Did you know? The Australian continent has the highest solar radiation per square metre of any continent as well as some of the best solar energy resource in the world…so it simply makes sense to want to harness the power of this natural resource whilst at the same time reduce our greenhouse gas and CO2 emissions. It’s time to go solar, and here are just a few reasons why;
Save Money by using Renewable Energy
And for even better news, now the average residential solar system is cheaper than ever, meaning that the average household can install a significantly bigger solar power system than was previously thought. With this reduction in overall cost for solar energy, homes and businesses stand to save even more on electricity bills.
Solar Power is a Source of Clean Energy
The most commonly known fact about solar energy is that it represents a clean, green source of energy. In the increasingly green climate, it’s no surprise that reducing your carbon footprint and adding to Australia’s Renewable Energy Target (RET) is a priority for many homeowners and businesses alike. Solar energy is the cleanest, most abundant source of renewable energy, it is non-polluting and is sustainable and limitless, unlike fossil fuels.
Operational Benefits of using Solar Power
For business, in particular, utilising a renewable energy source is of particular benefit. Not only can you increase productivity (the use of phones, laptops, equipment) without having to worry about the power bill, also, the reduced power bills overall mean that more of your funds are available to spend on growing your business.
Increase the Value of your Home/Business
In the increasingly green climate, investing in a solar power system could be a great asset when it comes to selling your home or business at a later date. Many Australians believe homes with solar are more valuable than the equivalent house without. The value added to your home by installing a solar power system can depend on the quality of solar panels installed as well as the number of panels installed. There are different types of materials available on the market today and taking into consideration the quality when making this type of investment is very important.
Solar Power Systems are Low Maintenance
Solar panels generally require very little maintenance to function. The only thing they need is light cleaning to make sure dirt, leaves, and other debris aren’t obstructing the sun’s rays. It is generally recommended that you perform a quick solar panel cleaning between a couple of times per year. The good news is that this doesn’t require much work at all. In general, maintaining your solar panels is pretty easy. Just be sure to get a good warranty and good insurance and you’ll enjoy clean renewable energy for years to come.
