Here are 4 Reasons We Think You Should Consider
You’ve seen solar panels everywhere, even your neighbour is getting them. Are they worth the hype? (spoiler: we think so!). Well here are 4 reasons why you should install solar panels as soon as possible!
They Pay Themselves Off!
Any investment that can pay itself back is a no-brainer, and this is one of the biggest reasons why people get solar panels: they’re a smart investment! Currently a solar panel installation can cost anywhere from $3000 to $7500 or more depending on the size of your system. Solar panels in New South Wales are considerably cheaper than the national average, and with prices at an all-time low, now is a great time to get your solar panel installation booked in!
But the best part: They pay themselves off! The savings from solar panels can be huge, and you can achieve a return of investment anywhere from 5 to 10 years. This depends on a wide-range of factors, from location to roof angle, how much sun you get and how much electricity you and your family use. 10 years might sound like a long time, but with a 20 year warranty, you will really see the savings add up! To keep your panels operating at full efficiency, make sure your panels are cleaned professionally! This keeps dirt and grime from blocking any light that can generate you electricity
They Save You Money!
Solar panels are an investment, but they also save you money. The solar power generated by solar panels is completely free. After the initial solar panel installation cost, your only ongoing expense will be maintenance (which can vary depending on where you live). That free power you are generating can go to off-setting your home’s energy, reducing your power bill dramatically! Even better, if you are generating excess energy, that energy is sold back onto the grid. If you generate more power than you use, you might receive a cheque in the mail instead of a bill, how great is that!
You might want to go one step further and get a battery installed. You can then store solar energy when the sun’s out, and use that stored power when it isn’t. This means you could be completely self-sufficient! Or you could sell that excess power storage capability for even more money, increasing your Return on Investment time and decreasing your power bill further.
