Solar Briefly Overtakes Coal As Top Power Source

Australians recently caught a glimpse of the future of power with solar briefly overtaking coal as the primary source of power all across the country. That’s right, for about 30 minutes on the 19th of August solar power took the top spot for power generation. This is great news, but you may be surprised to hear that this isn’t actually the first time this has happened. However energy experts note that this is the first time this has happened under ‘normal’ conditions. What does that mean? Usually when we see a surge in solar it is from a coal shortage or an incredibly bright sunny day.

The cause for solar power taking the top spot for energy generation in this case wasn’t due to coal shortage or an unusually sunny day. There were no unusual factors at play. This shows just how quickly solar power is growing as an energy choice for businesses and homes. You can find out more about solar shining as the future of energy generation in this article from The ABC.

Why Is Solar Power Getting So Popular?

Solar power is the fastest growing source of renewable energy in Australia, and it isn’t hard to see why. It is the most affordable, efficient and cost-effective alternative energy source available to homeowners and businesses. Within less than 7 years you can pay off your solar panels and be generating clean, free electricity.

With power bills rising every year, families and businesses across Australia are making the smarter choice to switch to solar. There has never been a better time for you to do the same. With solar power, you can make a positive impact on the environment, become less reliant on the grid and generate your own electricity to save money on your power bills!
