Solar Experts in South West Victoria

Have you thought about the advantages of incorporating solar energy into your home or business’ electricity needs? Solar photovoltaic systems use special panels angled to capture the optimal amount of sunlight to convert the sun’s energy into renewable electricity. The solar system converts the sun’s energy for use by appliances in your home, and excess electricity is usually exported to the local electricity grid, thereby significantly lowering or eliminating your electricity bills altogether.

A typical Victoria household solar system can generate 45-90% of that home’s electricity and export up to 70% to the grid, not only reducing your electricity bills but also making money from the feed-in tariff. The southwest region is particularly suited to maximising solar energy, and Leahy’s Electrical Services has been delivering those benefits by designing, installing and maintaining solar systems in the community for many years.

Leahy's Solar Design and Installation

  • Whether you’re installing solar for your home, business or industrial site, Leahy’s will help you choose the proper system to reduce your costs and fit your unique energy needs. Our design teams have installed the following types of systems, even those requiring special considerations near the ocean:

    • Standard DC systems (grid-connected)
    • Ground mount systems (grid-connected)
    • AC enphase micro inverter systems (grid-connected)
    • Stand-alone systems (off grid)
    • Battery storage (hybrid grid connection)

Advantages of Adding Solar to Your Energy Portfolio

  • Reduce your carbon footprint significantly. 
  • The energy generated is clean and renewable, reducing the overall demand from less sustainable sources.
  • The more electricity your solar system provides, the less you’ll need to buy from your grid supplier. 
  • As fuel sources become more scarce, energy prices will increase. Your own power generation stabilises your future energy costs.
  • Surplus electricity feeds the electricity grid, adding renewable energy to your community’s energy profile and making money for you for your excess supply.
  • Leahy’s can match your system to applicable government rebates and other inducements to go clean.
  • Even top of the line residential solar systems can pay for themselves in 3 to 5 years and have earned homeowners as much as $50,000 profit over the life of the system.
  • Well-designed solar systems can increase the value of your property.
  • Many solar systems will make your site completely energy independent, negating the concern about outside factors disrupting operations.
  • Shifting your energy supply to renewable helps Australia achieve its Renewable Energy Target.
