4 Reasons Why You Should Make The Switch To Solar Power Energy
You have probably noticed a lot of solar panel systems being installed around your area in recent years. In fact, almost 30% of all properties in Australia now have some form of solar power system installed. With reduced costs and obvious environmental advantages, now is the perfect time for you to reap the benefits of solar power in your home.
At Hitech Solar, we decided to put together this handy guide on the many benefits of solar power in homes. So if you, like many others, are considering installing a system in your household or even your commercial premises, here are some key reasons you should.
1. Help to improve the environment from home
Many of us today are feeling the effects of climate change but are still asking ourselves the question, “how can I make a real difference?”. One of the key benefits of solar power being installed into more homes across Australia is that it will eventually reduce the need for our country to burn fossil fuels and natural gas to produce energy for the electrical grid.
Doing your part for the country now by installing a solar system into your home or business will help us improve the country’s climatic conditions in the future. If we can all make an effort to switch to solar systems, we could see our country lead the way in moving towards a zero-carbon future that will benefit many generations to come.
2. Reduce your electricity bills
Although solar panels are unlikely to stop you from using grid power completely, they will significantly decrease your reliance on the mains power. With power bills often being one of your household’s most costly monthly expenditures, any reduction will always be welcomed. As a general rule, most solar power systems have a financial break-even point of roughly 10 years after installation. However, in areas with a large amount of sunshine, this period can be considerably shorter, meaning you start saving money even sooner.
It is also worth noting that if your house produces more power than it consumes, you can sell the power produced back to your energy provider. You could use this revenue created by your system to offset other household energy bills — another one of the many benefits of solar power installation.
3. Power independence
The energy produced by companies in Australia is generally reliable. However, if you’re living in remote areas where power companies are more reliant on aging or damaged equipment, you are more likely to experience blackouts, power sags and unstable voltage supply from the grid than from your solar system.
As solar systems are wired directly into your house, you are less likely to experience these issues. The independence that solar power can give you from the main grid adds a layer of protection for your home.
4. Solar panels cost less than you think and include excellent warranties
In the past, slow adoption of solar panels was mainly because consumers were concerned about the cost and lifespan of solar panels. Thankfully, with modern systems like those installed by Hitech Solar, this is a concern of the past. But due to technological and production method advancements, costs for solar systems for both commercial and domestic installations have become a lot more affordable. Here at Hitech Solar, we can also arrange 0% finance packages for your system purchase and installation, meaning that your system could cost you even less than your existing monthly electricity bill.
You will be surprised at the reasonable rates at which you can purchase a complete solar system. All the systems that we install come with a 10-year workmanship warranty and a 25-year linear power output warranty. This allows you to reap all the benefits of solar power without any extra financial concerns.
