Would you know if your solar system stopped working?

Solar panels are self-sufficient. This makes them a great way for busy families to save money on their electricity bills, however it also means it’s easy to miss the signs when your system stops working.

In fact in 2018 one in five solar systems in Australia were deficient. If that’s you, you’d be missing out on those valuable solar savings.

If you miss the signs when the problem hits, it could be months before you notice your solar system isn’t delivering savings or even years if you’re paying your electricity bills by direct debit.

According to our estimates, a household in Victoria with a 4kW solar system would be losing around $1150 a year if their system stopped working.

That’s why it’s critical that you know your solar system is working. But how can you stay on top of it?


Introducing the Solar Alert

There are a couple of options when it comes to monitoring your solar system. While there is expensive equipment that you can add to your existing solar system, at DC Power Co we offer a Solar Alert to solar customers with smart meters.

If we notice your solar system stops exporting electricity to the grid, we’ll send you a Solar Alert to let you know something doesn’t look right. We’ll help you find out what happened so we can get your system back up and running sooner.

So you don’t have to monitor your solar system if you don’t want to.
