The Benefits of Going Solar

Reduce your energy bills today

Solar is a great way to reduce your energy bills and your reliance on energy companies by harnessing the sun’s free energy. At Solahart, we have been delivering hot water FREE from the sun to households around the world for over 65 years, and since then, our range has expanded to include solar power and battery storage technology.

Replace your old gas or electric water heater with a Solahart solar water heater and you could save up to 65%* of your hot water energy use. Install a Solahart PV system to provide power to your home and supplement this with a battery to store free power for use at night or when the sun’s not shining. Any surplus power can then be fed back into the grid.

Because Solahart provides all three solutions, you will get unbiased advice on the best system for your needs. We also insist our dealers and installers are fully trained to ensure a quality installation.

We also have an extensive range of commercial solutions for businesses trying to reduce their energy bills, particularly those where a lot of hot water or power is used during daylight hours.


A more sustainable future

Switch to a Solahart solar water heater and save up to three tonnes of carbon emissions per year, which is equivalent to taking a small car off the road. Install a Solahart PV system to enjoy more independence from the grid and then add a Tesla Powerwall battery for a complete solution. Our goal is to help you make the decision on which solar solution best suits you, to not only save you money but also reduce your carbon footprint and live a more sustainable lifestyle.

Take advantage of Government incentives

The great news about residential and commercial solar is that the Government has included both solar hot water and PV as technologies which are eligible for incentives known as Small-Scale Technology Certificates (STCs), which are linked to Australia’s Renewable Energy Target (RET). The value of STCs fluctuate depending on market factors; however, are currently worth over $1,000 for a typical solar water heater and up to $4,000 for a large residential PV system. In commercial applications, the incentive increases significantly, as systems go up in size. These incentives are generally paid as a point of sale discount, thus greatly reducing the up-front cost of going solar – your local Solahart dealer will be able to provide all the information you need during a free on-site solar assessment.

Increase the value of your home

The majority of Australians believe solar power-equipped homes are more valuable than those relying on traditional means of electricity according to research conducted by a leading real estate online website in 2015. There are many other studies done here in Australia and around the world that support this research and although the value is not quantifiable, you would imagine a home with PV or solar hot water would be more saleable than a similar property which is not as energy efficient or eco-friendly. Installing a Solahart solar solution means the home has the added benefit of a brand with over 60 years' experience in solar for even more peace of mind.
