As the demand and prices of electricity have kept on rising, the world looks at renewable energy sources for its power needs. In recent years, solar energy has become a popular renewable energy source because of its falling costs and improving efficiencies.
Homes across Australia are making the solar transition to create a clean energy economy and contribute towards global climate change. Residential solar systems are becoming the need of the hour as they are the future of home energy production and are considered a smart investment. Apart from being economical, solar power provides benefits to the environment. Our experienced solar consultants will provide the required help, support, and the best solar solutions for your energy consumption needs.
A solar system is a setup that generates electricity by utilizing the solar energy system. A typical solar system consists of solar panels (which absorb sunlight), an inverter (which converts DC into AC), a mounting structure (that holds the panels in place), batteries (to store the extra power generated), a grid box, and balance of systems (wires, nuts, etc.). A solar system comes in various sizes.
Advantages of Residential Solar System
Solar power systems derive energy from the sun. Panels on your roof help reduce carbon emissions and bring down our collective dependence on fossil fuels.
By installing solar, you’re not only reducing your carbon footprint, but also doing your bit to increase renewable energy generation when you export energy from the panels to the grid.
Reduce what you pay for electricity
You will meet some of your energy needs with the electricity your solar power system has generated. This should mean you will pay less for the power you use.
Not only can you reduce what you pay for your electricity, but you can also get paid for any surplus power you generate by supplying it to the grid. This is called a ‘feed-in-tariff’.
Property value increase
If you’re looking to sell your home, the installation of solar power systems can increase its value.
Based on surveys, most Australians think that solar panels add value to a property, and estimates suggest that a 5kW solar panel installation could add around $29,000 to the value of a house. That’s a bright investment.
Low maintenance costs
Solar power systems generally don’t require a lot of maintenance. You only need to keep them relatively clean; cleaning them a couple of times per year will do the job.
After covering the initial cost of the solar system, you can expect very little spending on maintenance and repair work. The average cost of an annual inspection with a qualified inspector is about $150.
Plenty of finance options are now available, which requires zero upfront payment and thus making most household's solar dream a reality.
So now instead of paying the high electricity bills divert your funds to solar loan repayments and after a few years enjoy your free sun's energy.
Great Return On Investment
The ongoing high solar rebates (which is reducing every year) and high feed-in-tariffs mean switching to solar now is super affordable.
Furthermore, plenty of interest-free financing options and our 25-year solar performance Warranty make going solar a no-brainer.
