Solar for Residential

Are you looking to install solar panels on your home, business or farm?

Maximise your energy efficiency and minimise costs by installing panels, inverters and cables that are tested and proven to perform in Queensland conditions. Many generic and foreign alternatives are unable to withstand the demands of the state’s heavy rain and extreme heat. Don’t waste money on equipment that isn’t built for local conditions.

At Horan and Bird we’ve developed Queensland’s first Renewable Energy Centre. Here, our R&D team continuously studies power output from varying solar panels and combinations. As a result of our research, we know how to optimise your power output based on your roof type, property direction and other key factors.

How does it work?

  • STEP ONE: We’ll have one of our Horan & Bird Solar Specialists look at your situation – they’ll make sure it’s the right solution for your energy usage and check that your home is solar ready.
  • STEP TWO: You can choose a contract period that suits you – with 10 or 15 year terms available.
  • STEP THREE: If you decide to go ahead, you’ll enter into a Solar agreement and we’ll lock in a low solar contract rate^.
  • STEP FOUR: Once all that’s sorted, you will have the solar system installed at a time that suits by Horan and Bird.
  • STEP FIVE:  From then on, you’ll start paying for the solar power you generate at the low energy rate.

* You may incur other costs in order for your property to be solar ready (such as electrical works, cabling or roof repairs).
