Installing a Solar System is a Great Solution
For many of us, the first half of 2020 came with a number of shocks and changes to the way we did things and now as most parts of the country start to adapt to a new, post-lockdown normal, the shocks are set to continue as our power bills start to arrive, now is the time to consider a solar system.
On average, Australian households used over 100% more electricity between March and May. We were home more, so the increase makes sense, but it is having a big impact on family budgets and making us look at ways we can be smarter and save money on household utilities.
Saving Money on Electricity Usage
When you have traditional grid power supply, there are things you can do to reduce your power consumption which can have a positive impact on your bill.
Some of them are already quite well known, such as the impact standby power can have and how setting your heating or cooling temperature a degree or two cooler can save you a whopping 10% off your energy costs.
Another way to save money on your power bill is to always buy the most energy efficient appliance you can afford, but this strategy is only effective when you are already in the market for something to replace or upgrade household appliances; the adage “spend money to make money” doesn’t necessarily apply to forking out to replace something like your fridge for the sole purpose of saving money on your power bill!
You can also look at installing a smart meter or changing to an off peak tariff, though both of these options have costs associated with them and need an electrician or your power company to complete the work which can initially negate some of the savings you stand to make.
Saving Money with the Sun
With solar electricity, your rates are locked in for a (long) period of time which means you’ll be paying less for your power no matter how the world changes around us.
There’s never been a better time to connect to solar electricity at your home either, because you could be just a week away from cheaper electricity pricing.
