Are there more benefits from having solar panels?

This is a no brainer, the less dependent we are on coal produced electricity the better the environment will be. As our population grows in Australia and worldwide, there is a shift to be aware of where we are headed in global warming effects. solar panels and solar power are important parts of the equation.

What is meant by ‘grid connected solar panel system’?

Your power that is produced feeds into the power grid, when excess power is produced it actually makes the meter go backwards. This off sets the price you pay for electricity against the price you are paid for putting your surplus electricity into the grid, which means lower prices for you in running your home. The more power your home produces the less the electricity bill.

Why should i choose solar panels?

Solar panels lower the amount of electricity you need to buy from your power provider, any excess electricity your system produces (surplus power) is sold back to the power provider, this is at a higher rate than what you pay for standard electricity. The other benefit is the lowering of you carbon foot print due to the production of green power.
