Cooling and heating your home is something that needs to be done to not only make it more comfortable, but actually livable on the hottest and coldest days of the year.
There are various efficiencies you can add like window treatments, double glazing, and more durable overall designs, but even so, Canberra and the nearby Southern Tablelands get pretty hot and cold all year round. which means you’ll need extra help turning on appliances to adjust the indoor temperature, which in turn means using a noticeable amount of energy from one source or another.
The best source of energy in terms of environmental impact and electricity bills is to add a solar system to your home (or business for that matter).
Best of all, integrating your own battery storage into this system further reduces your dependence on the national grid by continuing to provide your home with its own power supply overnight.
In terms of how much energy your solar system needs to operate and store, it depends on individual needs, and the Mondiaux Solar team will be happy to calculate your needs based on your previous usage.
That said, to give you a rough idea of what might be needed, “6.6kW is the most common solar size for residential,” said Melissa Zhang of Mondials Solar.

Then they can design, install and maintain a customized solar solution for your needs.
Another thing Melissa pointed out is the ACT government’s Sustainable Household Scheme.
As stated on the program’s website, “The program offers zero-interest loans ranging from $ 2,000 to $ 15,000 to eligible ACT households. Get started today by requesting quotes from eligible vendors.”
Mondiaux Solar was founded by director Bin Wang. Locally owned and operated in Canberra, they also serve customers in the NSW area.
Currently celebrating their 10th anniversary, “we are ACT’s leading solar energy retailer,” said Melissa.
