Heating water with regular hot water system in your home accounts for around up to 40% of your total household energy use. A solar hot water system from Modern can save up to $700 a year off electricity bills as well as reducing household carbon emissions by 25%. Good for both the environment and budget.
Hybrid solar systems combine the solar energy generated from traditional solar photovoltaic panels with excess energy stored into batteries. Also called BESS (Battery Energy Storage Systems), in the long term hybrid systems are more cost-effective that straight panel setups in the long term.
Over 20,000 Australians Choose Modern Solar Power Systems.
"The consultant from Modern went through everything in detail, answered all of our questions (even our silly ones) and came out at a time that suited us. I'd recommend Modern because of their service, professionalism, and expertise."
Gaye Miller, Pakenham VIC
"I don't think I'd have any hesitation about recommending Modern to anyone who wanted to switch to a solar system. The solar panels are quality and efficient - There are lots of lesser products from firms who haven't been around as long."
Peter Thompson, Sydney NSW
Why Go Solar?
Lower Bills, Better Environment:Solar power conversion means you can generate your own energy rather than paying for expensive electricity generated by fossil fuels from the power grid. Generating 'too much' solar energy is never an issue either - In fact, you can sell it back to the power grid for extra income. Solar power dramatically cuts your energy bills, while making the switch to solar power you can help reduce the impact of climate change and lead the way to a sustainable Australia.
Improve Home Value:Modern solar systems will start saving you money on your energy costs from the day they’re installed. Studies show that the installation of solar increases home value by 4 percent – an impressive number figuring that a $500,000 property will add $20,000 come auction day.
Sell Electricity Back to the Grid:When your solar power system generates excess power, this electricity can be fed back into the grid, effectively running your electricity meter backwards and saving you money. Many states have feed-in tariffs, which pay you multiple credits for each electricity unit fed into the grid from your solar system.
Shrink your Family's Carbon Footprint:Solar helps us all play our part towards improving the environment and lowering our emissions. You can genuinely contribute to the environmental wellbeing and future of Australia's renewable energy industry by converting to solar power.
Claim Government and Tax Benefits: The Federal Australian government offers support to both residential solar and commercial solar. Our solar installers can help talk you through the available government rebates to ensure you're maximising your potential return on the Renewable Energy Target (RET) scheme and other funding, such as the new small business tax breaks that can be used to install a solar system up to $20,000.
Solar Energy Technology has Come a Long Way: Modern use only advanced Tier 1 & 2 components & proven manufacturing processes for our solar arrays. This ensures Modern delivers the best mono-crystalline panels, inverters, mounting racks & cabling.
