Haven’t switched to solar yet? If you’re still buying energy from an energy retailer, you’re missing out on some major advantages. As the cost of living in Australia continues to rise, and pollution levels around the world continue to increase, it’s no wonder why solar power is rapidly becoming the world’s most important source of energy.
Here are three main benefits you’re missing if you haven’t gone solar.
A Clean Way to Save Money on Rising Energy Costs
If you want to save money on your energy bill, there’s no better (or cleaner) way than solar power. Solar energy not only provide a small amount of savings each year; with an efficient solar power system installed in your home, you can reduce your energy bill by up to 40, 50, or even 60%. That’s not a dime! Because solar power generation is so efficient, paying the cost of an average solar energy system is much less than buying power from the grid. And even if you only install a few panels, you can still dramatically reduce your power consumption and energy bills.
After all, the sun shines on your home for free all year round, so why not use some of that sunlight to create energy for your home? And on top of that, solar power generation has almost no impact on the environment, as solar panels produce no air pollution and emit no hazardous waste. So when you save, you also save the earth.
Drop (or Give Back to) the Grid
With a good solar power system, you will not only reduce your dependence on the local energy grid, you can even go off grid completely. This means that in addition to saving money, you are also securing your energy independence. And if you generate enough energy through your solar system, you can sell the power back to your local grid, making a profit for yourself and reducing your community’s dependence on other, less environmentally friendly sources of energy.
Supporting the Local Green Energy Economy
When you install a solar power system in your home or business, you are also supporting the local green energy economy. The solar installation business is a thriving local economy in Australia and around the world. When you switch to solar, you know you are supporting a local business rather than a large multinational corporation. If you’re in Queensland, find your local Cairns solar installer who knows how to get the job done right.
So what are you waiting for? The solar revolution is now in full swing, and there are many benefits available for anyone who wants to participate. When you invest in a solar energy system, everyone benefits: The environment wins when you rely more heavily on green energy, local businesses win when you support the local green energy economy, and most importantly, you win when you save money and become energy independent. There’s no reason not to go solar today.
