Install Solar Panels Today For Clean, Renewable & Cost- Effective Energy!

Solar power is the key to a clean energy future and for good reason. Every day, the sun gives off far more energy than is needed to power everything on the planet, and unlike fossil fuels, it will not run out anytime soon.
Solar power is a renewable energy source and the only limitation is our ability to turn it into electricity in a cost-effective and efficient way. In Australia, solar power is growing in terms of popularity and as of Q3 2020, there were over 2.56 million solar panel installations throughout the country with a combined capacity greater than 18.5 Gigawatts.

At GCR Electrical Systems, we are committed to offering the best solar solutions to our clients throughout Hervey Bay and surrounding areas. If you are looking into solar as a viable energy source, you should get in touch with us today!

Why Choose GCR Electrical Systems?

Types Of Solar Power Systems We Install

At GCR Electrical Systems we offer these 3 types of solar power systems:

Grid-Tied Systems

The grid-tied solar power systems are some of the most common home solar power systems in Australia. They comprise of rooftop solar panels that produce DC power along with inverters responsible for converting that power into AC power that can be used to operate household electronics and appliances.

Excess solar energy generated during the day by the grid-tied systems flows back into the grid. During the night or at times when solar production is low, your property will be powered by the grid. However, grid-tied solar power systems don’t provide backup power if the grid unfortunately goes out.

If you would like a grid-tied solar power system installed on your property, you should look no further than GCR Electrical Systems.

Hybrid Systems

Hybrid solar power systems are virtually the same as grid-tied systems, but the key difference between the two is that they include a battery for storing excess energy produced by the solar panels not used by your house. When the solar production is low, you can use the energy stored in the battery as opposed to drawing from the grid.
Homes that have hybrid solar power systems installed usually have backup power in case of a grid outage, which makes them a popular option in areas that experience power outages frequently. If you believe that the hybrid solar power system is what you need, you shouldn’t hesitate to get in touch with GCR Electrical Systems to schedule a free consultation to discuss your options.

Off-Grid Solar Systems

Off-grid solar power systems aren’t connected to the electric grid at all. That means that solar panels and batteries must meet all your power needs. Such systems tend to be more expensive as more solar panels and energy storage solutions are needed to cover all your usage since the grid cannot be used during times of low solar production.
Designing an off-grid solar power system means that you have to strictly measure and control loads and have some kind of backup generator. Fortunately, this is something that GCR Electrical Systems is more than equipped to handle.
We are able to install quality, durable and reliable off-grid solar power systems.

Our Solar Power System Installation Process

Step 1: Consultation

When you first get in touch with us, we will discuss your energy needs and answer any questions you have. Once we have a good understanding of your electrical usage, we will then analyse the data and measure the available roof area using a variety of tools.

Step 2: Estimate

We will then design a system that fully meets your energy needs and budget while meeting the government requirements. We first provide you with a rough estimate of the system costs and often present different options that can meet your energy requirements and budget.

Step 3: Site Assessment

If the rough estimate we provide is within your budget, we will
arrange a site visit to determine whether there are any issues with shading or your electrical panel’s capacity. After the site visit, we can provide you with a firm quote for a solar power system.

Step 4: Installation

We will then secure the necessary electrical permits and work with your utility company’s inspectors to ensure a smooth installation. Our skilled technicians will install the system in an efficient and professional manner using the highest quality components.
