Abundant sun and local expertise mean great cost savings are there to be had right now. But if you need us to shine more light on some of the location-specific reasons to take a solar journey in South Australia, read on.
Adelaide is an absolute sun trap.
We all know and love Adelaide for its hot, dry summers. In fact, Adelaide receives a LOT of sun throughout the year making it one of the sunniest capitals in Australia.
We get up to seven hours of sunshine, on average, every day, except for the winter months.
The best months for solar production are November, December, January and February, all of which should produce over 7 sun hours on average with an optimally installed solar system.
The bottom line is that, for between nine and 10 months of the year, Adelaide basks in sun.
What’s that saying… ‘Make hay while the sun shines’ - great advice if you live in Adelaide!
Adelaide receives a lot of sun throughout the year however, during our mild winters, when days are shorter, the average hours of sunshine drops a couple of hours, to five hours a day.
Some solar systems can generate twice the electricity in summer that they generate on the shorter days of winter. Between May and June, Adelaide receives slightly more than 5 average sun hours.
But, even in an Adelaide winter, there is still more than enough sun to generate renewable energy.
Why? Because solar panels work on light, not heat.
This means solar power is generated all year, including the three months of the year when we enjoy our mild winters.
So, you can still ‘make hay’ even if the sun isn’t shining.
All you need is daylight and some help from Exceed Solar and within no time, you’ll be utilising this silent, non-polluting source of energy that continually renews itself.
Exceed Solar panels and inverters harness the sun’s energy all year-round and use it to generate power to run your home or business.
It really is a no-brainer: Adelaide receives give you all the sun you need to make clean, green and free solar electricity all year-round.
