10 years solar industry experience - Is Spring The Best Time To Install Solar Panels?As we head towards the end of not only another year but a decade, this is now the best time to install solar panels! But don’t just take our word as solar installers (with over 10 years experience).

If you’ve been researching a solar power system for your home, you may have heard about the government STC rebate. STC stands for Small-scale Technology Certificate, which can be claimed when  an eligible solar power system is installed, to receive a rebate.

What Do STC’s Have To Do With The Best Time To Install Solar?

STC rebate best time to install solar panels 300x123 - Is Spring The Best Time To Install Solar Panels?One of the reasons now is the best time to install solar panels is this government rebate is in the process of being phased out. Your eligible rooftop solar system would receive one STC for every estimated 1,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity it would generate until 2030.

However, the STC rebate is being gradually phased out with a reduction to the rebate coming into effect every January. So while the scheme is planned to be in place until the end of 2030, the earlier you take up the rebate, the more money you could save.

When Is The Best Time To Get Solar Panels Installed?

Did you know spring is actually one of the best times for your Solar Power System Installation?

Firstly, solar panels work on light not heat. In Spring here in South East Queensland and the Northern Rivers Region we have incredible sunny days with lower temperatures. These well sunny days without the scorching temperature can actually give you more power from your solar panels.

While we specifically sourced our range of panels such as LG NeON solar panels as they are designed for the harsh Australian climate, that simply means they are more durable. However, it is the months before and after summer that are the best time for your panels’ production.

Again, without the scorching temperatures of summer, you have the longer days  without air conditioners, extra fridges, holiday cooking or entertaining over the summer months.

In Conclusion

Getting installed before the new year ticks over will mean you are benefiting from a higher STC rebate. As solar panels work on light not heat, a sunny Spring day with lower temperatures can give you more power. You get the benefit of solar before the summer holiday madness kicks in and starts to use more of your solar output.
