The average cost of a 5kW Solar PV system ranges from $3900 to $8000. Solar system prices have significantly lowered In Australia and this is the best time to get it. While you can even find 5 kW solar systems that are below $3900, we would recommend that you stick with our range because at this price, you will get a quality solar system.

If you are using 275W panels, then you will need 18 panels, and if you choose the 327W panels, you will only need 15 panels.

With a 5kW system, you can get up to 22 units per day, which is enough for a typical Australian household.

The electricity production depends on the location and positioning. The quality of the panel is also vital. You might be living in a sunny area with less cloud cover, which is ideal. However, if you are in a less sunny area, you will still generate electricity if you have a high-quality Solar PV System. Additionally, you should consider buying optimisers. We recommend that you buy high-quality systems because they are reliable and will give you the best results. This means that you will start saving money sooner.

Solar panels produce electricity by absorbing light. This process is called the photovoltaic effect that helps convert sunlight into direct current. The inverter has the function of converting the direct current into alternating current for your home. Any excess energy is fed back to the battery storage system and the electricity grid.

Solar panels are made of several solar cells that are connected between a backing plate and protective glass. A typical solar panel is made from silicon and it usually has an aluminium frame.

Most home Solar PV Systems are multi or mono-crystalline. However, you must consider other aspects like warranties, quality, power output, and price.

Buying a 5kW Solar PV System is an ideal way to tackle energy costs. The solar system makes your home self-reliant, reducing the need to buy electricity from your retailer.
You will also be feeding in tariffs. Because when you feed the grid, you will get a feed-in tariff. This will help you save more money.
