If you are considering solar installation on your Adelaide property, Solar Energy Adelaide is available to help you decide.
Solar panel installation will slash your energy bills significantly, saving you money and contributing to a more sustainable future. Have you ever felt that solar panel installation was an expense you couldn’t afford? You’re not alone, many Australians feel the same – the good news is that it is now more affordable than ever.
The Benefits of Solar Installation For Your Adelaide Property?
You’ve likely heard numerous people from government bodies to environmental advocates promoting the benefits of solar and there are several good reasons why.
You Save Money In The Long-term
Yes installing solar requires a lump sum up-front, but this investment pays off in time. According to Domain:
“Recent analysis shows solar panels can pay for themselves within six to 10 years of installation. ACCC figures reveal there has been a 63 per cent increase in electricity prices over the past 10 years.”
These prices are quite high. If current feed-in tariffs maintain, you should see your solar system pay itself off in 2-3 years. Solar systems work by powering your household electricity usage whilst the sun is shining. This means that you still need to have electricity provided from a retailer for when your solar is not powering your house such as at nighttime.
Even if you use the majority of your electricity during the evening, the benefit of solar is that any excess energy you generate from your system during the day is fed back into the State’s grid. You receive a financial credit for this excess energy which comes up as a reduction on your next electricity bill! Some retailers even apply solar credits to any gas your household uses.
Alternatively, you can choose to install a battery alongside your solar system which will store the excess energy to power your home when the sun is not shining, reducing how much electricity you need to purchase from a retailer.
When you get in touch with Solar Energy Adelaide, we will work with you to understand how you use your household electricity and provide you with a breakdown of when you are likely to see the cost of your solar installation paid off.
As an added bonus, there are some councils in South Australia, such as the City of Adelaide, which offer financial incentives for installing sustainable, clean energy. Making solar installation in Adelaide more affordable than ever.
The burning of fossil fuels is one of the biggest threats our environment faces. When burned, fossil fuels release carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the air. These gases trap heat in our atmosphere and as a result, are the biggest contributor to climate change and global warming.
Solar energy contains no nasties and simply harnesses a free resource we have in abundance – sunlight! The panels convert sunlight into electricity with zero harmful emissions meaning you can rest easy at night, knowing that you have done your bit for the environment.
Low Maintenance Costs
Solar panels, once installed, require very minimal maintenance and rarely need repairs. A simple clean to remove excess dust and dirt is all that is required to keep your home generating safe, clean energy.
