Take the impact of electricity price increases away
Understanding how solar can fit into your life
Certain life changes make switching to solar an attractive option. Perhaps you’re working from home, recently retired or spending time at home with your newborn. But the truth is anyone who uses electricity during the day can benefit from solar. The key is understanding how energy fits into your life now, and in the future. In Australia we enjoy an abundance of sunlight, with Queensland and South Australia averaging eight hours, and New South Wales and Victoria seven hours per day in summer.
Making use of these solar energy producing hours could make a dramatic impact on your total energy costs and your contribution to climate change. PV solar power gives property owners unprecedented control over energy production and consumption. “Getting these two as closely aligned as possible will have a positive effect on your electricity bill.”
Small-scale technology certificates
Another compelling reason to switch to solar sooner rather than later is that Small-scale Technology Certificates are still available.
Small scale renewable energy scheme
There is uncertainty about whether this Small Scale Renewable Energy Scheme will continue, but for now STCs rebates provide significant savings on installation costs. In some states, solar-producing properties are also eligible for feed-in tariffs. Feed-in tariffs are where your energy retailer may pay you a set amount for each kilowatt hour of surplus energy you export to the grid.
THREE GREAT REASONS TO CHOOSE SOLAR ENERGY
1. IT CAN SAVE YOU MONEY: With a short payback time and good return on investment – especially with feed-in tariffs, tax-credits and other incentives – going solar makes financial sense.
2. IT HELPS THE ENVIRONMENT: Solar energy is a mature technology with the potential to play a large part in reducing pollution and solving the challenge of climate change.
3. IT’S RELIABLE: Solar panels are easy to install, require little maintenance and come with a 25-year linear power output warranty and 25 year product warranty.
