It is a myth that the Ballarat region isn’t suited to solar power! Germany’s winters are far more brutal than Ballarat and they have the highest take up of solar in the world. It is true that in lower light areas, mono panels with their higher efficiency perform better, produce more and save you more. Cola Solar have installed many solar power systems in Ballarat, Alfredton, as well as Creswick, Daylesford, Clunes, Talbot and the Maryborough region.

Solar energy for your home or business holds a number of benefits. You can save significant money on your power bills, reduce climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improve public health by releasing less pollutants into the atmosphere. Panels also save you maintenance costs on your roof, protecting it from wear and tear.
