Solar panels convert sunlight into electricity which is in DC (Direct Current) form, the Inverter converts the DC electricity to AC (Alternative Current) which can then be used in your home or business. Solar energy will offset your daytime energy needs, so it is important to ensure the system is sized correctly as oversizing a system can lead to a longer payback period
This depends on several factors, such as how much electricity you use, your load profile (how and when you use electricity), available roof space and how much you are willing to invest. You can contact one of our experts who will be able to tailor a system to suit your needs and maximise your return on investment.

“I was referred to Elite Solar Pro by a family friend and have absolutely no qualms in furthering the recommendation process. When it came to solar, I found Paul Mc Cabe to be a virtual well of information which was highly appreciated. He was quick to respond in both, providing relevant information and meeting on site to touch base. The installation process was over a three day timeline due to the number of panels and I can only commend the team on their diligence during this period especially as two of those days were extremely hot (but hey, what a way to get a tan!).
Many thanks to Paul and the team from Elite Solar Pro – keep up the fantastic work.”
