5 Advantages of Solar Energy

Auswell Energy shares our top benefits on why solar power is a great addition to your house.

So, you want to be “greener” but you’re unsure of where to start. Solar energy is a great way to introduce a sustainable practice into your life and is the perfect solution to lowering your impact on the environment while gaining additional benefits. Our experts at Auswell Energy have outlined the top advantages of owning solar energy in Australia.

1. Saving You from High Electrical Bills

We’ve all held an electrical bill in our hand that’s gobsmacked us by the amount that’s due. By installing solar panels on your home, your electrical bill will surprise you in an entirely different way. Not only is solar energy great for the environment, but it’s also great for your bank account too. Now you can spend your summer and winters not feeling guilty for using the utilities you need.

2. Your Property Will Increase Its Value

With the installation of solar panels, your property will immediately increase. Most Australians love solar panels since it instantly means a lower power bill. When you eventually sell your property, you can rest assured knowing that the money you spent installing them will come back to you in an increased value for your property. If you feel compelled to reduce your environmental footprint, installing solar panels will immediately decrease the demand your home has on electricity from the grid.

3. The Australian Government Will Support You

Additional to the great benefits of owning solar panels, as listed above, is the Government support available for funding the installation of your solar panels. To reach their renewable energy target and lower emissions, the Australian Government has introduced a new financial aid called Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs). This essentially means that you will receive a discount on the purchase and installation of your solar panels.

4. Helpful For Those in the City and Out

Another great benefit of owning solar energy is that it’s supportive of those who live in the suburbs and rurally. With the placement of homes rurally and the amount of heat and light they receive in all seasons, rural solar energy installations can have an even greater return on investment. It’s also a great opportunity for those who want something a bit off the grid, since there are fewer services to repair and less electrical shortages when using solar. Solar energy essentially can give the rural homeowner greater confidence.

5. Low Maintenance = Lower Costs

Solar energy essentially looks after itself, though it may need maintenance in the future, this is a minimal cost compared to the savings on energy bills. When owning solar panels, the only concern you may have to consider is keeping their surfaces cleaned. Most solar energy installations will have an exceptional warranty of up to 25-30 years.

If you’re searching for the perfect way to get out of those large electrical bills while being self-sufficient and supportive of the environment solar energy is for you. For even more benefits of owning solar energy and what your next steps should be, please contact us at Auswell Energy!
