Our Solar Systems
Solar Smart Energy Monitor Installation
Sparky Solar provides Energy Monitor installation services for homes and businesses.
This is a third party 4G enabled device installed in your switchboard or meter box that provides real-time remote monitoring of home energy use and solar production through an intuitive smartphone app or computer portal.
With up to 51.8% of solar panels not performing at any point in time, you need to know exactly when there is an issue. The Solar Smart Monitor is the only way that you can get live data for your solar energy system - the Dashboard data is updated every five seconds and displayed in real time.
Any faults, failures or underperformance are detected and diagnosed almost instantly! You can save hundreds of dollars by catching issues as soon as they crop up - no more waiting for your bill to arrive to realise there is a problem.
Using the Dashboard, you can tell when it's the most efficient time of the day to turn on your most energy-hungry appliances. Run the pool pump, turn off the hot water, and set your appliances to run at the optimal time every day to slash your energy bills even further
On top of fault notifications, you can finally get the most up-to-date information on your solar energy system, anytime, anywhere. See your energy consumption as it happens and catch huge spikes. You can also see the impact of weather, shading, faults, and breakages on your solar performance, so you can improve your system's efficiency.
Sparky Solar Protection Plan
A solar protection plan is designed to help you manage the cost of unexpected solar repairs and save you money from lost production.
Why do I need a protection plan if my system is still under warranty?
Protection plans are not the same as warranties. Warranties cover manufacturer or workmanship problems. The Solar protection plan offers a layer of security beyond your solar warranty, addressing the performance of the system that can degrade due to normal wear and tear, thereby costing you lost production and lost revenue.
An unmonitored solar energy system will produce less energy than a system that is remotely monitored. In my years of installing and servicing solar systems I have found most people check their system weekly for the first month or two then the novelty wears off and they only look at it once in a while after that.
If your solar system goes offline due to a power surge or tripped circuit breaker, you would seldom know? There is no way the inverter can alert you. You only discover the failure when your next electricity bill arrives, you may already have incurred hundreds of dollars in electricity costs that you could have produced for free! or Your warranty period may have expired before you realise you have a problem. The cost of this could be in the thousands !
I personally have been in this situation and lost hundreds of dollars due to an intermittent fault with my inverter. (Samil 5200TL-D)
Unbeknown to me the inverter was tripping on and off throughout the day and production was down by over 50%.
It was only when I got consecutive power bills that were $200 more than my usual $50 - $70 bill that my wife told me to sort it out.
I went down to the inverter, all looked fine. No error reports in the log. Production was down over 50% for that day. I blamed dirty panels due to pigeons messing on them. So I got up on the roof and cleaned panels. Next day same thing.
This time when I was at the inverter, it turned off and on again for no reason whilst I was there looking at it.
It was faulty and I never knew. I thought if this can happen to me it must be happening to thousands of other unsuspecting people, costing them hundreds of dollars per year.
I looked for a solution and found one. A third party monitoring device that sends alert’s if the system is not performing to expectations.
We now install this device on ALL our systems
