 SolarHub COO Does The Dumball Rally- 2018 SolarHub COO Florian Geier is once more participating in the Dumball Rally to raise funds for charity. The Dumball Rally, a British based fancy dress charity car rally started in 2006 and has so far raised over half a million quid for the Teenage Cancer Trust. These funds are used to build a state-of-the-art unit at a recognised centre of excellence, The Royal Marsden Hospital. This year’s Dumball Rally will start on September 14th in Brighton, UK and will see the teams venture across 10 countries in their costumes inclusive of Corfu, Greece, read more…



 SOLAR GROWTH IN AUSTRALIA Previously named one of the best markets for solar in the world by the Clean Energy Council (CEC, 2015), Australia have, as of 14th June 2018, installed over 3 million small-scale renewable energy systems. These 3 million systems have been installed since the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme was introduced in 2001 by the Clean Energy Regulator (CER), offering financial incentives for individuals and small businesses to install eligible small-scale renewable energy systems, inclusive of solar panels which accounted for around 63 percent. Development of new optimisation technologies, batteries, and the increased efficiency of inverters and panels read more…

Miss Jordan’s Garden

miss jordands garden

 Miss Jordan’s Garden Miss Jordan’s Garden was built at St Michael’s School in memory of Jordan Taylor. She was a seven-year-old girl who passed away suddenly due to a cancerous Grade 4 Medulloblastoma tumour that had bled onto her brain. The garden has been created to teach the students of St Michael’s Primary School the importance of a sustainable garden through practical methods and curriculum opportunities. SolarHub are honoured to have been able to donate their time and a solar PV system to Miss Jordan’s Garden, helping contribute to this wonderful project and helping the future students learn more about read more…



 INCREASE YOUR ENERGY INDEPENDENCE Energy independence is a phrase that is rapidly gaining momentum throughout the energy world, and for good reason too. With increasing energy prices and demands on the grid, many home and business owners are looking for more stability and control over their own energy needs, some of which can be achieved with the help of solar technologies. GENERATE Solar PV systems are a fantastic option for many home or business owners by allowing them to generate their own electricity. Solar PV panels capture the suns radiation, turning it into DC electricity which is then converted by read more…

 HIGH VOLTAGE  The standard grid voltage in Australia is 240V and to ensure that the voltage remains relatively consistent across the grid, inverters are only allowed to operate when the grid voltage is below 255V. What this means If at any time the grid voltage is above 255V for 10mins or more your inverter will shutdown until the voltage drops below the 255V threshold. How will you Know You will be able to tell this is happening either by looking at the inverter directly where you will see the inverter power drop to 0W for periods of time during the day or via the monitoring portal for the inverter where you will read more…



 CANBERRA’S VPP CALLED UPON TO SUPPORT THE GRID   Having completed what is believed to be Australia’s largest trial of a distributed Virtual Power Plant (VPP) of residential battery storage systems, the early  results indicate that batteries can work collectively to reduce the pressure on the grid at times of peak demand and reduce power bills. Launched in November 2017, Reposit Power technology, Reposit Fleet, gave Canberra battery owners the ability to sell their stored energy back to the ACT grid when support services were required. The batteries respond to price signals on the National Electricity Market to provide grid read more…

Solar in The Summer


 Solar in The Summer Australians have been experiencing a scorching Summer this year with temperatures soaring to the high 30s and 40s around the continent. This has in turn led many solar PV owners to monitor their systems success with delight, but has also brought about a magnitude of solar users who fear that their system will not be productive in the other seasons of the year. Below we aim to dissect this common misconception by breaking down the a typical solar PV generation process. How a Solar PV System Works Solar PV panels work by converting the suns radiation read more…



 MEDIA RELEASE: CANBERRANS OFFERED SOLAR BATTERY REBATES UNDER NEXTGEN Friday 12th January 2018 SolarHub have been announced as one of the selected companies whom are able to offer subsidies under the latest round of the ACT Government’s Next Generation Storage Program (NextGen). The Next Generation Storage Grants program aims to facilitate the uptake of battery storage in the ACT. The program will support the roll-out of around 36MW of distributed battery storage in more than 5000 homes and businesses by 2020. This is one of the largest roll-outs of distributed solar battery storage technology in the world. Having successfully installed over 230 batteries read more…

Energy Saving Tips This Christmas


 Energy Saving Tips this Christmas Christmas should be a time for enjoyment- but can often be a stressful and expensive time of the year, filled with buying gifts, cooking meals, decorating, hosting the family, and forgetting all about just how much power you’re using- until you get the electricity bill shortly after. To help avoid post-Christmas electricity shock, we have put together a few ideas that can help reduce the impact you’re making on your electricity bill during this silly season, meaning you’re able to focus on more important things. Solar Power Decorations If you’re planning on stringing up some lights outside your read more…
