The sun is a daily power source there for the taking, so today, we’re serving up the information to get you closer to enjoying the benefits of solar panel installation in Perth.
Is solar panel installation right for my home?
Old home, new home – solar panels are perfect for both! Of course with an older home, if you feel your roof may need a bit of shoring up, we can advise you.
It’s also best to have a home’s energy efficiency evaluated so that when you do have solar panels installed, you’re not paying for draughty rooms and non-efficient appliances. This evaluation could even mean you require less solar panels than before.
Suitability for solar panels is all about how much sun your roof receives. For a roof that’s in full or partial shade, the creation of electricity is minimised and may not be worth the investment. We can certainly help you out with a free solar quote.
What can I save in 2019?
First, you’ll save on the cost of installation. Already a popular energy alternative, prices on solar panel installations in Perth will keep falling as more people come on board.
The immediate savings come during the day when you’re home to use the power as the sun is converted. If you’re home at night, and you haven’t stored your power in a battery, you’ll be drawing from the grid.
Any of your unused solar power will have gone into the grid for which you receive a payment (feed-in tariff) from your electricity supplier. Feed-in tariffs for Western Australia start at 7.1 cents per kilowatt hour. If you’re drawing on power from your energy retailer, you could be paying upwards of thirty cents per kilowatt hour so it pays to shop around.
Beyond 2019, estimations of paying off an average 5kw solar investment are around the three to four year mark, and over its lifetime, it’ll save you around $50,000 in power bills. Plus, you’ve seriously increased the value of your home!
Solar energy is a major step to reducing your carbon footprint. Why on earth burn coal for power when by drawing on the sun’s power, you’re harnessing a constant, naturally occurring power source that is clean, renewable and in Western Australia, abundant! It’s why renewable power is becoming more common, from household use to massive solar farms.
This safe technology is taking important beyond the 21st Century. Take the Jinko 275W Eagle series. There is a lot to like about it, having claimed No. 1 global solar module maker position in 2016 and reaching new levels of efficiency in extremely hot environments.
While mobile connectivity even stretches to your solar panels via web-connected inverters like Fronius.
