Here are some frequently asked questions and useful tips to help you in your way, no matter where you are in your solar journey

New to solar

Transitioning to solar power is an exciting, accessible and environmentally conscious decision. To help you get started, we’ve pulled together some key information for solar newcomers.

How do solar panels work?

The sun’s rays hit the solar panels. The panels convert the energy to ‘direct current’, which flows to an inverter. The inverter converts the electricity from ‘direct current’ to ‘alternating current’, which can then be used to power your home. Clean and simple.


How much can I save with solar panels?

With solar panels you will start saving from day 1. And you will continue to save money on your household bills each month, while also helping to save the environment. Your energy usage, the number of solar panels you install and most importantly, the technology you choose, will determine what savings you make.


Is my home suitable for solar?

If you’re thinking about going solar, you probably have lots of questions. Here are some key considerations to help you assess the solar potential of your home and whether solar panels make sense for you.


How do I choose the most sustainable solar panels for my home?

To understand a solar panel’s true impact on the earth, you have to look at the materials that were used to manufacture them. SunPower Maxeon panels were the world’s first solar panels to earn the prestigious Cradle to Cradle Certified—Silver designation for solar panel sustainability. For this certification, panels go through a rigorous evaluation of sustainable practices in the areas of material health, material reutilization, renewable energy and carbon management, water stewardship, and social fairness.
