Many Australian families are jumping into greater savings with solar power, so why not you?
Being environmentally friendly and cost savings make up some of the greatest reasons to dive into solar. But there’s more.
In this blog, Solar System Australia discusses the reasons as to why you should start considering a solar system installation as a homeowner.
With so much new green technology, everyone’s jumping onto the bandwagon of investing into solar panels. As of December 31, 2020, 2.68 million households in Australia have a solar system installed in their home.
There are also incentives from the Federal Government to help discount the price of installation with the small scale renewable energy scheme, and extra help depending on your circumstances and State Government.
With that said, let us begin!
- Environmentally Friendly
In case you don’t know already (but we’re sure you do!) solar panels provide a fantastic way to power your home appliances through green, clean energy. By buying a solar panel installation for your home’s rooftop, you can use pure clean energy instead of relying solely on harsh fossil fuels. Besides using this energy, the energy you send to the grid will also help offset the carbon of the electricity you use later into the night.
- Achieve Better Savings
When it comes to things you invest in your home, there’s often no better motivator than money. Solar panels, especially in Australia, can easily generate lots of electricity. Letting you not only rely more on your own power, and not pay those extra fees in peak periods, but you can earn money back from your local energy provider too.
- Gain Greater Energy Independence
Another reason that many homeowners are investing in solar panels is to stick it to the large fossil fuel-dependent energy companies. Using less from the mains powers is more environmentally friendly and means more cost savings for you. But it also means that they make less profit and helps send the message to them to switch over to more cleaner types of power.
Extra (with battery storage): On top of that, if you install a hybrid solar system, you maintain a reliable source of energy even when the mains power cuts out.
- Australia’s Good for the Sun
Not many countries are as lucky to be blessed with just as much sunlight as we are. All the free solar radiation available gives you a greater opportunity to put panels use. Forget California, or the Mediterranean Coast – Australia really beats them out of the water in how much of a sunny country we are. Therefore, if there’s any location that could best put this technology to use – it’s us!
- Increase Your Property Value
Did you know that more than half Australians when surveyed said they would pay more for a solar powered home? Installing a solar system on your rooftop raises the value of your property. It’s a great way to stand out in the market, whether you are looking to sell or rent.
There are so many benefits with installing solar panels on your rooftop. With the change to greater environmental practices and hassle-free way to really save, it’s one of the most popular smart technologies people are investing into their homes.
