Q. What are the benefits of going solar?
While most of Energy Stuff’s clients have already invested in Solar power it is good to go back over why investing in Solar is so worthwhile and why it will offer even more benefits in the future. Solar Power can save you money.
Installing Solar power enables you to generate your own electricity. By using your own electricity rather than buying it from your electricity company, you will save money as every kW/h of electricity you can use from your solar system is a kW/h of electricity you do not have to buy from your electricity company.
Environmental Benefits – By using electricity generated from solar panels, we reduce the need to generate electricity from fossil fuels like coal and gas which create carbon dioxide (CO2). This can reduce the potential for global warming and can create a more sustainable cleaner energy mix, as long as the solar panels will last a long time.
Energy Independence – By owning your own Solar system, you have the capacity to create your own electricity. This reduces your reliance on the electricity grid and electricity retailers etc and increases your control over your future electricity needs, expenses and lifestyle especially if you add batteries to your system in the future.
Property Value – there are increasing studies that show that installing a quality solar system on a home may increase property value. Home buyers are increasingly recognising that a home with quality solar panels installed will have lower electricity costs.
Energy reliability – High-quality solar power systems are a reliable power source. The sun rises and sets every day, while the sun shines, solar panels will make electricity. While the weather and the seasons will vary, the amount of electricity that the panels make are predictable. You can also increase the financial benefits of your solar system by changing the times you operate your household appliances. For example, turning your washing machine on as you leave the home in the morning and avoiding washing your clothes at night allows your solar system to power your machine during the day. With the help of lithium-ion batteries, which are becoming more affordable, one can also harvest solar power during the day and use it at night.
Energy Monitoring – Monitoring for Solar Systems are just another part of the industry that has dramatically developed in the last five years. The improvement in these services can show energy production and manage them in real time. These sort of attributes combined with you managing your usualy of energy to times when your system is producing sufficient amounts of energy makes for large savings on your bill.
How we help
If looking into a solar system or replacing an old solar system interests you then please contact us on 1300 656 205 and talk with our solar specialists for more information and options.
If your current system is giving you issues then you may need a checkup with an accredited Solar installer. If your system is over five years old it is possible that some components will start to give you grief as some of the early installations included parts and components that are no longer available due to quality. If your system needs repair or just a check-up then call us today.
If you are really keen to not just monitor but actively manage your energy, then I suggest you look at a more comprehensive Smart Energy platform. One I recommend is Emberpulse which offers great feedback on the energy produced by your solar system and the energy used within the home as well as appliance automation. It provides real-time alerts for better energy management and if your system goes down with all of these backed with money back guarantees.Call now Message Us
