Solar Panel Installation & Maintenance Canberra & Queanbeyan
Complete Electrical Service has been a trusted name for Canberra electrical services for over 40 years. We never stop striving for excellent service and customer satisfaction, which is why we are excited and proud to be offering solar energy solutions to the Canberra region. We are dedicated to pushing the envelope on training and innovation to provide our customers with the modern solutions they need for our ever-changing environment.
Having solar widely available across the ACT is just common sense. Just about everyone has access to the sun for free, on home rooftops, sheds, and even on the ground for caravans on the go.
Canberra also has the most stringent energy standards for new and established homes with some of the most ambitious energy targets in Australia so getting those star ratings up and emissions down are high on the list of priorities for anyone looking to sell their home in the future.
Our solar services include the purchase and installation of solar panels and converters as well as additional solar starter packs to reduce your energy bills and contribute to a cleaner, healthier planet.
With so much of Australia’s energy resources exported to other countries, it’s important to have a power source you can tap into and enjoy right from your own rooftop. By reducing your dependence on the grid you not only save money, but also ensure you have some independent energy on tap during the day. Matching that with smart appliances gives you the ability to run your dishwasher, washing machine and dryer on your solar conversions, even when you are at work.

What Is Solar Power?
Solar energy is created using heat and light from the sun. Solar power is the term used once that energy has been converted into electricity that is compatible with your home electronics, hot water and heating needs.
Thanks to greater research, technology and innovation, as well as mass production, solar power is becoming more affordable, more efficient and more reliable than ever before.
Solar power is growing in importance due to being one of the cleanest sources of energy available. Unlike other energy types, such as carbon fuels, which consume natural resources, release emissions when converted and require energy and resources to harvest and transport, solar gives homes reliable access to free energy right from a local source.
As well as a growing population, Australian homes are padded for comfort during times of heat and cold, catering to an ever-growing need for new and advanced home technologies and more connected lifestyles. All this means we are consuming more electricity than generations in the past, putting a strain on an ever diminishing volume of resources and contributing to disastrous planet-wide pollution.
How Does Solar Energy Work?
There are two different ways that solar energy is harvested. The most common type, especially for household use, is Solar Photovoltaic – you will see this referred to as solar PV when you are researching solar solutions for your home.
To harvest solar energy a semiconductor cell or solar PV cell is used. This is the working element of standard rooftop solar panels. The PV cell is encased in glass and secured in an aluminium frame so it is durable and weatherproof when mounted on your roof.
You will need a converter installed with your solar panels to transform the raw energy (Direct Current) into a 240V AC current that can be used throughout your home.
How much power you receive is determined by the number of panels, the direction and position they have, the level of sunlight available and also the quality of the panels. There are a range of different PV panels to choose from which help reduce the costs and offer a wider range of choices. The panel number and quality you choose will depend on your budget and what you want to achieve from a solar installation. You can also start small and build a bigger solar network down the track.
What are the Benefits of Solar?
Solar panels don’t need anything else to generate electricity, not even water, so they are sustainable. As well as being durable and efficient, their energy is abundant; the more sun they get, the more power they produce. They harvest and convert power without releasing anything harmful into the environment, and best of all, the sun is steamed directly to your home for free.
No matter how big or small your solar package is, you won’t be disconnected from traditional power. Any solar electricity you produce that your home can’t use is transferred back to the grid to be used by others in your neighbourhood. You’ll be given credit for the energy that services providers use from your home, providing even bigger energy savings. You also are able to draw power when you need it, for example, in the evening and night when your solar isn’t drawing power.
We can also keep you informed of the current government solar energy grants you can use to make green energy affordable and achievable.
