SolarCloud Explained

Find out how we're making solar power available to anyone with internet access

SolarCloud overcomes the reasons why people don't have solar panels on their roof, including:

  • High Upfront costs.
  • Lack of trust in installation companies.
  • It's a complex product that is time consuming and difficult to understand.
  • Not having a roof - live in an apartment, rent or share acommodation.
  • Not having the right kind of roof - the wrong shape, made of the wrong material or face the wrong direction.
  • Aesthetics and not liking the look of solar panels.
  • Wrong place, wrong time - most people are at work when the sun is shining and solar is generated by rooftop panels.
  • When the sun is in the sky we are all at work
  • Feed-in tariffs do not make financial sense - selling your power for 6c during the day only to buy it back at night for 30c.
  • Many The average home owner moves every 7.2 years but traditional solar systems are sold to last 25 yearspeople don't like the look of solar panels

At SolarCloud we believe everyone, everywhere should be able to buy and access solar.

It doesn't matter where you are in the world, if you are renting or own your home, live in an apartment building or even live overseas, solar power is available to you, in the palm of your hand, with SolarCloud.

 

The premise of SolarCloud is that we buy solar panels to reduce our energy bill

 

Traditionally people buy solar panels and install them on their roof to reduce their energy bill.

What is the SolarCloud Difference?

 

What is the SolarCloud Difference?

The question we get asked most often by people is why would I choose SolarCloud over other solar companies out there in the market?
This is what we tell them.

All other solar offsets energy during the day

This means that you aren't getting bang for your buck because most people aren't at home during the day, so these companies are basically offsetting your energy when it is used the least or not being used at all.

SolarCloud is Global

It doesn't matter where you are in the world, or even if you move locally, interstate or overseas - SolarCloud goes with you while your panels continue to generate savings for you in the beautiful sunshine of Australia.

SolarCloud offsets your ENTIRE energy bill

Why would you invest in solar that only offsets your peak off peak shoulder when you could be saving on your entire household energy bill? We place your panels in the most efficient location (where the energy is being used at the time it is produced i.e. commercial rooftops) therefore providing you with greater savings and a better return on your investment.

You can start small and save big

Before SolarCloud solar energy was only available to homes with roofs large enough to accommodate the many panels required to make the system work. With SolarCloud prices start from as little as $499 AUD and you can buy as many panels as you like.

SolarCloud is "solar in the cloud"

No more ugly panels on your roof, no more dealing with cowboy installers, even renters and apartment owners can now have solar. You can monitor the performance and savings generated by your panels from the SolarCloud website on your PC or smart phone. It's as simple as that. No need to worry about maintenance, insurance or replacing system components - We take care of it all for you.

Save Now with SolarCloud

With SolarCloud you start saving minutes after your panels are installed. Because your panels are remotely installed, you also save time: there's no need to take time off to wait for tradesmen and laborious physical installation. SolarCloud's patented technology is the key to a system that is easy and hassle-free.
