What Size System!
With electricity prices and the cost of living soaring, there’s never been a better time to go solar. Far from being a ‘one size fits all’ solution to your energy needs, there’s a solar PV system perfect for your home and budget. Reliable and cost effective, a 3kW solar system is perfect for the average Aussie family. More popular than a 2kW system, they’re commonly installed and great for average sized households with an average electricity bill. Here’s everything you need to know.

How much does it cost?
When it comes to solar PV systems, quality is closely tied to price. Good quality 3kW solar systems range in price from $2,990 to $5,600. You will find cheaper options, but be wary – you get what you pay for! At Cooper and Co. Electrical we source only the world’s best solar PV systems, delivering them to you at the best possible price.
You also want to be protected if things go wrong. That’s why it’s important to ensure your system comes with a warranty. All our 3kW systems come with a full warranty and local Queensland based support – perfect protection for a long-term investment.
How many panels does it have?
A 3kW solar system has 10 solar PV panels. If you use 370W panels you’ll need at least 22m2 of roof space, as each panel is around 1.6m by 1m in size.
How much power does it generate?
On average, a 3.7kW solar system generates an average of 14.8 kW per day. This equates to around two thirds of the electricity used in a modest Aussie household. However, remember the more power you use, the less you’ll save on your electricity bills. If your household uses a lot of power, a larger system might be more appropriate.
It’s also worth noting the amount of power your 3kW system generates depends on two key factors – your system’s positioning and your location. Some locations receive consistently more sun than others, and you’ll generate more power in summer than in winter. But don’t worry – regardless of your location, our installers will position your system to ensure it receives the most direct sunlight possible, all year round.
And it goes without saying higher quality systems produce better results. By purchasing the highest quality panels and inverters you can afford, you’re setting yourself up for a greater return on your investment.
How much can I save?
A 3.7kW solar system can save you as much as $200 per electricity bill cycle. However, savings tend to average out at about $120 – $180 per billing cycle – around two thirds of the electricity used in a modest household.
As with any solar system, the quality of your system is directly related to the amount of money you’ll save. Higher quality systems yield the best results and provide the best returns on investment.
What’s the average payback period?
If you buy a good quality system, your 3.7kW solar system will pay for itself in 3 years. But as solar offers an immediate pay-off through reduced electricity bills, you’ll be saving real money from day one.
What kind of household does it suit best?
3kW solar systems are perfect for small working families with a pool and an electricity budget of $220 or more per cycle.
