There are many reasons why your home or business should install a solar system.
Once you have a installed a solar system on your roof, it will continue to generate free electricity from the sun year after year. This means you can substantially reduce or even eliminate your electricity bills, giving you the peace of mind that you’re doing what you can to keep your bills as low as possible while still enjoying the benefits of all the gadgets that electricity powers.
The Federal Government’s Solar Credits Scheme provides thousands of dollars towards purchasing and installing your system. In addition, state based Feed-In Tariff Schemes pay you for any excess electricity you generate and don’t use.
There aren’t many financial investments better than solar. You’ll be saving on your electricity bill from day one. This translates into a return on your initial investment of 15 -30% per annum for many years to come and your solar energy system will pay for itself in around 3-6 years, depending on the system size.
Energy efficient homes have been proven to sell at a significant premium to less efficient ones. Imagine telling a prospective buyer that they could receive a cheque every 2 months instead of a bill. With rising electricity prices, buyers will increasingly focus on energy efficiency and solar when considering which home to purchase.
Electricity generated via your own solar system means that you’ll draw less electricity from the grid. This means less coal is burnt at power stations reducing the use of the biggest source of carbon pollution. Installing a system is the single most effective step you can take towards reducing your carbon footprint.
