Benefits of a Solar Power System

Installing a solar power system on the roof of your home or business can help fight off the inflationary costs of the electricity provider. Although we may not recognize it, the average Australian consumer spends more on the same relative amount of energy they consume each year. It can be observed that utility companies continue to raise their rates and add miscellaneous tariffs, fees, etc. When investing in a solar power system, you are able to generate your own energy on site and thus reduce your dependency on power provided by the utility. In turn, you have a fixed cost to your energy versus a continuously-rising variable rate offered by the utility company.

The long-term results of installing a solar power system includes huge reduction in carbon emissions while aiding to counter the increasing pollution and the adverse environmental conditions created by traditional sources of fossil-fuel based energy generally used by the grid.

Once you install a solar power system and it is turned on, your savings can begin. Solar panels provide you with energy each and every day, and the typical life of a solar power system is well beyond 25 years. Yes, that means panels can still make energy even on days that are a bit gloomy, although not nearly as well as when the sun is shining bright in the sky. Still, the day-in and day-out production if recorded over the next 25 years truly makes solar panels an incredible asset.

Installing a solar power system to the roof of your home or business can add “hidden” equity right back into your property. Currently, there are no taxes assessed for investing in a renewable energy asset. These savings extend to any sales tax or increase in property tax due to the solar assets equity bonus. In layman’s terms, solar arrays will add value to the property for the very same reasons they provide ongoing utility cost savings and do so without a penalty in increased taxation!

In addition to adding value to your property, rooftop solar panels can even help protect your roof from the damaging effects of the sun. Solar modules are specifically designed to capture the sun’s irradiation or light energy, which is a main factor in roof deterioration. By installing rooftop solar, you are basically providing an extra layer of protection for your roof that invariably extends the life of the roof and saves you from an early roof repair.

The Impact of Your Carbon Footprint

Most of our actions generate carbon emissions, which contribute to accelerating global warming. Climate change poses a threat to species across the globe. As extreme weather threatens humans directly, other broad changes in habitats like the arctic, rainforests, and the ocean, are endangering wildlife —which we depend on!

Sustainability experts suggest that changing our lifestyles can significantly decrease the amount of planet-warming emissions we unintentionally release into the atmosphere as a result of our daily lives. We have gathered some statistics to help you better understand your personal impact on the planet and what actions you can take to reduce your carbon footprint, decreasing your personal impact on our climate.

Solar panels provide home and business owners an access point to generate energy that is both environmentally and financially responsible. In fact, it is actually cheaper to harness energy from solar than traditional energy production such as coal or even natural gas!

The Australian population is beginning to understand and fully grasp is the plethora of benefits that extend from investing in a solar power system and the multiple positive impacts that solar provides immediately as well as in the future.
