which is quite common in remote rural locations not accessible to utilities. It is energy independent, can power the entire home and power outages will not be a problem. The downside is that it is more expensive than the former two options and installation is quite complex therefore this cannot be seen in major cities.

When you need solar on the Gold Coast, it is recommended to ask the professionals on the field rather than believe the advertisements that are going around. While you might be tempted to buy a solar system kit for your house, it might not be a good idea until you know for sure that the quality is good and that there will be no problems in the future.
