How Much Can You Save Installing Solar?

At AJ’s Electrical, we’ve run a scenario through our software so you can better understand the cost savings that solar power can provide.

This example uses a typical family home with an average monthly power bill of $180. The family have installed a 5kW AJ’s Electrical solar power system, complete with Trina solar panels, and an Alpha solar inverter.

The family benefits from a remarkable 72% reduction in their monthly power bill, decreasing their total energy spend to just $50 per month. The accumulated savings over a span of 20 years amounts to an impressive $23,978.

As the cost of traditional power prices continues to rise, the investment horizon on solar panels could reap an even higher return on investment. 

Solar Energy Generated Over 12-months 

Our solar system performance graph shows 105% of solar energy produced from a solar system over a 12-month period.

Solar systems may produce surplus energy to your requirements. Traditional power companies offer buy-back schemes where they purchase additional energy you are not using, resulting in further cost savings.

Very happy with the job. Tradesman visited and fixed everything I had booked in and then even took time to do the little extra jobs I remembered while he was there that I hadn't booked in. Was very reliable, efficient and friendly.

Turned up on time. Quickly ascertained issue (hot water cylinder not working), fixed switch. Happily answered my questions about various things with an older house. He recommended replacing a few light switches and explained why. I wd recommend AJs.

We recently had AJ's Electrical install a solar system at our property. From the initial contact, through to installation and after service, the company and its people have been fantastic. The job was completed quickly and to a brilliant standard, with respectful, tidy and knowledgeable specialists doing the quoting, install, and after service. We have had two queries since the install, both of which have been answered immediately. I can not speak more highly of this outfit, they deserve your business. Cheers, Mike

Warren who sold us our solar system, and air con unit. Fantastic knowledge, friendly, wasn't full of sales patter, sound advice, and support. Thankyou. Violet who works in the offices is super efficient, and answers all queries at lightening speed! Thankyou Now to the team. These guys are worth their weight in gold! Josh, Jake, Wayne & Dublin. Absolutely on the money... A* through and through. Prompt, respectful, efficient, knowledgeable, take pride in their work, and super friendly. Extremely tidy! No damage, no scuffs, no marks... Incredible job, especially whilst working in such hot and humid conditions. These are the type of tradies (electricians) that are few and far between, and when you get a service like what we received, you'd be hard pressed to find others of this calibre. Hence we will stay with them! A million thankyous... You're the best! Gaynor and Chris
