Why Go Solar?


Solar power is a simple idea with major benefits for you, your family and the environment. With rising electricity costs, solar makes sense for many families, businesses and industries. When you think about the cost of heating your house or running your air conditioning system, it becomes clear that solar power is one of the most cost-effective ways to cut your electricity bills. 

 Solar power also has several other advantages over standard grid electricity: 

 Energy independence – If you have limited grid supply or suffer from frequent power outages, solar can provide a secure source of electricity for your home. 

 Environmental responsibility – Solar is an eco-friendly alternative to coal and other fossil fuels, reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. 

 Improvement in value of your home – Installing a grid-tied solar system will improve the value of your home. This is especially true if you live in an area that could benefit from solar storage batteries (and even more so if they are installed as part of a range of energy efficiency measures). 

 A growing industry – Solar is an expanding industry, with new technology and innovation leading to better products at lower costs. 

With these incentives, now is a great time to get started on a solar system.

ABUNDANT

Enough sunlight reaches the earth in one hour to power the world for an entire year. Unlike the substantial resources and capital needed to extract and burn fossil fuels, anyone can purchase and get solar installed to take advantage of this abundance of light energy. 

SAVE ON POWER COSTS

Installing solar panels significantly reduces monthly electricity bills and dependence on the power grid. This energy independence protects against rising electricity costs and volatile fuel prices. With analysts forecasting continued increases in electricity rates, solar remains a cost-effective solution and long-term investment for the future.

INCREASE PROPERTY VALUE

Studies have shown properties with solar systems sell up to 20% faster and at a 17% premium compared to homes without solar systems. A solar installation makes your property more attractive to buyers, increasing its resale value.

REDUCE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT

Unlike energy generated by fossil fuels, solar doesn't release harmful Co2 emissions. Sustainable carbon-free solutions such as solar are crucial to slowing the pace of climate change and preventing further damage to the environment.

 

HOW SOLAR WORKS

Solar PV panels capture sunlight, causing electrons in the panel's silicon cells to release energy that becomes direct (DC) electricity.

An inverter converts the DC into AC electricity, making it usable for homes and businesses.

Excess electricity can be stored in batteries or fed back into the power grid

Additional electricity can be pulled from the grid if you need more power than your solar panels can generate.

SOLAR POOL HEATING

Heliocol solar panels are installed on your roof in a sunny position. Your pool water is pumped through hundreds of tubes in the collectors where it absorbs the sun’s heat. This heated water is then returned to the pool for your enjoyment.

Drain Down Protection

The vacuum valve allows the water to drain down to the pool during periods of low radiation or when the pool reaches your target temperature. This mechanism prevents the possibility of boiling or frost in the solar collectors.

Fully Automated, Easy to Use

Simply set the Target Temperature and the Heliocol controller will do the rest…It is simple to set and adjust for individual needs and comes with a bio-safe winter function.

Design Options to Suit

Solar Pump

This is the most common configuration. The Heliocol controller turns on the solar pump whenever heat is available. Solar pump is programmed to maximise system performance.

Motorised Valve

Heliocol has the lowest pressure drop of all solar panels. It often allows only the existing pool pump to circulate the pool water via the solar array. The beauty of this configuration is the simplicity and the virtually NIL running costs

Combined System

Heliocol can work in conjunction with other heaters such as Gas, Heat Pump or Diesel, with no need for expensive modification or refurbishments. The Heliocol fully automated combined controller will manage the solar activity and the auxiliary heater to minimise usage of fossil fuels and maximise your comfort.
