Swimming pools and spas are great for cooling off on a summer's day. Yet, they can also consume huge amounts of energy and water.
According to the Australian Government’s Department of Industry, for a typical home, maintaining an in-ground pool can account for up to 30 percent of a household's energy bills. A pool pump can be the largest user of electricity in a home—sometimes using more energy than your washing machine, clothes dryer and dishwasher combined!

The pace of technology is astounding, especially in the solar industry where companies are driven to create more innovative, efficient and high-energy performance systems than ever before.
CSA Services believe if you invest wisely now in the right solar energy system you will see long-term financial savings. You can also have a positive impact on the health of our planet for future generations.
In fact, with the abundance of sunshine in Queensland it’s not uncommon for households (who have solar energy) to save upwards of 25% or more on their power bill. And, with systems like “The Edge” from CSA Services, which is compatible with the new Tesla storage system, you will be prepared to harness energy from the sun to light the dark and have a truly future-proof and integrated system.

During the day solar modules capture the sun's energy and convert it to electricity using photovoltaic (PV) cells.
The charge controller or energy regulator prevents overcharge which results in out-gassing of the batteries, as well as keeping electrical storage in the batteries from discharging to the solar modules at night.

The inverter, which converts DC to AC power that can be used in your home, can make a huge difference to the performance of your solar panels. Traditionally, one central inverter would cover an entire residential solar system.

A photovoltaic (PV) solar system is made up of multiple solar panels called the solar array. This array absorbs the energy of a specific range of available sunlight and converts it into electrical energy. The panels are roof mounted at the correct aspect and elevation so that the maximum amount of available sunlight is received and converted.
