Why upgradeable solar systems are not a good idea


Upgradeable or expandable solar systems

I generally don’t advise of smaller upgradeable solar systems as the payback period after installing more panels on the roof at a later date gets blown out pretty hard. Also at the present time we have the retailers purchasing our excess power, and the Labor Government in QLD now looking seriously at increasing their mandatory purchase price back up from 0c to perhaps 8c or more again – it’s pretty good.

Even someone with a power bill of just $550 per quarter (18kws usage roughly a day) at the present time, was using 50% during the day and 50% at night time, and bought a premium 6kw system (Jinko panels and SMA inverter for $5900. The payback would look like this.

Calculations now upgraded for 2019!

In April 2019 we revisited this website and have updated the calculation from 2015 to what is current in 2019.

6 kw System makes on average 27.6kwh day

50% of day power used (9kw/hrs @ .255c) = $2.30 per day saved (remember this increases by at least 10% every year)

Residual power sold (18.6 kwhrs sold @20c) CLICK ENERGY without Mandatory Energex contribution = $3.72 sold (this figure surely can also only go up and if Labor aren’t telling porky pies, it should)

total $6.02 saved per day by a 6kw solar system

$6.02 X 90 days (billing period) = $541.8

$6.02 X 365 days (over a year) = $2197.3

So that is a premium 6kw system using quality Jinko solar panels and Euoropean 5kw Fronius inverter purchased for $5900 / $2197.3 per year = 2.68 year payback on only a $550 quarterly bill IF the value of the electricity you were to generate remained the same! However we know with inflation, of course that isn’t going to be the case.

This then takes the true payback period of the Premium Quality 6kw solar system to around the 2.2 year period.

Imagine if you bought a 6.6kw solar system for just $4200!

For this very reason we don’t offer or recommend ‘upgrade-able solar’ systems anymore. ‘upgradeable or expandable solar systems’ are so 2012 – even then there were massive F.I.T’s so it still made no sense not to get one. Perhaps only if money was a limiting factor (but then solar companies have always had finance on offer)

 Read this article why bigger systems are always the best choice now

Also, I haven’t even touched on the subject of ‘will there or won’t there be STC’s around when it comes time to ‘upgrade the solar system?’ – This meaning that you may have to pay full price for the second lot of solar panels, as there is talk of phasing out the Small-scale Technology Certificate contribution at a later date. Your extra 2kw of panels could quite possibly cost more than the initial 3kw of panels with the 5kw inverter!

What happens if you attempt to upgrade the system and compatible solar panels are no longer available?

We see this one happen all the time, people calling us up and asking for quotes to ‘upgrade their solar system’ and add additional solar panels to it.

But guess what?

250 watt polycrystalline panels are now the flavour of the season. Our wholesalers and us are no longer stocking 250 watt Monocrystalline solar panels. Trying to source 190 watt Monocrystalline Solar panels is hard work – 190 watt solar panels are now ancient and near extinct.

We just cannot match any panel with any other panel. We wish it was that simple!

Solar install Rules, Regualtions and Guidelines – 2015

Finally, we have also not considered new solar install rules and regulations that could come in and take effect between the time your ‘upgradeable solar system’ was installed and the time that you decide ‘right love, its time to load that expandable system up to its full capacity!’

This is exactly what has happened 16th July 2012. Changes here meant that any upgradeable solar system that was installed prior to July 2012 had to be basically re-installed when it came around to additional panels being added after this date.

Simply put, the initial installation had to be bought up to scratch (satisfying the criteria for the updated guidelines) unexpectedly costing the customer hundreds of dollars more.

The only company offering ‘upgradeable solar systems’ these days that we know of is True Value Solar. TVS always has their ‘lowest price ever’ ad on TV, and always seem to be offering an upgradeable solar system to purchase at the lowest price ever.

The idea of an upgradeable solar system sounds great, but when you closely look into it, it’s really not that good of an idea at all, is it?

Are Solar Batteries worth it in Australia?


“I’m thinking about installing ‘Solar Batteries – Are they worth it?”

My answer to you is ‘Definitely not at this stage!’

And as for the foreseeable future, my opinion is not for some time (a good few years yet)

Tesla Powerwall vs LG Chem battery

Decisions, decisions, Tesla Powerwall or the LG Chem? I say neither.

Why are batteries for solar not good?

They are so expensive to buy and install in 2016, around $10,000 and all you get is a battery that hold around 7kw/hrs, and they get worse and deteriorate from day one. The ROI (Return On Investment) on batteries is not even outlasting the warranty on these things.

If a Battery stores  7kw at the moment, and a kw is only worth around 26cents,,

let’s do the maths…

7kw of  stored energy @ 26cents purchase price per KW/hr =  $1.82 saved per day. That sure ain’t a lot of return per day, on the best possible scenario!

“What do you mean by ‘best possible scenario’? Batteries are surely worth it and a good thing?”

Just because many solar companies are out there actively promoting solar power storage and batteries for solar power systems in Brisbane doesn’t make them a good thing. It just means they are selling batteries for solar systems. Solar companies are selling batteries to make money. Money goes hand-in-hand with greed.

You only get that $1.82 per day if you actually produce enough power to fill the battery up – AND USE IT ALL!

What happens if it is a cloudy day, and your 6kw Solar system doesn’t produce enough power to fill the solar battery up to it’s storage capacity? Maybe the battery has only 3kw of storage saved in the tank from that dark, cold miserable day. Good day to run some heating at night from your stored energy, but oh my… Our Tesla Powerwall, LG Chem, or GCL Batteries – Whatever the flavour you have, has only managed to half-fill your solar battery, so the mathematics on that scenario go something like this;

3kw of energy stored, used to power appliances and Reverse system at night @ 26 cents = .78 cents.

Then we also run into another problem, what about the scenario where the battery actually all fills up. This is a situation where the solar panels and solar battery are functioning perfectly and come Sundown you have yourself 7kw of bottled energy you harvested from the sun, all that ‘free energy’ to use. But, your flight for a week-long get away in Sydney to catch up with the extended family, leaves tonight – All that clean energy harvested from the sun going to waste.  But hey, you can still brag to the knob you live to next door that your solar system has a battery attached – or does that make you the knob? Haha!

With Solar power you forgo your Feed in Tariff as you don’t sell the power stored

Also, you can sell the power for 6-10cents (6 cents with AGL, 8 Cents with Origin and 10 cents with Click Energy) without even having to buy batteries, so that automatically devalues your energy saved by over a whopping 33%. Put simply, you haven’t saved 7kw’s of energy worth 26 cents, it’s only worth 16cents, as you are already getting up to 10cents for your power exported to the grid!

So if a small FIT is still available, the maximum return is 7kw of power stored, with power being worth 16 cents;

[email protected] = $1.12 maximum saving per day – How much are you thinking of spending on one of those liabilities (We haven’t even gotten to the liability part yet)

Are Solar Batteries safe?

Like any battery – they can explode. with explosions, come fire. Houses and fire are not a good match. The truth is solar and batteries haven’t been around very long at all, they are a very new concept and we cannot comment on the safety of solar batteries that are on offer and sold in Australia at the moment. It would be safe to say that you minimize the risk of a house fire by not installing a 7kw battery in your home.

Could installing a solar battery contribute to an event that would see the Fire Brigade attend to your solar system in the case of an emergency?

Could installing a solar battery contribute to an event that would see the Fire Brigade attend to your solar system in the case of an emergency?

How good are the Warranties for Solar Batteries?

The warranties for solar batteries at the moment are not very good – They are not even lasting until the customers Return on Investment!
For Example the most commonly talked about solar battery for home storage is the Tesla Powerwall – This battery storage system has a warranty period of 10 years in Australia.

We don’t even know yet how good the batteries last. Do they last 20 years? Do they only last 5 years in actual fact? Are the Solar battery Manufacturing customers coming to the party with warranty claims? Just too many uncertainties around batteries for solar systems, and a non-existent Return on Investment that leaves only the mathematically challenged or full-blown ‘Green Energy nerds’ buying batteries in 2016. I’m not against anyone buying batteries, just as long as they fully install the benefits Vs non-benefits when it comes to installing batteries on their home solar system.

Does Qld Solar and Lighting sell and install battery storage?

Yes and no. We do have the ability to install batteries, but we are not so skilled at Sales, that we can sell a battery system to the average household in Brisbane. It would be literally like selling Ice-to-Eskimo’s. If you do insist on buying batteries from us, we would make you sign a waiver form agreeing that you bought the batteries for your PV Solar system, totally against our advice.

Even Choice magazine have got it right (for once) about the viability of these solar batteries.

Beyond Building Energy


Beyond Building Energy was a solar power company that had many offices in Brisbane and the Gold Coast. This company was known for selling very cheap solar power systems. So cheap that it effectively would bring Beyond Building Energy into receivership and liquidation.

Beyond building Energy

Beyond Building Energy – Definitely turned out to be the most non-sensible solar choice you could make

We here, at Queensland Solar and Lighting have had many phone call and email enquiries asking us if we help out beyond building energy solar power customers with their not-working solar inverters and faulty solar panels.

Beyond Building Energy – Sunny Roo Inverter

sunny roo inverter review

is your SunnyRoo inverter not turning on too? Click here to get help

Beyond Building Energy was known for not only installing Sunny Roo solar inverters, but also being so involved that we are led to believe that they were the main distributors of the Sunny Roo inverters and received thousands of these dodgy solar inverters in large shipment quantities from China. The sunny roo solar inverter is profusely known as one of the worst solar inverters to ever hit the Australian market. You can read about the sunny roo inverter here and also what to do if you need to replace your faulty sunny roo inverter or if you think that it is covered under warranty – which it definitely is not!

Beyond Building Energy – Warranties

The interesting thing about Beyond Building Energy and their warranties on all products and workmanship, is that they had the best in the business!

When everyone was out offering  their honest five-year inverter warranties and also standard five-year workmanship warranties, Beyond Building Energy was out there offering their ridiculous 10 year inverter warranty on what had proved to be a really bad piece of junk of a solar inverter.

So now there are many customers who had solar panel systems installed in Brisbane and the Gold Coast by Beyond Building Energy who believe they still have their solar system covered under warranty by Beyond Building Energy.

However, when they go searching on the Internet or ring the office number that was on the solar sales Representatives business card, they find that the phones are disconnected and emails that they are sending out to beyond building energy are just bouncing back!

This just goes to show that in some cases the length of warranties or what they cover don’t mean a damn thing! The poor old Beyond Building Energy customers have no customer service phone number to call or contact and no one from Beyond Building Energy to give them a helping hand when in need.

Beyond Building Energy warranty

What do now that your BBE System is not working?

So what we tell these disgruntled Beyond Building Energy solar customers is that all they can do is replace their Sunny Roo Inverter with a new inverter with full warranties while they are that, it is often advised, that they should really consider replacing those or performing and terribly built in manufactured 190 watt Monocrystalline panels.

These systems were also not installed as well is customers may have like them to be. They were the work of some very ordinary early sub contract installations, and it is highly advised that any beyond building energy customer has their existing solar system thoroughly checked out by a current CEC approved solar installer. This is to make sure that everything remains safe and protect you against a possible solar panel calls house fire. We hope that you have better luck with your solar system than you have had with Beyond Building Energy.

Do solar panels add value to your home?


Do solar panels really add value to your home?

The best answer to this question would be, “No, Not really”, however they can sway a buyer to prefer to buy your house on sale, rather than purchase a similar house that the buyer also really likes. The house that has solar panels installed would likely get the nod of approval as they buyer will see this as an immediate $5,000-10,000 that they will not have to spend.

do solar oanels add value to your home.

Solar panels – good value for the electricity bill payer while in the house, that’s about it.

75% of the installs we have been doing for the last 18 months are from people who have just bought an established house in the suburbs or others who call up and say, “Hi Qld Solar & Lighting, we are just about to finish building our new house in the new estate out the back of Brisbane and want a solar panel installation on the day, or few days after settlement!’ – These guys know that everyday they own a home without solar panels, is a day where they are simply wasting money.

A few years ago (when solar panels were more expensive) I remember selling solar panels to cashed up Canberra public servants whose primary reason for installing solar panels on their home was to ‘increase the value of their home’. I’m not sure if installing solar panels ever did increase the value of a house or ever will. But I can certainly say, for the most part, they will never lower the value of a home and won’t be off-putting like a swimming pool can be – After all, EVERYONE wants cheaper electricity bills, don’t they?

Bigger solar systems are better

However a buyer would more likely appreciate a bigger solar system (5 or 6kw) installed on a house, and installed PROPERLY – No dodgy cable exposed – A nice neat install from a reputable installer and also would be more attractive if the solar system consisted of better known brands.

For example, a house with a 6kw Sunpower panel / SMA inverter setup would be a great added fixture to come with the house, whereas an old 190watt x 8 panel Beyond Building install with a faulty Sunny Roo inverter would in fact be a burden and would more likely cost the new home owners more money in having it removed and replaced with a quality solar system that they would then have to source and have installed themselves.

Solar heating for swimming pools


Solar heating for swimming pool

With the growing prices of energy, leisure expenses such as heating swimming pools must be made efficient and one sure way to do that is Solar heating for swimming pools. You can extend your swimming season just by increasing the fun factor and value of your swimming pool by using simple means that will save you unnecessary cost and energy. With Solar heaters for swimming pool you can double the days of your swimming season.

Solar heating for swimming pools are integrated in to a normal filter system. They work when the water is intercepted by the pool filter and is directed towards the solar collector and then at last flowing into the pool. When the water passes the solar collector it heats up considerably and then it is pumped and filtered. If your system has a temperature sensor, it can determine if the water is exactly how you want it by checking the ideal temperature.     

Why do you need solar heating for swimming pool?

  • Solar heating for swimming pool will ensure that your pool is heated by harnessing free energy, which cost effective and environment friendly. Therefore, the cost of gas or electricity is saved.
  • Your swimming season is extended to eight to ten months each year. The best of which is that it is triple the expected swimming time in a regular pool with no gas or extra electricity bills to pay.
  • If you choose solar heating for swimming pool, the equipment is most likely to last for more time than electric equipment. Generally they come with ten years warranty and hence can last at least 10 to 20 years or more.
  • Unlike with gas electric heaters the solar heating system don’t need to be serviced by technicians every once in a while.
  • They are light weight and can be aesthetically pleasing


Things to keep in mind while installing

There are certain conditions that you follow while installing a solar heating for the swimming poolto get the maximum benefits of the heater. First you must have solar collectors large enough that they can soak up enough sunlight need for heating energy.

The collector area will be dependent upon the size of the pool and the temperature of the water which will obviously depend on weather. Another element that is crucial while heating is the amount of shading on your pool as well as the direction in which the solar panels are set.





Additional advantages

When the filter pump is working efficiently there is no need to add a pump for the solar heater, as the existing pump will circulate the water through solar collectors.Solar heating for swimming pools can be completely automated by a properly designed heating solar system. There are automatic solar controls that will divert water to the panels and heat up to the temperature preset by you.

Thus now days the solar heating system is not only cost effective and environmental friendly but easy to operate as well.

Another great website that offers options for those wanting commercial solar power systems in Queensland can look at “Energex. “Energex” is a great website and a company because it allows its consumers to be able to look at the eligibility criteria. This is probably one of the most important things in installing a commercial solar power system. The reason is simple. One spends thousands of dollars on installing the solar panels and realising that the locations of these solar panels are wrong, or simply realising that they live in the wrong part of town will cause one to lose out on thousands of dollars. This eligibility criterion stops that from happening making commercial solar power systems in Queensland more efficient.

Another thing that the consumers would like while opting for a commercial solar power system from Energex is that it awards rewards for all its customers. It has rewards and tariffs allowing the customers to save a lot of money. It also has tips on saving money, especially with swimming pools which do not need to be on all day.

One aspect of solar power production that the run-on-the-mill solar power consumer would not know about is “feed in tarrif” where by a producer of solar power can connect it to the local grid and provide electricity for the neighbourhood, and earn money while doing so. It is a great initiative taken by the government that also makes commercial solar power in Brisbane.

Commercial solar power was once a dream only the rich could have but now everyone can just close their eyes, or in this case click a button, and off they go dreaming. The website is made such that every small detail, right from the equipment used in a solar panel to questioning what happens on cloudy days, is answered on their website. What more, it also provides special offers to the consumers so they can avail this very expensive system for a little less, making it seem appealing to all.
