It’s no secret that solar energy is a great way to save money on your electricity bill. But did you know solar panels are also good for the environment? Solar panel installers help thousands of Australians by providing them with free solar energy. This reduces their environmental footprint and provides them with an easy way to save money on their electricity bills.
To learn more about solar power, let’s dive in and examine 9 reasons why you should consider using solar energy in your home or business today!
#1 Solar panels are healthier for the environment
Solar energy is renewable, so it’s a better alternative to non-renewable energy sources such as coal. Installing solar panels doesn’t produce any waste or pollution during the solar panel installation process, aside from some noise and heat production at times.
Forget about expensive coal plants polluting our atmosphere with greenhouse gases or paying more to your electricity supplier that continues to increase prices with no end in sight. Instead of wasting valuable resources, solar energy optimizes a renewable source – the sun!
#2 Solar energy is a great way to save money on your electricity bills
Yes, when your source of energy is free – you pay less for electricity bills. A solar energy system is an investment that you will recover in around five years. And you get free electricity from day one!
#3 Solar panels have never been cheaper
Due to advancements in technology and manufacturing techniques, solar power systems have drastically dropped in price over recent years. A solar installer can give you more information on how much your solar energy system would cost. Plus, there are government incentives available.
#4 Solar panels can increase the value of your home up to 30%
In certain areas, solar installations are eligible for solar incentives that will lower the cost of a photovoltaic system by hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Not only does this help reduce electricity bills, but it also increases property values and makes your house more attractive to potential buyers in the future.
#5 Solar panels are long-lasting
Photovoltaic panels typically last about 25 years, and homeowners can expect to see a return on their initial solar panel investment within the first few years of use. They aren’t fickle or fragile solar cells either – they’re made from silicon dioxide (sand) and are durable!
#6 Battery storage gives you energy independence
Off-grid living has many advantages, and battery storage solar power systems are becoming the norm in Australia. With solar panels …….
