Power Bill? Nah, no thanks!
Get ready to experience a whole new way to power your home.
Minimise your power bills and reduce your carbon footprint.
By installing Solar you’re choosing to live a more energy efficient lifestyle that will impact positively on your home
The idea of going with Solar is to self- consume as much generated energy as possible to save buying it from the energy retailer, the additional bonus is of course being able to ‘sell’ any surplus energy back to the power retailers too.
As energy prices continue to rise and Solar Panel solutions continue to improve and become cheaper to buy, more and more people are realising the true benefits of Solar Energy for their home.
How do solar panels work?
Solar Energy is, when simply put, energy that is harnessed from the sun and turned into useable energy for your home.
Solar Panels turn the suns energy into a DC current which is then transformed into an AC current by a device called an Inverter. The Inverter is connected to a switchboard and the AC energy is distributed to the installation via that switchboard.
The concept is a very easy one. Once the panels are installed there are no moving parts, so maintenance is kept to a minimum. Only cleaning and basic servicing required on an annual basis.
Grid-connect. This system allows you to generate your own electricity, when you are generating more than you need at any time the excess is sent back to the grid and your electricity retailer buys this off you. If you need more than you are generating, you bring the extra in from the grid and your electricity retailer charges you for the additional power.
Hybrid. This system has a special hybrid inverter and battery storage. The batteries allow you to store some of your excess power to use at nighttime plus gives you some capabilities in the event of a power outage. Everything else works like a Grid-connect system.
Off Grid. This system has no connection to the grid and you solely rely on your solar panels, battery banks and most likely a back-up generator.
What is right for you?
Auric Solar are happy to discuss the benefits of each system type. All customers have different needs, expectations, and budgets so there is no “one size fits all”. Grid connect is a great starting point and the most common system type. However, as power prices increase so is the uptake of battery storage.

The team at Auric Electrical and Solar are so professional and friendly. We are new to Tinwald and needed some lights installed, fan installed, outdoor power socket and also Solar Installed the team were very quick to get back to us to book in time to do the required jobs and a few I suddenly thought of whilst they were there. All the guys were extremely friendly especially to our husky x dog called Hope who thought she was in heaven. I would totally recommend Auric Electrical & Solar to anybody looking for an electrical company that is reliable, honest, excellent workmanship, and very easy to communicate with. Thank you to all the boys that came and made it easy for me and my husband. Last but not least Paige is so friendly and easy to deal with on the phone getting everything booked in. The whole team is a credit to the owners! Thanks guys

We had done quite a lot of research and had decided that the timing was right to invest in solar power, with the solar system prices beginning to drop, and the performance of the systems giving a good overall return on the money invested. We were also unhappy with the way that electricity prices were continuing to rise and wanted to do something that has a conservation and resource saving, eco-friendly approach.
We have been very pleased with the friendly, professional and helpful approach from Pete. He was very upfront about the costs, how to choose a power company and the potential savings. He was efficient, approachable and easy to contact. We are absolutely delighted with the results and still look forward to getting the power bill each month, especially over the summer where the bill has often been zero.

We found Auric through a website called Solar Compare. They got back to us straight away, and Pete came around and gave us a very good explanation of the solar system that would suit us, and once the decision was made the work was completed within 2 weeks.
We are now comparing our power bills to the previous year and are saving about $100 a month so far.
After our experience we would definitely recommend Auric to anybody thinking of installing solar at their home or business.
