Frequently Asked Questions

How can I determine the right solar system for my needs in Townsville?

When determining the ideal solar system for your needs, it’s important to assess your current and future energy consumption, consider the size and orientation of your roof and set a budget. The choice between grid-connected or off-grid systems and the warranties offered on products and installation also play important roles. Our team at Barra Solar Power always stays updated with the latest trends and provides suggestions for the best-value solar options available. Consult with us to make an informed decision that aligns with both your energy needs and budget.

At Barra Solar Power, we suggest only the best for our clients. Our recommended middle-range solar panels stand out in the market with a power capacity of 415 watts. But what truly sets them apart is the impressive 25-year warranty, which ensures your investment is protected for years to come. Moreover, these panels boast excellent efficiency, which means you can expect optimal energy production and savings on your utility bills.

An inverter is an important component of any solar system, converting the direct current (DC) produced by solar panels into alternating current (AC) that can be used in your home. Our top recommendation is the Sungrow inverter. Depending on your needs, you can opt for capacities ranging from 5 to 10 kW. This inverter is known for its performance and comes with a 10-year product warranty, offering you added peace of mind.

Monitoring your solar system’s performance is important to ensure you’re maximising your energy production and savings. We understand this and offer an optional extra monitoring service for our systems. Connect with our team to get more details about the service.

Grid-connected and off-grid solar systems serve the same primary purpose—to generate electricity using solar energy—but they operate differently and cater to varying needs. A grid-connected solar system, as the name suggests, is connected to the local electricity grid. It allows you to feed any excess electricity you generate back into the grid.


Conversely, an off-grid solar system operates independently of the local electricity grid. It typically requires a more comprehensive setup, including battery storage, to store excess power. Off-grid systems are ideal for remote locations where accessing grid power might be challenging or costly.
