There are plenty of different reasons why solar energy is so great. There are some financial benefits to solar, such as lowering your electric bill. There are some other benefits as well. Some people just like the idea of being more energy independent. They like that they don’t have to depend as much on the grid for their energy needs. But some of the best benefits of solar energy are environmental. Here are five of the environmental benefits of solar energy.

More Solar Ready To Help Power Pumping For SA Water

Article | April 29, 2021

SA Water’s electricity supply is about to become greener and cheaper again with the addition of another major solar power system, and an even bigger installation to soon follow. The utility says more 7,300 solar panels installed at the second pump station on its pipeline between Swan Reach and Stockwell are now connected and ready to go. “The Swan Reach to Stockwell Pipeline spans across more than 50 kilometres inland from the mighty Murray across to the northern Barossa area, and therefore requires significant energy to pump clean, safe drinking water across such large distances,” said SA Water’s Nicola Murphy While the total capacity of this new solar farm wasn’t provided, Ms. Murphy said it will generate approximately 5,224 megawatt hours of clean, green energy annually. There’s more solar energy to come for this section of pipeline, with a further 16,000 panels currently being connected at the first pump station.

How Much Solar Does My Business Really Need?

Article | April 29, 2021

Solar, it’s everywhere. You’ve probably already installed it at home and now you might be looking to invest in it for your business. Something we see far too often in the commercial space is overcapitalisation or oversizing. Our client’s often say, “but Time Solar Installers have offered me a 100kW system and you’re only providing a 75kW system” or “why haven’t you used my entire roof space?”. In this post I’ll explain the ins and outs of how we determine the size of a solar system for commercial businesses so that you’ll be equipped with the tools to ensure you’re not oversizing or over-capitalising!

Artificial Intelligence in the energy sector: opportunities and challenges

Article | April 29, 2021

AI is certainly the talk about the hour nowadays. In high-tech industry, AI is the one with most potential. But before proceeding and discussing further on this exciting technology, we’d like to first understand what AI means-: As power is being generated from more volatile sources like solar and wind, the requirement is that power generation must react intelligently to consumption (and vice versa). With AI, we can evaluate, analyse and control participants connected to each other via these smart grids. With modern day emphasis on climate changes and increasing pressure to reduce CO2 emissions, we must find ways to have most of our power generated from renewable resources. The problem with renewable sources of energy are that they are unpredictable, which makes production of energy periodical and sometimes even chaotic. With renewable sources, there can be power outages or too much power generation which needs to be controlled. Smart storage, also known as Intelligent Energy Storage(IES) can effectively handle these disrupt changes in power supply.

How smart solar inverters can save you money

Article | April 29, 2021

Traditionally, home solar inverters have had just one key function in support of your home solar installation: They convert the direct current moving out of your solar panels to alternating current your home appliances use. Over the past decade, inverter technology has advanced to add enhanced capabilities like data monitoring, communication, and executive functioning. In these ways, inverters have absolutely become more intelligent. These smarts don’t just help prevent blackouts, they can also save you a significant amount of cash over time. In this article, we introduce you to three ways a smart inverter can save you money: smart charging, standby mode and home energy monitoring.
