Solar panels on a house roof - Auswell Energy

Can I Afford Solar Panels?

Auswell Energy breaks down how you can determine whether you are able to afford a solar system on your home.

Are considering joining the ever-growing number of households in Brisbane that are making the switch to solar? If you are, you’re probably in the process of weighing up the upfront costs with the energy savings that you will experience over time. As providers of Brisbane solar power solutions, we outline the aspects you need to consider when determining whether you will be able to afford solar panels.

Financing Options

One of the aspects that can deter individuals from adding solar power on their homes is the upfront costs that installation can incur. To help lessen the blow of these costs, some solar installers provide financing options so that you can pay this amount off over time. Talk to Auswell Energy about how we can provide you with manageable financing options.

Government Incentives and Rebates

Depending on where you live, you may be able to access government incentives and rebates for your solar installation. Thus, before you book in your installation, you should check your state government website to determine if you are eligible. Queensland is expected to be receiving new solar rebates soon, so make sure to stay tuned so you don’t miss out on potential savings.

Energy Consumption

It can also be helpful to weigh up how much you are spending on electricity now, and compare it to what you will spend with your solar installation and energy usage over time. You can do this with the help of a solar calculator, or contact Auswell Energy – providers of Brisbane solar power solutions. We can provide more in-depth information on how much you can be expected to save on your energy bill over time.

Installation Considerations

There are specific physical aspects of your home that may contribute to how much your solar installation will cost. This could include complex roof structures that make the installation process more difficult and time-consuming, or whether your system will need microinverters or optimisers. It’s best to have your home inspected by an expert to determine whether your installation will incur a higher cost.

Solar energy can save you a lot of money on your electricity bill over time, and with the help of financing options and government incentives, the installation costs can be very affordable.
