Solar power


With its mostly clear skies, the NT is a hotspot for solar energy. Rooftop solar using photovoltaic (PV) panels is a relatively cheap and easy way to reduce your energy bill and your climate impact.

It involves installing solar panels on your rooftop which turn the sun’s natural energy into electricity through an inverter.  When you’re not using the electricity, it feeds into the grid. Or if you connect the inverter to a battery the energy can be saved here until you need it. Check out COOLmob's Guide to Going Solar for more information. 

Installing a solar hot water system is also a cheap and easy way to make the most of the free solar energy we receive in the NT and reduce your energy bills.
