In a day and age where the environment and its state causes more and more global concern, solar power provides clean, efficient and an effective way to generate energy without producing any carbon emissions. Some of key benefits of adding solar panels include:
Lower Energy Bills
Solar energy is free once your system is installed. By reducing reliance on the grid, solar customers see significant savings on electricity costs month after month. Typical systems provide 40-60% of a household’s energy needs.
Increase Property Value
Homes with solar PV systems installed have a higher resale value. Going green with solar demonstrates you’re forward-thinking and environmentally conscious.
Tax Incentives & Feed-In Tariffs
There are government initiatives to reward solar customers, like the Smart Export Guarantee. You can even earn an income from surplus energy fed back into the grid.
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Using renewable solar energy means producing fewer carbon emissions that contribute to climate change. Every kWh of solar electricity offsets CO2 pollution that would otherwise come from fossil fuels.
How Solar Panels Work
Solar PV systems convert sunlight into usable DC electricity. The solar cells are connected together in panels that mount on your roof and connect to an inverter. The inverter converts the DC current into AC power to run lighting, appliances, and other needs.
On sunny days, your solar panels will produce more energy than you require, so the excess electricity gets exported back to the grid. This results in a credit on your energy bills through the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) program.
Solar panels produce energy even on cloudy days, just less than on bright, sunny days. As long as daylight hits your panels, they’ll keep generating useful energy for your home or business.
