More SOLSTRÅLE add-ons

SOLSTRÅLE with Smart meter

Adding a smart meter to your system allows consumption monitoring via online app. This can help you maximise your grid independence and provide an energy profile, which can help you make decisions on future add-ons such as battery. This solution includes a different inverter compared to SOLSTRÅLE Basic, one from Sungrow. Adding this feature will increase the price of your solution. Ask Solargain about this option during your phone quotation.

SOLSTRÅLE with Micro inverter

Micro inverters provide design flexibility to your system. They are useful if you have shaded areas limiting your roof space. SOLSTRÅLE includes the Enphase micro inverter. Adding this feature will increase the price of your solution. Ask Solargain about this option during your phone quotation.

In the long term, we would like to find opportunities to deliver to more regions. If you’re not currently in our service area, please still register your interest online, and Solargain will contact you as soon as the service area is extended

Why do we show pricing for a 6.6kW System?

This is the most common system size sold in Australia. That’s because a 5kW inverter is generally the largest inverter you can install without losing a feed in tariff or implementing export limits.

We strongly encourage getting a personalised quote as the recommended size for your home may be smaller or larger. It depends on your consumption pattern, space on your roof, budget, interest in adding battery, the maximum size you are allowed to connect into the grid, among other things. A personalized quote will also help in determining what system size will be relevant for your home to ensure maximum financial return.
