Solar Power

With its reliable hours of sunshine, Australia is the perfect place to go solar with your home or business.

Solar for Business

GEM Energy brings you turn-key solutions which include design, engineering, procurement, project management, installation, commissioning and asset management.

Solar for Homes

Quality components, affordable finance options and invaluable support. GEM Energy is your first choice for going Solar.

Solar for schools

Great opportunities for building real-life learning environments to teach about technology and sustainability, cutting power bills and creating extra earning potential.

Hybrid Solar

Gain more independence from rising energy prices by storing your electricity to use it at night and during peak times when it is most expensive.

Off-grid Solar

GEM Energy can provide your home or property with grid-like electricity where grid power is either unavailable or expensive to access, and set up remote and automated systems.

Solar Power – Overview

There is little doubt that the future of the Australian energy cycle lies in producing your energy during the day and storing it in a battery system to be used at night.

This will eliminate the need to draw much, if any electricity, from the grid. You could potentially save thousands of dollars per year from day one!

Each month, we assist dozens of households, businesses and other organizations with their energy efficiency needs, decreasing carbon footprints while increasing cash flow.

What To Know About Solar Panels & Inverters

Panels

Solar panels can either be polycrystalline or monocrystalline. The choice between mono and poly panels is usually not the most important consideration when choosing panels. What is important is that you buy a good module brand that will last 25+ years on your roof. There are a range of products to suit your needs from good quality budget brands to high quality premium brands. What we will always avoid are ‘no-name’ panels which are re-badged and are unlikely to last more than 3-5 years on an Australian roof. Our friendly consulting team will always help you choose the best equipment for your situation.

Inverters

The job of the inverter is to convert the DC electricity that the solar panels produce into 240V AC electricity, which is what everything in your home or business will use. The image above is a string inverter, which will sit in an inside area and will connect to the set of panels on your roof. Another piece of equipment is called a micro-inverter, which is attached behind the panels and will optimize each individually, resulting in more energy production. Inverters operate all day and are therefore more likely to wear out, so we usually encourage customers to invest in premium inverters.
