      Solar Panel Installation

      Before installing solar panels in Melbourne, consider the following things:

      Solar Panel Type

      Different types of solar panels exist, and each type can provide different levels of efficiency. It is important to select the right type for your specific needs. The best way to do this is to consult a solar expert who can help you choose the right type for your property.

      Solar Panel Placement

      Where you place your solar panels is just as important as the type you choose. It’s essential to consider how much sunlight exposure your property gets and the airflow around the panels. This will help to maximize the efficiency of your solar system.

      The Size Of The Solar Panel Array

      It is essential to calculate how much electricity will be generated by the panels, taking into account the size of the array, the direction and tilt of the panels and their quality.

      Typical area in square metres:

      • 5.2kW system: 20-25m2
      • 6.6kW system: 25-30m2
      • 10kW system: 40-50m2

      The Type Of Mounting System

      Different mounting systems are available, depending on the type of solar panel product used. Ensure the chosen mounting system is optimal for your situation and meets all regulatory requirements.

      Mounting systems include roof mount, ground mount and carport/pergola mounts.

      The Type Of Inverter

      The quality and efficiency of solar inverters play a big role in how much electricity solar panels produce. Choose an inverter that meets your requirements and also has a good warranty. The two most commonly used types of inverters for solar panel systems are string inverters and microinverters. 

      Monitoring & Tracking

      Solar monitoring and tracking systems can help you keep track of the performance of your system. The data provided by these systems allow you to optimise and fine-tune your solar system to get the most out of it. Mobile and remote monitoring are common features nowadays.

      Installation Costs

      Consider the total cost, including labour and materials. Good quality solar panel installers will be able to provide a quote that is both competitive and cost-effective.

      The Installer

      Choosing a reputable solar panel installer is essential. Look for customer reviews and ratings and technical knowledge and experience. Trione Energy is an approved Clean Energy Council installer that has installed thousands of solar panel systems in Melbourne.


      Check what type of warranty comes with the solar panel installation and ensure to read the small print.

      Why Choose Trione Energy to Install Solar Energy

      Going solar with Trione Energy is the smartest way to save on energy costs and enjoy a brighter future for you and your family.


      The type and size of solar panels you install will depend on the amount of energy your home needs and how much space is available for the installation. It’s essential to calculate your energy requirements before making a purchase.

      Generally, installing solar panels in the summer or spring is popular, as these are the sunniest months in Melbourne. However, solar panels can be installed year-round, as long as they’re properly protected from extreme weather conditions.

      The ideal system size will depend on several factors, including your energy requirements, the amount of space available for installation and your budget. It is best to consult a solar expert for advice on the best size system for your particular needs.

      Most solar panel installation companies in Melbourne provide warranties for their products and services. Generally, the panels come with a 10-15 year warranty, while the installation comes with a 5-10 year warranty. Make sure you check the exact terms and conditions of any warranty before committing to a solar panel installation project.

      We recommend cleaning your solar panel system at least twice a year. Depending on where you live, the weather conditions may require more frequent cleaning of the panels. Be sure to check with your solar panel installation company about specific maintenance instructions and any additional equipment necessary for proper system maintenance.

      Basic maintenance for a solar panel system includes:

      • regularly checking the wiring and connections,
      • ensuring the panels are secure on the roof or other mountings,
      • inspecting for any corrosion,
      • and cleaning the solar panels.

      In Australia, most people clean their solar panels at least four times a year, or more, if they live in a very dusty area. High dust levels can reduce the efficiency of your solar panel system, so it is best to keep them clean.

      Solar panels can last up to 25 years, with many lasting even longer. They are built to withstand extreme weather conditions and will continue to work reliably, even in areas with harsh climates.

      The return on investment for solar panels in Australia is very attractive, with many homeowners achieving a payback period of 8-15 years. With the Government’s Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES), homeowners can also benefit from a generous rebate on the installation costs of their system. These incentives make solar panels an increasingly viable investment for many Australians.

      Generally, any property can benefit from solar panel installation, but you should consider some specific requirements before installing a system. These include the angle of tilt, available space, access to sunlight, and shading. It’s best to consult with a qualified professional before deciding on installation.

      Installing a solar panel system in Melbourne can save you money on electricity bills. Depending on the size and type of system, you may be eligible for government incentives and rebates which can reduce the installation cost. Additionally, depending on your energy usage, you could save up to 25-50% on your electricity bills. Careful planning could reduce ongoing household energy costs significantly. The amount of savings you make on your energy bills will depend on the size of the system, its efficiency and your energy usage.
