Avoid power bill shock, go solar

  • 08 May 2020


 

Did you experience a bill shock when you laid eyes on your last power bill?

In the last six weeks home has become more than just a place to rest and spend time with the family. Our homes have been repurposed to be the new workplace, an alternative gym, a classroom for the kids and a place of entertainment.

The result of our life entirely lived at home is that more energy is being used to power devices like computers, printers and speakers for our home office and home schooling. Lights and air conditioners might be used more, as we spend more time inside.

Five key advantages of “going solar”

1. Say goodbye to high power bills

When you own a solar photovoltaic system, a high power bill is something you won’t have to stress about anymore!

The sun will be your power source, so you can become energy independent which will reduce your energy costs.

2. The environment will thank you for it

Solar power is 100 percent renewable and clean which helps combat climate change. The energy is generated by sunlight, so solar power doesn’t give off harmful waste bi-products and there are no direct greenhouse gas emissions.

A solar photovoltaic is a way more environmentally friendly alternative to sourcing power from oil and gas drilling or coal mining. It reduces Australia’s dependence on fossil fuels. While oil, gas and coal are limited resources, renewable energy can constantly be replenished.

3. Solar panels can generate power, even without direct sunlight

Solar panels absorb the sunlight and convert it into power and the great thing is that the panels can capture different parts of the sun’s light spectrum. While you’ll get the most out of a sunny day, electricity can still be produced when it’s cloudy.

Any excess power generated by the solar panels can be stored in a solar battery, so you can use it later, instead of feeding it back into the grid.

4. A solar PV system adds market value

Solar photovoltaic systems are in high demand, so if you’re planning to sell or rent your home, it’s a great idea to have a solar PV system installed to increase the value of your property.

5. Connect it to the electricity grid

If you ever experience any issues with your system or need more power than you produce or have stored, you can always rely on power from the electrical grid as a back-up.

And vice versa, if you use less power than your solar PV system generates, you could have the option to sell the solar power that you haven’t used back to your electricity retailer.
