Why Should Australians Get Solar Panels?

We are currently installing record numbers of solar panels throughout Australia, primarily in Brisbane and Newcastle. More and more Australians each and every year are acting upon the realization that the future belongs greener, cheaper energy.

In this section, we are going to discuss the reasons why we are making it our mission to install as many solar panels in Newcastle and Brisbane as possible.

Reduce Your Energy Bills

For many Australians, the electricity bill is typically one of the biggest bill of each quarter. One of the most obvious and immediate benefits of solar panels is that your bill is going to be dramatically reduced. With some of our more advanced installations, it’s possible to get your bill down to literally nearly nothing.

Over a long enough timeline, solar panels are an investment that will not only offset the cost of installation, but they will also save you money. On average your panels will reduce your energy bill enough to pay for themselves within about 7 to 8 years.

After that time all the energy they generate will be direct savings. Estimates vary depending upon installation type (if battery is included), but it is not uncommon to have an ROI of around 20% on a solar installation over its lifetime.

That’s better than any interest rate a bank could give you. 

Invest In Your Home

Solar panels are one of the most efficient and reliable ways to increase the value of your property with minimum to no effort. Appraisers are already taking into account the added value of  what a solar installation brings to potential buyers. Due to this, solar powered homes often outperform other properties in both the Brisbane and Newcastle housing markets. Once solar homes are listed, they tend to get more attention and in turn sell quicker.

Protect Against Rising Energy Costs

Energy costs are slowly but steadily increasing year to year. This is a trend that shows no sign of slowing down, especially with the ever increasing difficulty of extracting fossil fuels to run our power stations. By installing solar panels, you dramatically reduce your reliance on energy from expensive energy companies. This means that when the prices inevitably increase you won’t be affected.

Protect The Environment

We are lucky to have some of the best coastlines in the world between Newcastle and Brisbane. We are surrounded by natural beauty that is being ravaged by our planet’s reliance on fossil fuels. It is estimated that around 38% of all global greenhouse gas emissions are related to buildings, much of that is due to electricity generation.

By installing solar in your home you are doing your bit to ensure that we are able to save the planet from global warming and preserve its natural beauty for future generations to come. If every single household installed solar panels in Brisbane, it would make a serious dent in Australia’s total carbon footprint.

We Have A Lot Of Sunshine

Perhaps the most enticing thing that makes many Newcastle and Brisbane residents consider solar panels is the great weather our area is blessed with. We are lucky to have a huge amount of sunny days compared to some parts of the world. The more sunlight the receptors on the panels receive, the more electricity they generate (which means a bigger, better ROI for the homeowner).

And More...

These are just a few of the many reasons why we think that every property in Newcastle and Brisbane should have solar panels. Rooftop by rooftop we are working with countless residents each and every year to make our country, and the world, a cleaner, greener place.
