Frequently Asked Questions

No. The price our Hytech specialists quote you will be inclusive of all costs. From product supply, system installation, your site inspection  and all services and maintenance required.

The panels we offer are all Tier1 panels, meaning they are designed to withstand any extreme weather, including storm and hail.

We always advise to install the highest capacity system, relative to your power consumption for maximum efficiency at time of purchase. However, because your energy consumption can vary and increase due to external factors, the ability to add more panels is available; based on the respective regulations from the authorities

To take advantage of the feed-in tariffs of solar panels, you will need to have a bi-directional (import-export) meter. These days, most existing meters are smart meters, which would only need a re-programming.

Not necessarily. Any of the power produced by your system that you don’t use, is transmitted to the Central Power Grid, aka back to your power distributor. This is where you receive credits and feed-in tariffs for that power. If you decide to install a battery, you would then be storing this extra power for yourself to use when needed, instead of it going back to the grid. So it’s a personal choice for wanting a battery.

We ensure that your solar power system is installed in a timely manner, once all of the required approvals have been met and accepted. Our general installation time frame ranges from 1 to 4 weeks.

We can’t give an estimate to this answer without understanding your particular energy consumption usages as there are many factors that influence it. From the pricing of electricity, to the level of your feed-in tariff, the size of your system, the weather conditions you face and your daily power consumption.

To give an example though, a 5kW system installed in a suburb of Melbourne can be expected to produce up to 6,986 kWH (kilowatt-hours) per year.

All solar systems sold and installed through Hytech meet ALL the power guidelines and safety standards set out by the Clean Energy Council. Our systems are also inspected by an accredited and qualified installer through the Clean Energy Council and issues a “Certificate of Electrical Safety,” before the inspector officially turns on the system.

kWH stands for kilowatt or 1,000 watts, it is a measure of power. Solar systems are rated per the number of watts the system can produce under standardised conditions.

kWH stands for kilowatts per hour, it is a measure of used energy. If you use a 1kW heater for an hour it means you have used 1kWH of energy.

Electricity providers charge a certain cent per kWH that varies depending on who your retailer is.

Grid-connected solar systems are connected to the power grid where Feed-in tariffs can be received.

Off-grid solar systems are ‘stand-alone’ and produce electricity completely independently for remote properties, usually backed up with a battery for system storage.

Any grid-connected solar power system should be turned off and shut down within seconds of the grid losing power, if and when it does, due to safety concerns and taking precautions.

Your ideal solar system for a home is dependent of many different factors and hard to estimate without looking at your daily energy consumption usage and yearly energy consumption usage.

All our panels come with a 25 year performance warranty, our inverters with a 5 or 10 year limited inverter warranty. Our Hytech warranties exceed most international industry standards.

To achieve the highest efficiency from your system, panels should be mounted on a north facing roof at a slight slopped angle. Nonetheless, panels can be mounted facing east and west too while still providing excellent performance. If you don’t have a suitable roof, panels can be mounted on frames in a sunnier part of the property, however, there is an additional cost which would be quoted individually.
